Taipei, Dec. 7 (CNA) The Taipei High Administrative Court on Monday rejected a request by CTiTV for an injunction to prevent the shutdown of its CTi News channel when its six-year broadcast license expires on Dec. 11.

CTiTV filed the injunction request after its application for the renewal of CTi News' broadcast license was rejected by the National Communications Commission (NCC) on Nov. 18.

The injunction request sought to allow the continued operation of the channel and to prevent the NCC from allocating the channel 52 slot to another company during a formal administrative suit filed by CTiTV against the NCC.

In a statement Monday, the court said CTiTV could not prove that it had a high chance of winning its lawsuit against the NCC, which is one of the conditions under which an injunction could be granted.    [FULL  STORY]
