LAHORE - The Lahore High Court (LHC) has ordered the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) not to let on air speeches against the judiciary of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and other PML-N members until it deliberates the maintainability of this case.
Justice Mamnoon Rasheed Sheikh was hearing a contempt of court petition filed by Amina Malik, who heads the Amaan Welfare Foundation.
Notices were issued to PEMRA Chairman Absar Alam and the regulator’s Council of Complaints. They were told to submit all relevant details about the anti-judiciary speeches made by Sharif and PML-N parliamentarians.
PEMRA has been given until September 12 to submit its report.
The court ordered a temporary ban on airing of “anti-judiciary statements” made by Sharif, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, Railways Minister Saad Rafique, and 16 other parliament members.
