ISLAMABAD - Chairman of PEMRA Friday invoked Section 33-A through a letter to the Prime Minister seeking assistance from Rangers, police, intelligence agencies and the provincial government in Sindh in an action being taken against cable operators who illegally disrupted Geo News.
A press release said that PEMRA has ordered 11 cable operators to immediately restore Geo News to the position it was on July 28. The release said PEMRA teams would visit the operators' premises to ensure compliance.
Non-compliance of PEMRA order shall be treated as a separate offence, cognizable under Section 29 and 30 of PEMRA Ordinance.
