Leena cries foul over closure of her satellite TV station

Well-known TV host Leena Jungjunya staged a noisy protest at the Peace and Order Maintaining Command Wednesday over the POMC's order to close her satellite TV channel.

Leena came inside the Army Club, where the POMC is located, at noon and started shouting in criticisms of Army chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha, the chief of the POMC.

Leena's Hot TV station was among satellite TV stations, whose broadcasts were banned by the POMC on Tuesday.

Leena said her station did not present provocative or distorted reports but her TV programmes were aimed at educating people.

Leena initially wanted to see only Prayuth but an Army officer later convinced her to file a complaint with Prayuth's representative.
