Muvi TV, Komboni Radio lose injunction


THE Lusaka High Court has thrown out an application for judicial review by Muvi Television and Komboni Radio Limited over the decision of the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) to suspend the broadcasting licences of the two stations.
In this case, Muvi Television and Komboni Radio had challenged the decision by IBA to suspend their broadcasting licences for alleged professional misconduct.
But when the matter came up judgment yesterday, High Court Judge Mwiinde Siavwapa threw out an application on grounds that it was misconstrued and misconceived because the two stations did not first seek an intervention from the Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services according to the IBA Act.
