Skopje, 09.03.2016 – Based on the results of an ad hoc supervision of several editions of the “MIlenko Nedelkovski Show” in a row, the Agency has reached a conclusion that Kanal 5 TV has violated Article 48 of the Law on Audio and Audiovisual Media Services by successively making editorial decisions that made it possible for the author of the show to incite and spread discrimination, intolerance and hatred on the grounds of sexual orientation.

Considering the fact that the Law does not envisage a measure against violating Article 48, the Agency has pointed it out to Kanal 5 TV that the latter should stop this practice, and has submitted the recordings of the 15, 22, 29 January, 5 and 12 February 2016 editions to the Committee on Protection Against Discrimination, seeking action in accordance with the Law on Preventing and Protection Against Discrimination and the Protocol on Defining the Procedure for Action in Cases of Protection against Discrimination Based on Sexual Orientation and Gender Equality of November 2015.
