The Central Electoral Board initiates a disciplinary procedure against the Catalan Media Corporation for violating information neutrality


The Central Electoral Board accepts the appeal presented by Ciudadanos’ against the decision of the Provincial Electoral Board of Barcelona not to discipline the Catalan Media Corporation (CCMA) for airing a documentary about the family members of the 1 October political prisoners during the Sense Ficció programme on 9 April, during the general election period. The Central Electoral Board rules that the TV3 channel violated the principles of information neutrality and decides to initiate a disciplinary procedure. The CCMA appeals both this decision and the Central Electoral Board’s 27 March ruling that TV3 violated information neutrality in its coverage of the pro-independence demonstration held in Madrid on 16 March in front of the Supreme Court.
