The Independent Media Commission (IMC) reminds all licensees who have not paid yet the annual license fee that the deadline to fulfill this legal obligation is 30 June 2020.
Despite the IMC's initiative to exempt licensees from paying the annual fee 2020, due to the consequences caused by the Covid 19 pandemic, it was impossible to materialize such an initiative, due to legal barriers.
Payment of the annual license fee is a legal obligation for licensees, as defined by Law No. 04/L-44 on the Independent Media Commission, respectively Article 26, which stipulates that the media are obliged to pay the annual fee for IMC license according to the license categories defined by Regulation IMC-2017/03 on the Annual License Fee.
Regretfully, IMC instructs all licensees to complete the payment of the annual fee for IMC license according to the deadline set by a bylaw, thus fulfilling their legal obligation.
