BROADCASTING OF “VOICE OF AMERICA” AND “RADIO LIBERTY” VIA “TURKSAT” SATELLITE RESTORED

November 10th, 2009
Broadcasting of “Radio Liberty” and “Voice of America” via Turksat satellite has been restored. At this time, it is possible to listen to these radio channels via Turksat. The broadcasting of two radios via Turksat had been ceased since 27 October.

Although it was reported on the website of Radio Liberty that technical problems were the reason for this problem, there was no information about the time when this problem would be solved. The Institute for Reporters` Freedom and Safety (IRFS) addressed information inquiries to the authorities of Turksat satellite and Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs to investigate this problem, the inquiries were not responded to.
