“We won’t let any conspiracy against BOL succeed,” he said, urging all journalists to stand by the staff and management of the upcoming channel.
Members from the civil society said the government should carry out fair probe into allegations of fake diplomas issued by Axact, the parent company of BOL, but refrain from interfering in operations of the channel.
They also announced to set up a permanent camp in front of KPC to continue their protest till the channel is launched.
BOL News is to be formally launched on first of Ramadan.
