The Danish Radio and Television Board has revoked the broadcasting license of Roj TV, a Kurdish-language channel disseminating propaganda of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), for two months.
After the City Court of Copenhagen fined Roj TV 400,000 euros on Jan. 15 for being financed by the PKK and disseminating PKK propaganda both in Turkey and Europe, the Danish board requested a number of documents and video tapes of broadcasted programs from the Roj TV management to determine whether the channel really disseminates the terrorist PKK propaganda.
However, as Roj TV failed to deliver these documents and video recordings, the Danish board has decided to revoke the broadcasting license of the channel for two months. During these two months Roj TV is expected to deliver all documents and tapes previously requested by the board, facing permanent suspension of its license if it fails to do so.
Chief Executive of the Danish Board of Radio and Television Christian Scherfig spoke to reporters regarding to the incident and said Roj TV has only delivered 52 percent of the documents and broadcast tapes that the board requested. He further stated if all of these requested documents and broadcast tapes do not reach the board within two months, the board will convene to give the final decision and might revoke the broadcasting license of the channel permanently, adding that the board has not encountered any pro-terrorism content in the documents and broadcast tapes that have been delivered to it up to now.
