Mexico top court backs telecoms watchdog
Mexico's top court said the country's new phone and television regulator, IFT, has power to enforce rules that were laid out in a constitutional reform approved last year, according to a statement from the President's office.
Mexico's President Enrique Peña Nieto last week asked the Supreme Court to intervene after a legal battle in a lower court between broadcaster Televisa and satellite pay-television provider Dish Mexico forced Mexico's new telecommunications regulator to suspend a decision.
had said a Mexico City judge forced it to halt a planned decision on enforcing an element of last year's telecom reform known as a must-carry regulation.
