Ban on satellite stations ends

- +

The junta has ended a ban on 12 satellite television stations, allowing them to go back on air again, National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) secretary-general Takorn Tantasith said on Sunday. 

The broadcasters have been off air since the coup on May 22. They will be allowed to resume broadcasting on condition they strictly follow the rules set by the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO), he said.

The decision still needs the green light from the NBTC, which will hold talks on the issue on Monday.
