Prague, 8.4.2011 0:52, (ROMEA)

At its sixth meeting on 5 April 2011, the Czech Council for Radio and Television Broadcasting (Rada pro rozhlasové a televizní vysílání - RRTV) revoked the license granted to the Touchdown, spol. s.r.o. company for the operation of radio broadcasting of the ROTASAT program by satellite. ROTASAT was to have been a Roma radio station similar to the internet Rota radio station operated by the Dženo organization led by Ivan Veselý.

ROTASAT was originally meant to report on coexistence between national minorities in the Czech Republic,on the issue of discrimination, etc. Its target audience was to have been listeners in the Czech Republic and abroad.

The station planned programs in English through which it intended to reach listeners primarily in Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Spain. Its license was revoked because the station did not begin broadcasting during the 180 day time period after the license was granted.
