Baku. Farid Mirzayev – APA. Baku Court of Appeal considered on Friday an appeal filed by ANS Independent Broadcasting Media Company against the decision of Baku Administrative Economic Court No. 1.


During the hearing the court rejected the company’s appeal.


Azerbaijan’s National Council for Television and Radio adopted a decision to suspend the broadcasting of ANS from 18:30 (UTC/GMT +4 hours) July 18 for a period of one month and to file a lawsuit to the court for withdrawing its license dated Oct. 25, 2013. This decision was made given the appeal of the Prosecutor General’s Office, dated July 18, 2016, as well as the requirements of the articles 11, 23 and 32 of the law “On the Television and Radio Broadcasting”, in order to prevent the provocation aimed at undermining the strategic cooperation relations between Turkey and Azerbaijan and not to allow the open propaganda of terrorism.


The company then appealed to the Baku Administrative Economic Court No. 1 against this decision, but the court rejected the appeal.
