Local TV

Lawsuit against the Government , Published 04/06/1997 00:00:00


The Chairman of TV2, Jan Erik Knarbakk, has informed the family, culture and administration committee of the Parliament that, if the Parliament wishes to remove the 75% distribution limitation for channels which co-operate with local TV, TV2 will contribute to such a solution by withdrawing its lawsuit against the Government.

The board of TV2 has concluded that TV2’s lawsuit against the Government for breach of the company’s concession agreement should not be an obstacle to a final and constructive political solution for local TV as it relates to the question of a networking partner.
