TV stations fined

State-run Slovak Television and private television channel Markíza must each pay Sk500,000 (€12,200) fines, after Supreme Court rulings yesterday.

Markíza's fine has been imposed for advertising tobacco products in its team adventure sports programme West extra dávka, whereas STV has been fined the same sum for hidden advertising in the travel programme Krížom-krážom.

Two earlier fines imposed on Markíza and private Košice-based Top Radio were cancelled by the court.
