Tribune may sue Statesman

Tribune may sue Statesman JournalismPakistan.com

PESHAWAR: The Express Tribune plans to serve a legal notice on The Statesman for plagiarizing their content.

The Statesman, a daily from Peshawar run by the Mashriq Group of Newspapers, reproduced a story originally published by The Express Tribune on June 22.

The Tribune story titled “Ephedrine case: PHC grants 7-day protective bail to Shahbuddin’ was filed by Umer Farooq, the newspaper’s Peshawar correspondent. It first went up on tribune.com.pk.
(http://tribune.com.pk/story/397673/ephedrine-case-phc-grants-7-day-protective-bail-to-shahabuddin/)

However, much to everyone’s surprise, The Statesman reproduced that story under the byline of their reporter Rahimullah Shah. (http://www.statesman.com.pk/city/more.htm)

Those in the know of this development tell JournalismPakistan.com the Tribune Editor Kamal Siddiqui has been informed of this matter and initiating legal action is being considered.
