ISLAMABAD: In light of a Islamabad High Court directive, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) Friday asked the Information Ministry to jointly find a solution to the issue of non-payment of salaries to BOL News Television staff.
The Rawalpindi-Islamabad Union of Journalists (RIUJ) had filed a writ petition at the IHC against BOL News managers for not paying staff salaries. The Ministry of Interior, Information Ministry and PEMRA were nominated in the petition.
On October 7, 2015, the court had ordered them to quickly come to a decision and wind up the issue. It is in this context that PEMRA sent a letter to the Information Ministry.
BOL could not be launched last year after its parent company Axact was allegedly found involved in selling fake degrees and its CEO Shoaib Ahmed Shaikh got arrested.
