Commenting article: Bulgaria Stands Firm on Shady DTT Mux Deals

Bulgaria's government said it was surprised by Brussels decision to take it to EU court over the controversial tenders for the operation of what will be the country's DTT multiplexes.

"We have complied with all requirements, set by the European Commission," Transport Minister Ivaylo Moskovski told reporters after it emerged that Bulgaria will be referred to the EU's Court of Justice over the assignment of digital broadcast spectrum.

"We have two or three months during which we can appeal the decision, but the current regulations ensure equal treatment to all operators, which want to bid in the next tender," he added.
