Kazakhstan continues ban on news web site

From Radio Free Europe:

In a ruling on 25 August, the civil-suits section of Kazakhstan's Supreme Court left in force an earlier decision by an Astana city court on the banning of the independent online daily set.kz, "Kazakhstan Today" reported. In the initial decision, the Astana city court refused an appeal by the publishers of set.kz, who had hoped to overturn a resolution by the Ministry of Culture, Information, and Sports to close the publication. Newspaper representative Sergei Utkin described the latest ruling as predictable and vowed to appeal. Set.kz was conceived as a continuation of the independent newspaper "Respublika," which was shut down by the authorities earlier this year
