A com­mit­tee of the Coun­cil of State yes­ter­day re­jected a se­ries of in­junc­tions lodged by the coun­try’s pri­vate tele­vi­sion chan­nels against State Min­is­ter Nikos Pap­pas over a TV li­cense auc­tion that is due to take place in Au­gust.

The Sus­pen­sions Com­mit­tee re­jected the in­junc­tion re­quests sub­mit­ted by Al­pha, Star, Ep­silon, An­tenna, Skai and Mega TV chan­nels, deem­ing that the auc­tion was not detri­men­tal to them.

In its rul­ing, the court’s com­mit­tee noted that hold­ing an auc­tion for TV li­censes was one of Greece’s com­mit­ments to its in­ter­na­tional cred­i­tors.
