The Arab Satellite Communications Organization (Arabsat) has won a case leveled against them in a top French court by Qatar’s beIN SPORTS, the organisation said in a statement.

A press release issued by Arabsat accuses beIN of distributing fake news. “The Arab Satellite Communications Organization (Arabsat) welcomes the Thursday, June 13, 2019, ruling issued by the President of Tribunal de Grande Instance de Paris on the false allegations made by Qatar’s beIN Sports and its France-based branch.

“Arabsat greatly values and respects the integrity of the French judiciary, which has skillfully and professionally addressed the allegations of Qatar’s Al Jazeera subsidiary, beIN Sports. The judiciary’s ruling rejected all allegations made by beIN against Arabsat, confirming Arabsat’s valid position regarding all the accusations and defamation attempts led by Qatar’s media group, which sought to link our organization to the dubious beoutQ piracy.
