CURRENT BROADCAST LAW WILL BE REVISED

On October 29 another session of the working group on improving the broadcast legislation took place. The legislation regards the regulation of the process of switching from analogue to digital broadcast in Armenia. At the session it was resolved to work out an amendments’ package to the current RA Law “On Television and Radio”, instead of drafting a new broadcast law. As it has been reported, the working group, headed by the RA Human Rights Defender Armen Harutiunian, was formed by the initiative of RA President Serzh Sargsian in September 2010 (see details in YPC Weekly Newsletter, October 8-14, 2010).
