A Vilnius court on Monday suspended the rebroadcasting of the Russian-produced First Baltic Channel in the territory of Lithuania for three months.

The court ruling is final and not subject to appeals, the court's spokeswoman Sigita Jacinevičienė-Baltaduonė told BNS.

"After analyzing the commission's request and studying the written material, the video recording of the Man and Law feature, the court found that the circumstances established by the commission are consistent with the provisions of the Law on Provision of Information to the Public and granted the commission's request to sanction the October 9 finding," said Jacinevičienė-Baltaduonė.

The court upheld Wednesday's decision of the Lithuanian Radio and Television Commission to suspend broadcasts of the First Baltic Channel's contents produced in Russia for three months.

The decision came after the Russian-language channel aired a broadcast on Soviet aggression against Lithuanian citizens on January 13, 1991. The show was met with outrage due to what was perceived as its propagandist nature and distortion of facts.

The commission said the broadcast contained misleading information that fuelled hatred, mocked the people of Lithuania, and scorned the memory of Lithuanian freedom fighters.

Meanwhile, the First Baltic Channel issued a statement on Friday, saying the move to suspend the broadcasts without a court order was unlawful.
