TV Channel 3 said violent content forced executives to cancel the finale of the soap opera "Nua Mek 2" and insisted no political interference was involved. 

It was the first time the TV station publicly addressed the reason for its decision to abruptly end the series last Friday, with three episodes still to go. It was replaced by a new show.
