HA NOI (VNS) — The information and communications ministry yesterday decided to fine Viet Nam Television VND50 million (US$2,300) for broadcasting the Asia's Got Talent 2015 show without obtaining the ministry's permission.

The show was illegally broadcast on VTV6 channel on March 22 and 23.

The ministry had refused to issue the broadcasting licence for the show on March 18, because it wanted VTV to tighten fact-checking procedures for shows and programmes being broadcast to avoid violation of regulations.

Recently, the ministry fined a reality show and a programme broadcast by VTV for incorporating false information. — VNS
