NCC fines CtiTV NT$500,000 for failing to appoint an ombudsman as promised

By Shelley Shan  /  Staff Reporter

CtiTV should have appealed the ruling and sought other administrative remedies if it thought the commission’s ruling was unfair, but it has done nothing of the sort, the commission said.

The NCC said it interpreted the channel’s silence as conforming to the ruling.

Before the renewal, the commission had entrusted an independent committee to review CtiTV’s performance, which had recommended that the commission reject the channel’s license renewal application.

However, the commission did not follow the recommendation, it said.

In other developments, CtiTV, CTV and TVBS were fined NT$400,000, NT$200,000 and NT$200,000 respectively for displaying images of a man being tortured by gangsters, it said.
