Eutelsat S.A. is a French-based satellite provider. Providing coverage over the entire European continent, as well as the Middle East, Africa, India and significant parts of Asia and the Americas, it is one of the world's three leading satellite operators in terms of revenues ......
Eutelsat closed down transmissions of the Falun Gong-linked TV station NTDTV in June 2008, which RSF accused of to appease the Chinese government.
umors have surfaced that Eutelsat might be giving in to Kremlin pressure to terminate broadcast of the recently launched "First Caucasian Channel" in Russian. The pro-Western channel is operated by Georgian government to counter Russian propaganda in the Caucasus region
As of 15 October 2012, Eutelsat cut off all Iranian TV channels.
Eutelsat Communications Chief executive officer is Michel de Rosen."
"Michel de Rosen (born 1951-02-18) is the CEO of Eutelsat Communications and is a non-executive member of the board of directors of ABB Ltd. He was Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Directors of ViroPharma Incorporated from August 2002 to May 2008. From 1982 to 1999, de Rosen held several positions in Rhone-Poulenc (France) and Rhone-Poulenc Rorer (USA) (now Sanofi-Aventis), including Chief Executive Officer from May 1995 until December 1999, and Chairman of the Board of Directors from 1996 to 1999.
From 1976 to 1982 de Rosen was auditor at the French Ministries of Finance and Defense.
de Rosen holds an MBA from the École des Hautes Études Commerciales.
de Rosen is or has been on a number of boards:
ABB Ltd (director, since 2002); Aspen Institute  (mentor)
Global Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS  (director)
HTH Worldwide ;(advisor)
InnaPhase Corporation (director, July 2000 - September 2004)
Pennsylvania Bio  (director)
Ursinus College  (trustee)
In an interview with the British newspaper The Sunday Telegraph on 1995-10-08 he was quoted as saying that he ...sees RPR as a mixture of 'hunting' - growing the company by swooping on acquisition 'prey' - and 'farming', less glamorous but vital organic growth and development of new drugs."
"Eutelsat says it is European, but it is actually Israeli. French sounding “Michel de Rosen” runs Eutelsat, an Israeli citizen, company with Israeli stockholders, a company long dictated to by extremist groups within Israel, the militant ultra-nationalists of the Likudist regime of Netanyahu."
"The choice, we are told, is one of a company, Eutelsat Communications. It claims that Iran, 19 news and information sources, some clearly among the best, most dependable and trustworthy in the world, will be silenced.
This is not all.
First of all, the reason given, that Eutelsat is following sanctions is a lie. There are no sanctions against Press TV or other news sources, no UN vote supports it and I would like to see the issue taken before the General Assembly."
