The head of TVP public television network, Jacek Kurski, has been dismissed, with unnamed sources claiming that Polish President Andrzej Duda would only grant €442 million funding for the Polish state broadcaster pending his removal.
Duda has now signed an amendment granting TVP and Polish Radio the hundreds of millions of funding, which was required after subscription losses.
The head of the National Media Council (RMN), Krzysztof Czabański, took part in the same briefing, stating that RMN will decide the case of dismissing Kurski by Monday.
According to Czabański, four out of the five members of the RMN have already voted via e-mail to dismiss Kurski.
