Panel wants ads banned, transmitters checked - Bangkok Post, July 6, 2005
A House telecommunications sub-committee will ask the government
to suspend the operations of all community radio stations, check
their transmitters before licensing and ban all commercial advertising...
...However, Wuthipong Pongsuwan, adviser to Prime Minister's Office
Minister Suranand Vejjajiva who supervises community radio operations,
said the proposal was not practical.
...Also, the fact some community radio stations were operating from
the houses of some MPs, both in the government and opposition camps,
would make it very difficult to check them without the consent of
those MPs and police support...
