The Knesset Economics Committee failed to reach a decision Thursday on a request to delay repayment of Channel 10's NIS 44 million debt to 2012, Army Radio reported.
The chairman of the joint Knesset
Economics and Education Committee MK Carmel Shama- Hacohen (Likud) agreed Wednesday to hold another hearing on the
station’s debt payments.
President Shimon Peres said Wednesday that he sees the
struggle for the future of Channel 10 – which is in danger of closing next month
if the committee does not approve the postponement – as a struggle for the
democratic character of Israel.
