beIN ‘categorically rejects’ Egypt court fine
March 16 2018 12:42 AM

Qatar’s beIN yesterday slammed an Egyptian court’s decision to slap the sports broadcaster with another multi-million dollar fine, the second anti-trust case in a Cairo court this year. “beIN categorically rejects the local Egyptian court’s judgment and will pursue all available legal means to challenge it,” a spokesperson for the media group told AFP. “The judgment is based on unfounded allegations by the Egyptian Competition Authority that have no basis in fact or law.” The court in Cairo ordered a fine of 400mn Egyptian pounds ($22.7mn) to be paid by beIN on charges of forcing its Egyptian customers to replace existing satellite dishes with new ones in order to catch the channel’s signal.
