Pressures are growing against the few media outlets that adopt an attitude other than what the government of Turkey wants and imposes.
Istanbul-based independent media outlet IMC TV was taken off the air Friday afternoon after Ankara Chief Prosecutor Ramazan Dinç demanded the suspension of the channel’s frequency by the General Directorate of private satellite operator Türksat Company. The channel is accused of “spreading propaganda for an illegal organisation”.
The independent TV channel was often been pointed as a target by pro-government media outlets which also highlighted calls for its closure recently.
