Bahrain bans Al Jazeera channels

MANAMA, June 10, 2017

As the conflict between Qatar and some of its Gulf neighbours intensifies, Bahrain has banned all hotels, restaurants and tourist facilities from airing Al Jazeera TV channel.

The Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA) yesterday (June 9) issued an official circular to all tourism establishments operating in the Kingdom, including hotels and restaurants in this connection.

“The BTEA mandates that all television receivers available in tourism facilities must be reprogrammed to remove all channels related to Al Jazeera Network.

Facilities include hotels, restaurants or other tourist establishments.

BTEA warned that tourism facilities running such channels will face tough action.

"The violation of this circular is punishable by law either by imprisonment, fine or both. Facilities who fail to comply with the circular will face closure and their tourism license will be revoked immediately," it added.-TradeArabia News Service
