ISLAMABAD – The Lahore High Court has granted stay to Channel 24 over a week-long seven-hour daily ban on its transmission imposed by Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA).
The watchdog announced slapping the ban last week after the channel aired a fake audio clip of passengers on board Flight PK 661 that crashed in Havelian on December 7.
The erring channel was also fined Rs1million after it failed to furnish proof of the audio clip’s authenticity.
The ban was to come into effect from December 27.
