DhiFM apologises for broadcasting MNBC One live feed

Privately-owned radio station, DhiFM, has apologised for accidentally switching to a live feed of the MNBC One eight o’clock news bulletin on November 11.

Sun Online reported that Mohamed Jinah, head of news and current affairs at DhiFM, was questioned by police last Thursday after the state broadcaster lodged a complaint.

Jinah told press outside police headquarters that the radio station had apologised to MNBC CEO Mohamed Asif and explained how the incident occurred in a letter to Police Commissioner Ahmed Faseeh.

Jinah said he regretted the state broadcaster’s decision to file the complaint after Asif accepted the apology.
