Vienna, 7 March 2002
The Vienna South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) is concerned about developments in Kazakhstan.
According to information before SEEMO the weekly Nachnem s Ponedelnika was handed a three-month suspension yesterday (6 March) for failing to number its editions properly
Only two days earlier, on 4 March, the officials issued a six-month suspension to TAN-TV. Its license was suspended for a number of procedural violations. TAN-TV employees say their shutdown is primarily politically motivated, as TAN-TV receives financial support from an oppositional politician.
