The country's telecommunications regulator has moved to suspend the broadcast licence held by Peace TV, a satellite-based television channel linked to the red-shirt United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), for a full month.

The decision was reached by the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) board at a meeting on Wednesday, said secretary-general Takorn Tantasith.

The NBTC said it suspended the channel's licence because two of its programmes were deemed to contain content dealing with plots to undermine the constitutional monarchy, in violation of Section 37 of the act on television and broadcast business operations, he said.
