Court upholds appeal in case between broadcasting council and Czech TV

The Supreme Administrative Court has recognised an appeal by the country’s Council for Radio and Television Broadcasting in a case involving public broadcaster Czech TV. In doing so it overruled a city court decision from last year which scrapped a 400,000 crown fine for the broadcaster. Czech TV was fined the amount by the Council for Radio and Television Broadcasting for airing - in the morning hours - a documentary that included scenes of drug abuse. Czech TV argued that the aim was one of prevention but the council concluded the scenes could have negatively impacted youngsters. The Supreme Administrative Court has not made public the reason for its decision.
