ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court has issued notices to controversial television anchor Mubashir Luqman and the CEO of ARY News for defaming the judiciary in a program aired on May 29, Dawn reported Tuesday.
A three-member special bench, headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal, ordered the Deputy Attorney General to explain why the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority was functioning on an ad hoc basis.
