Plaintiff E. Mammadli said the lawsuit is founded, and the opening of a new frequency in Sumgayit city is essential. Then he submitted the copy of the list of signatures gathered from Sumgayit people to open a new frequency to the court.
Defendant’s representative T.Mammadov did not accept the claim and put forth a motion demanding that a decision be adopted to throw out (xitam vermek) the lawsuit filed against the NTRC for the activity and (inactivity) of a high-ranking official.
Judge M.Bayramov said that the motion will be considered during the next hearing hearing and scheduled the next hearing for 24 June at 4:15 p.m.
In January 2009 LESY Public Union appealed to the NTRC to open a new TV channel in Sumgayit, but the appeal was rejected. LESY appealed to court to declare the NTRC’s refusal to grant a license to LESY to open a new TV regional channel in Sumgayit unfounded.
