KARACHI – The Pakistan Broadcasters Association has said in a statement that any closure of a licensed channel on cable networks without following due course of law is unlawful and violates basic rights given under the constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
Reacting to PEMRA’s notification regarding the closure of licensed channels on cable networks, it said: “PBA members are all PEMRA licensees, and that freedom of speech and the right to information are basic rights guaranteed under the constitution.”
PBA demanded that PEMRA and the government ensure that no lawful licensed channel is taken off the air without following the given procedures under the law.
PBA also demanded that any such violation of its members’ legal rights to broadcast must be immediately addressed.
