CCN court date is a requirement not a choice

CCN must appear in court on 14 May 2012 to justify its broadcast of the rape of a minor, which was allegedly aired by Crime Watch over a three-day stretch and has led to nine charges for a possible breach of the Telecommunications Act.

One can only presume that TV6 Head of News and Current Affairs, Dominic Kalipersad, has volunteered for the outing.

Thus far, CCN’s only statement about its controversial Crime Watch programme has come from Kalipersad who pointed to the show’s viewership and told the nation that: “viewing the show is a choice, not a requirement.”

Kalipersad can now try to impress a Port of Spain Magistrate with his ideas on where responsibility lies for TV6′s programming. The citizens on candle-light vigil outside CCN are advised to get court clothes.

Meanwhile, TV6‘s holding company, OCM, is awaiting regulatory approval from the Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (TATT) over the purchase of several radio stations including i95.5 fm, Red 96.7 fm and Hitz 107.1 fm.

Wired868 is unsure whether OCM appreciates that TATT approval is also not a requirement.
