Radio and TV Marti Slammed in Geneva

HAVANA TIMES, Feb 3 — The radio and television aggression that the US maintains against Cuba were charged with being illegal by the World Radio Communications Conference, reported the Granma newspaper.

At the meeting being held in Geneva, Cuba yesterday complained to the forum of increased US interference with its national airwaves.

According to the Cuban government, more than 20 transmitters are broadcasting different audio and television programs from the US with more than 2,000 hours of programming weekly, including calls for terrorist actions against the island.

Cuba added that from December 22 and 29, 2011, transmissions were conducted on broadcasting band reserved exclusively for use by Cuban stations.

The international agency confirmed the illegality of these attacks, a position that it has upheld since its previous meeting in 2007.
