[JURIST] A major Nepalese radio station appealed to the country's Supreme Court Sunday after its office was raided and equipment seized [AP report] by Nepalese police on Friday. Kantipur FM filed a writ to the court to condemn the raid and to stop the government from implementing a press ordinance that prohibits FM radio stations from broadcasting. Most FM radios stopped broadcasting Monday in deference to the law approved [JURIST report] by King Gyanendra [BBC profile]. The ordinance has also been opposed by the Nepalese Bar Association and the Federation of Nepalese Journalists. Kantipur FM has been a staunch critic of the government since Gyanendra took over the government [JURIST archive] in February and suspended press freedoms under an emergency statute. PTI has more.
