Serbia's RRA shuts down eight stations

Seven radio stations and one television station in Serbia have been shut down for broadcasting without a licence. The Republic Broadcasting Agency (RRA) has shut down the following stations for broadcasting illegally on the territory of Belgrade: radio stations Kruna, Hit, Kriket, OK, Kontakt, Radio 24 and Maksis, and the television station Palma.
Some station officials showed resistance to the officials who came to close down the stations and broke some equipment of the RRA. The Agency said that those who cause problems will have charges pressed against them.
