Advertisements that violates the rights of the public must be prohibited

The Audiovisual Media Authority, AMA, has recorded in the last 24 hours the broadcasting of a television commercial on the activity of the European University of Tirana, for the new admissions in this academic year.

The content of the advertisement openly violates the rights of consumers by giving them information about this private educational subject and at the same time disparaging the public education system of the Republic of Albania

AMA requires from audiovisual operators to immediately stop broadcasting this commercial that evidently violates  commercial trade rules because of comparison with other identified institutions.

AMA requires both from the Competition Authority and the Consumer Protection Commission to review this case for legal compliance..
