Allegations that changes in Law on Electronic Communications concern media and broadcasters are false, reads the statement made the Communications Commisssion. The Commission also claims that the changes don't have anything to do with Law on Broadcasting and thus are not connected to media and TV channels.
"In order to tackle the flaws in the legislature about managing critical infrastructure, new changes are to be made in the Law on Electronic Communications.
According to the draft law, the changes in the mechanisms of effective execution concern only authorized persons who own critical infrastructure. In the field of electronic communications, the following list of infrastructures is deemed as critical: optical-fiber cable, operations technical resources, resources needed for general electronic communications which ensure fixed internet and mobile services.
With regards to the change in Law on Broadcasting, it only concerns the ensuing adjustment of change in Law on Electronic Communications. The aforementioned change is stipulated in the Association Agreement with the EU under the 6th paragraph of Article 105.
Therefore, we emphasize once again that the discussed draft law has no connection with broadcasting", - reads the statement.
