ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) Thursday issued a show cause notice to Neo TV for running a wrong photo while announcing the death of former Chief Justice of Pakistan Sajjad Ali Shah.
The channel ran a picture of the current Chief Justice of Sindh High Court instead of showing an image of the deceased CJP.
The broadcasting blunder “caused great psychological and mental stress to the families of the former Chief Justice of Pakistan and the present Chief Justice of Sindh High Court,” PEMRA said.
After the wrong image was flashed, the registrar of Sindh High Court filed an official complaint with PEMRA seeking action against the channel.
The regulator has asked Neo to submit a reply within four days.
