ISLAMABAD: The Federal Information Ministry Thursday wrote to Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) telling them to block transmission of BOL News until investigations into alleged diploma scam by the channel's parent company Axact were completed.
Axact landed into trouble after The New York Times published a story this month claiming the company was involved in selling fake diplomas. “A letter has been sent to PEMRA to stop BOL's transmission on a temporary basis,” Federal Information Secretary Muhammad Azam told DawnNews via telephone.
An FIR was registered against seven individuals including CEO and Chairman of Axact and BOL Shoaib Ahmed Shaikh. The individuals named in the FIR were subsequently arrested and are in FIA remand until June 7.
The channel is scheduled to officially launch its transmission on first of Ramadan.
