Kurdish television Roj-TV back on air (Intelsat)
The Copenhagen-based Kurdish television Roj-TV, banned from air as a result of a court ruling stating that the network was "controlled and financed" by the Kurdish terrorist group PKK, has reached an agreement with Greek satellite provider Intelsat to broadcast its signal.
The broadcasting agreement allows viewers in Kurdish regions of Turkey, in the Balkans and in the Middle East to get access to Roj-TV's programs. However, viewers in Western Europe and Scandinavia do not yet have access to Roj-TV through Intelsat.
Roj-TV was found guilty last week of "promoting terrorism" by a Danish court for making propaganda for the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), an outlawed group listed as a terrorist organization by the European Union and the United States.
Denmark is currently investigating into Roj-TV in order to withdraw the station's broadcasting licence. However, according to the broadcasting agreement, Intelsat is now legally responsible for Roj-TV's political.
