BANGKOK — A television channel previously sanctioned by authorities for its content has again been ordered off the air.

 

Voice TV will be taken entirely off the air Tuesday for 15 days by order of broadcasting regulators on the basis of rules put in place by the ruling junta several years ago.

They can stage a coup with 15 days, don’t you think?

I am starting to have grave misgivings about this election. First the army vehicles on the streets yesterday, and now this. Blatant threats I would say. Now, I am no particular fan of Thaksin but the best way forward is for one of his parties to win this election and just get on with whatever it was he was doing. The army proved they couldn't organize a cockup in a brothel, so time to get off the pot and let others have a go.

Voice TV suspended for 15 days for airing ‘provocative’ content

The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) issued an administrative order suspending the operation of digital TV broadcaster Voice TV for 15 days for allegedly airing provocative content.

 

NBTC commissioner Lt-General Perapong Manakit said Monday that the order would take effect from midnight today.

 

The order was sent to Voice TV earlier in the day.

 

Though declining to specify details of the “provocative” content, he just said that the content in question was aired on the Tonight Thailand programme on December 16, as well as on Wakeup News on January 21, 28, 29 and on February 4.

 

Perapong also insisted that the NBTC had not been ordered by anybody to issue the order against Voice TV and that the regulator treated all broadcasters fairly.

 

He added that the suspension was ordered on the basis of certain articles of the Broadcasting Act of 2551, including Article 37. Article 37 bans the airing of content deemed to affect national security or peace and the morale of the people.

I take it they didn't mean 'provocative' in the 'alluring' or even 'inspirational' sense of the word.

But aren’t the elections supposed to be held in 41 days?

That’s an impressive algorithm they’ve got there.

'Article 37 bans the airing of content deemed to affect national security or peace and the morale of the people.'

 

And is that old fart still on at 6PM? Certainly lowers my morale.

If you understand enough Thai spend an occasional 30 minutes or whatever and listen to some of their presenters.

 

You'll then understand why they get suspensions.

I could say so, so much - about despicable, craven, sub-human cowards and bullies.

But I won't.

We all know it already anyway.

You are STARTING to have misgivings? This was on the cards from day one after the coup, from the people who brought you 'Returning happiness to the People" at gunpoint. From the people who forced through a constitution they ignore. From the people who ban political gatherings of five people or more and arrest lone protesters on the said charge. From the people who arrested a young man for "eating a sandwich with political intent".

 

From the same people who 'believe' that one of their own 'borrowed' a collection of luxury timepieces from a friend who was conveniently dead when the matter was 'investigated' by the said Minister's colleagues. The same Minister, who on behalf of his coup government, would have us believe that the highest profile woman in Southeast Asia, under 24 hour guard before her trial, simply vanished like a puff of smoke into the night.

 

And I am just getting started. But yes, I think your misgivings may be correct...
