Draft RTVS Bill Continues to Take Flak

Ljubljana, 17 March - A public debate on a proposed new bill on public broadcaster RTV Slovenija, held in parliament on Wednesday, saw wide criticism also of the latest version of the document. Critics feel that the new status of the broadcaster cannot be implemented and that appointment procedures envisaged will not prevent political meddling.
