Antia said the invitation would help the commission to understand the circumstances that led to the assault.

“As a regulatory body for the broadcast media, the NBC cannot overlook this”, he noted.

“Broadcasting should guarantee fairness for all citizens and a broadcaster should grant a right of reply to every citizen before passing judgment.’’
