“A1+” CONTINUES THE FIGHT FOR RETURN ON AIR

On April 24 the Freedom of Expression Assistance Fund and the initiative group to protect “A1+” TV company announced a rally to be held on the World Press Freedom Day. The demands, addressed to the authorities at a similar protest action on April 2 (see YPC Weekly Newsletter, April 2-8, 2004), have not been implemented and retain their urgency. These are, namely, the need to hold a broadcast licensing competition for the vacant frequencies as soon as possible and the involvement of the representatives of the public sector in the evaluation of the bids presented.

The rally will be held on May 3 at 16.00 in Yerevan at the square in front of “Moscow” cinema house.
