Spring News fined 50,000 baht for defying NCPO orders


The broadcasting board of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission decided by 4:1 votes on Monday to fine Spring News digital TV station 50,000 baht for defying three NCPO orders.


The board ruled that some of the contents of the Face Time programme which was aired on the night of July 20 are deemed a threat to national security and public good morals and may result in an overthrow of democratic rule.

Moreover, the broadcasting board also issued a warning for Voice TV, saying that the content of the Tonight Thailand programme broadcasted on May 25 last year was deemed a violation of NCPO orders and was not allowed to be aired.

The airing of the programme also went against an agreement between NBTC and Voice TV.
