A Paris commercial court has spent the past few days listening to an emergency action brought by Georgia’s public broadcasting TV station GPB, and Eutelsat. A verdict is due Monday.
Last week Eutelsat firmly denied being in any way culpable in the station being taken off air, saying that it had no contract with the broadcaster. GPB alleges that Eutelsat has censored its transmissions because of Russian pressure.
GPB is seeking serious damages, to the tune of €50,000 a day if Eutelsat does not put its transmissions back on air, on its W7 satellite.
