Statement by TVN Management Board regarding media law amendment passed by lower house
In response to lower house of parliament's passing of the anti-TVN bill, TVN Management Board has issued a statement.
The amendment to the Broadcasting Act as adopted is an attack on core democratic principles of freedom of speech, the independence of the media and is directly discriminatory against TVN. We shall remain resolute in defense of TVN24 and other channels owned by TVN Discovery Group.
The outcome of the vote should also be deeply concerning to any enterprise investing in Poland. Through this vote, Poland directly uproots the foundation of the Polish-American relationship built in the last 30 years.
We appeal to the upper house of the Polish parliament – the Senate of the Republic of Poland – and the President of the Republic of Poland, Andrzej Duda, to oppose this project and prevent it from becoming law. Poland’s future as a democratic country in the international arena and its credibility in the eyes of investors depend on this.
