EGYPT DID NOT SHUT DOWN ANY SATELLITE CHANNEL: MINISTER: Egypt' information minister Salah Abdulmaqsood has dismissed as "rumours" reports about the government shutting down satellite channels, Kuwait Times has reported. "Some satellite channels broke the law and did not respond to the warnings given to them to change their stance as per the law. That led to the broadcast signal of the satellite company being stopped. The channel was not closed," he said. "The news spread by some people about closure of satellite channels is nothing but rumours spread by those violating the law. The fact is that these channels are still broadcasting," said Abdulmaqsood.
