CBNSat 5th Hearing on Monday

The court case involving CBNSat now looks like a chapter off the "Neverending Story". Now that investigations are to be carried out into the other TV Stations then I hope that they do not seal those stations and also start inconviencing their subscribers too. Hopefully on Monday all CBNSat customers will get good news.

I have posted the newspapers reports on the Daily News and the Daily Mirror below and I have highlighted certain stuff and you can judge the content and see what is going on. It is very obviously.

Anyway a request out to the Comet Cable guy who is posting on the CBNSat forum. Please do not post in this place for fun. This is for the CBNSat customers who are inconvienced as a result of this and do not use this forum to compare CBNSat with Comet Cable and play the fool with CBNSat subscribers as we never know what the CID will do as a result of the investigation into Comet Cable.

*** Please do not post using foul language. Your frustration is understood but please understand that there are several people reading this forum who may be offended by the use of such language.

Dear Friends,

I have to give you some dissapointing news. I got in contact with a government official who works closely with TRC. He said that the government will not issue the neccesary licences to CBNSat.

This is not a joke or a prank. I just inform you to know. Now CID is trying to tie this case with the terrorists and they will say that a satellite operation from Sri Lanka will not be permitted.

This is serious !

There is no doubt that if CBNSat is linked with terrorists it should be banned for the countrys security but that should be based on the facts. Not on fiction !

FMM statement:

The Free Media Movement is extremely concerned about the arbitrary decision taken by the authorities to seal the private satellite broadcasting station CBN Sat on the night of Tuesday June 6 2006.

This company has been broadcasting in Sri Lanka for over one year and has publicly advertised their services. Many Sri Lankans who wish to watch satellite broadcast programmes including foreign news and entertainment have availed of their services. If there were any allegations as to the legality of this enterprise, it is surely surprising that it has taken so long for the authorities to take action against them. The rumours that have emerged around the sudden suspension of CBN SAT services on the eve of the World Football Cup matches regarding business rivalries as being at the root of the government’s decision are extremely worrying and need to be immediately refuted by those in charge.

The Free Media Movement strongly defends the right of all those living in Sri Lanka to have access to the highest available forms of communication and information technology.

We call on the government and the authorities concerned to take immediate steps to restore access to the clients of CBN SAT and to ensure that the rights to information and knowledge of Sri Lankan citizens are protected.

The Free Media Movement calls on the government to follow due processes of investigation to affirm that the company abides by all rules and regulations governing broadcasting in Sri Lanka, and to proceed with prosecution if it is found that they have indeed acted in violation of such rules and regulations.

I think they'll drag the case further. Because the customer pressure is low.

We have to keep on pestering the neccesary authorities to get CBN soon.

Dear fellow Subscribers ! Noe that the offices are closed for the weekend. Call, fax or email to the contacts on this site.

Lets fill their mailboxes, finish their fax rolls by Monday.

TRC, BOI & SLRC have become a pain to us ! Let's now be a pain to them till they give our CBN back
