The management of United Television (UTV) has condemned the action of the 16 persons alleged to be members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who invaded their studio on Saturday, October 8, 2023.

The 16 persons during a live show entered the studio without authorization to disrupt the ‘United Showbiz’ programme.

Subsequently, the police quickly rushed to the scene to intervene, following a formal complaint by the Despite Media Group and the Ministry of Information.

Meanwhile, a statement released by UTV on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, expressed disappointment in the act and said it was taking measures to prevent future occurrences of such incidents.

“We condemn this act of violence and vandalism as it violates our fundamental human rights and freedoms, and the independence of the media as enshrined under Chapters 5 and 12 respectively of the 1992 Constitution of our country. We are deeply concerned about this event and we are diligently taking all security and legal measures to prevent the re-occurrence of this unfortunate incident,” part of the statement read.

The management also indicated that they are not frightened by the turn of events, as they are focused on providing quality content for their audiences.

“We are committed to our values and principles as an Independent Media House and we will not be deterred by unethical and disturbing activities. Our priority is to continue providing quality news and programs while ensuring the safety and security of all stakeholders. We will continue to maintain an impartial and non-biased editorial stance while providing a sale and secure platform for diverse views and opinions to be expressed.”
