Azadi Radio misconstrued my comments: IECC chief

Azadi Radio misconstrued my comments: IECC chief

Nov 29, 2015 - 17:44

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Independent Electoral Complaints Commission (IECC) chief Abdul Sattar Sadat on Sunday claimed Azadi Radio had quoted him out of context.

Speaking to reporters here, Sadat said he did not tell the radio he would expose secrets behind irregularities in last year’s elections if the incumbent commissioners were dismissed.

He warned the Azadi Radio to correct the news or he would lodge a complaint with the authorities concerned.

Without going into details, the IECC chief said he had informed Azadi Radio to make necessary corrections in the unauthentic information the media outlet had published.

He said if the radio did not correct the news in two days, he would file a formal complaint with the Media Complaints Commission.

Pajhwok tried to contact Azadi Radio officials for comments, but received no response.
