ArmInfo.The Commission on TV and Radio of Armenia (CTR) held a meeting at which the issue of applying administrative penalties against UCOM, as well as Armenia TV and the Second Armenian TV Channel was considered.
The penalty against Armenia TV is due to the broadcast of television programs (films), other audiovisual materials that may have a negative impact on health, mental and physical development, and the upbringing of minors.
CTR expressed dissatisfaction with these broadcasters also in connection with the display of erotic materials, horror scenes and apparent violence.
The reason for the application of administrative penalties in relation to "Second Armenian TV Channel" LLC was the display of advertisements of various companies, including cigarette manufacturers, during the
"Lraber" information program, which violates the requirements of subsection 15 (5) of the RA Law on Advertising.
A penalty at the rate of thousandfold the minimum wage will be applied to this television company. Previously, for the same reason, CTR has already imposed an administrative penalty on the same company. And what kind of penalty is applied to Armenia TV in the CTR report does not noted.
