LAHORE – The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Wednesday served a notice on the Jang Group for terminating hundreds of employees without fulfilling the required formalities.
A group of journalists protested in front of the court’s Lahore Registry calling on the Chief Justice of Pakistan to order reinstatement of sacked staffers.
Their protest led to one of them being called inside by the chief justice to know what the issue was.
Subsequently, a notice was issued to the Jang management to appear before the Supreme Court in Islamabad.
The media group recently laid-off hundreds of staffers from different cities while also shutting down some of its publications including Waqt, Inqilab, Awam, Daily News, and Jang Peshawar and Faisalabad.
