Lithuania Passes Mass Media Law
VILNIUS, Lithuania, 97/06/03 (TS) -- The new nations of Eastern Europe
continue to establish new laws and charters. Lithuania has just passed a new
mass media law, as Saulius Girnius of OMRI reports.
The Seimas on 2 July adopted the much-discussed mass media law, BNS
reported. Until January 2002, state-owned Lithuanian Radio and TV is to be
financed by budget allocations, subscription payments, sales of its
programs, sponsorship, charity funds, and advertising revenues. The law
establishes a National Radio and TV Board, which will appoint the LRTV
director-general and approve programming. The Seimas also ratified the
Lithuanian-Polish treaty on their common border.
