KARACHI—Governor Sindh Imran Ismail has finally signed nearly a dozen new and amended bills including “the Sindh Protection of Journalists and Other Practitioners Bill-2021,” which were received from the Sindh Law Department.
"Sindh Governor Imran Ismail granted his assent to the Sindh Journalist Protection Bill 2021," Naimat Khan, a correspondent for Arab News and former Joint Secretary Karachi Press Club tweeted.
According to him, the governor had no alternative but to sign it as the bill was passed by the assembly for the second time, dismissing his baseless objections.
The bills encompass the measures that address terms of employment of the workers, employees’ social security, provision of safe transportation facility for women workers, and establishment of an institute for imparting vocal, instrumental music and performing arts training to young people. The amendments bills pertain to restructuring Sindh High Density Development Board and Ziauddin University Examination Board, said a spokesperson for the Governor House.
The spokesman said “Governor Sindh Imran Ismail has always raised voice for the freedom of press and to ensure maximum possible facilities to the fraternity.”
