News reporters protest the injuction against news in Iceland

News reporters at the state TV and radio station,RUV and the press union,have protested the injunction that was ordered by the Reykjavík District Commissioner against the state TV news media.

They say that the injuction is " ludicrus " and against public interest.
RUV was planning to cover the news about Wikileaks top secret information about loans from Kaupthing bank ,just before the banking collapse ,last september.
The injuction,was only against the state media ,RUV,but not any other media in Iceland.

They also say,that if the courts confirm the injuction,then Parliement must change the laws about news in Iceland.
