A-G says Channel 10's license can be extended through 2012

Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein sent a legal opinion Sunday morning to the Second Broadcast Authority, saying that Channel 10's broadcast license can be extended until the end of 2012. The station, one of two privately owned television broadcasters in Israel, has been in danger of shutting down over past-due licensing fees.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu last week instructed Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman to postpone a vote on legislation intended on saving the television station from being shut down due to debts it owes to the Second Broadcast Authority. The move was designed to allow the government to find a solution to prevent the private broadcaster from being shuttered.
