THREE EMPLOYEES OF ANS TV FIRED

March 2nd, 2009
ANS TV Producers for Fictional and Publicist Programs Saadat Mammadova, Shahin Asadov and Gulnara Bagirova were dismissed from their jobs.

ANS Company Groups Vice-president Mirshahin Agayev told this to the Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety.
According to Agayev, on 26 February, during a one-minute remembrance for Khojali tragedy victims that was broadcast live on ANS, the journalists behaved in a manner dishonoring the memory of the victims. Therefore, they were dismissed from their jobs. IRFS attempted to contact the producers to receive information regarding the incident; however, we could not find their contacts.
