The Media Council ruled on Thursday that bids for the 95.3 MHz frequency used by Klubrádió are formally invalid.
The Media Council announced that it has proceeded in harmony with norms characterising a state governed by rule of law, and fully honours legal principles made clear by a court. The Media Council says it follows from a court ruling stating that another bidder, Autórádió, did not sign all the pages of its bid, that Klubrádió should have signed the back blank page of the bidding document.
Klubrádió responded that the authority has but one fixed idea, to eliminate Klubrádió, and has violated the very act it had shaped to its taste. The Media Council is systematically unlawful and its dismissal is required in the name of protecting freedom of press and democracy, the radio station averred.
