Pakistan - Geo TV still reeling from censorship

The sports channel Geo Super is Pakistan's new victim of government censorship. Since April 4, she no longer has the right to broadcast these sports programs, arguing that "security conditions" are not met. Geo Super is part of the Geo Television Network, the largest private TV network in Pakistan - and the most popular.

"How the sport, which brings together the nation unified and custody, can he become a security risk?" Asked the Pakistani daily The News, which is part of the Jang newspaper group, which is affiliated to Geo TV . On the website of Geo TV, a short text explains that this censorship of the sports channel is a strategy of intimidation against the government's Geo TV network that broadcasts regularly investigations against corrupt men in power.

Geo TV has been repeatedly censured by Islamabad.
