Today ÍÈÒ-NIT has made the statement I publish it that in history it remains that through many years to look in eyes to this boy, to the boy in a lap - Marian Pocaznoi.
TELEVISION CHANNEL NIT STATEMENT
We consider, that the today's formal press conference spent by chairman ÊÑÒÐ Ìàðèàíîì Ostentatious, pursued the aim to mislead, both mass-media and all Moldavian society, and representatives of the international structures accredited in Moldova. In this connection we consider necessary to refute contentions Ostentatious, made during today's press conference.
As we declared and earlier, representatives ÊÑÒÐ could not give a definite answer on a question, on what basis broadcasting company NIT has been deprived the licence for an announcement. Today it has been once again proved, that the report on television channel monitoring on which basis ÊÑÒÐ has made the decision, mismatches the validity. So Ìàðèàí Ostentatious could not specify, in what reportings which have gone on the air in monitoring, broadcasting company NIT called for violent disobedience. Thereupon we DEMAND, that "independent" ÊÑÒÐ has given a definite answer on a question: when journalists of broadcasting company NIT called the Moldavian people for violence. Also we demand, that the answer to a question has been given also, since what time this structure has incurred mission to interpret the Constitution as in the report that we insisted on overthrow of the constitutional mode is underlined. Representatives ÊÑÒÐ should know, that this question is not in their competence and powers.
Also we demand, that ÊÑÒÐ has presented us the Law in which that audiovisual structures are obliged to praise is underlined, instead of to criticise the power as we consider, that arguments of representatives of Council that we were engaged exclusively in power criticism, do not enter into any frameworks, neither moral, nor legal. On the contrary, we inform ÊÑÒÐ, that the most important mission of mass-media consists in disclosing and illumination of the negative moments in a society that the power ïðåäåðæàùèå have paid to this attention and have undertaken all necessary for their decision.
We also are revolted by the today's statement Ostentatious in which it, explaining the decision of Council on licence withdrawal, operates certain with "numerous complaints» from the televiewers ostensibly dissatisfied with a policy of television channel. Thereupon we wish to notice, that the television channel management has not been informed on presence of similar "complaints". At the same time we declare, that throughout last years ÊÑÒÐ not to time officially, at informal level, did not declare presence of similar complaints. On the contrary, we notice, that we repeatedly represented in ÊÑÒÐ complaints with signatures of the people, the indignant themes the fact, that in their settlements cable operators autocratically exclude NIT from the packages that contradicts the decision of the same ÊÑÒÐ that all national speakers should be without fail included in all cable networks. The first letters thereupon have been addressed in this structure in August, 2010. Till the present moment we have not received any answer from ÊÑÒÐ in the given occasion.
We are revolted by a shameless deceit Ostentatious which has declared that all sanctions NIT have not been cancelled by court. We remind chairman ÊÑÒÐ that all sanctions have been protested, only one of them has been lost, in three cases the decision has been taken out in favour of NIT definitively, the others are on consideration in judicial instances.
Manipulation with public opinion is also the statement Ostentatious that is absolute all monitorings of public organisations for a broadcasting company were negative. The mister Ostentatious has forgotten that monitorings of a civil society in 2010 have been spent also and in 2011 which were not are taken in attention by under control ÊÑÒÐ as their conclusions did not coincide with opinion of bosses of members ÊÑÒÐ.
Are revolted also by the statement Ostentatious that «ÊÑÒÐ has done the utmost for television channel preservation» as that fact is obvious that the body, called to protect mass-media, throughout last three years the repressive decisions has done the utmost for destruction of objectionable television channel.
Thereupon we will address in all international structures on protection of mass-media with an appeal to pay attention to absence of freedom of mass-media in Moldova and on a position of management ÊÑÒÐ.
