Court panel rejects TV channels’ bid for injunction
A committee of the Council of State on Friday rejected a series of injunctions lodged by the country’s private television channels against State Minister Nikos Pappas over a TV license auction that is due to take place in August.
The Suspensions Committee rejected the injunction requests submitted by Alpha, Star, Epsilon, Antenna, Skai and Mega TV channels, deeming that the auction was not detrimental to them.
In its ruling, the court’s committee noted that holding an auction for TV licenses was one of Greece’s commitments to its international creditors.
