Iran will sue Spain over ban on satellite channels

Wednesday, 6 February 2013

Morteza Saffari, Iranian Ambassador to Spain, said that the move to stop the broadcast of HispanTV has no legal basis and that Iran would submit a complaint to Spain’s courts within the next few days.
He said that “European countries” claim to defend freedom of speech and human rights, but they cannot tolerate “even two Iranian television channels” that convey “Iran’s views” to the world. He added that Iran has reliable documents that show that the move to take HispanTV, Iran’s Spanish-language news channel, off Hispasat was carried out under the influence of certain “Zionist streams.” He strongly criticized Madrid’s approach to the issue and called on Spanish authorities to prevent damage to Tehran-Madrid relations.
