Former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan filed a contempt court plea in Lahore High Court against Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) over ban on his speeches.
According to details, the plea was filed against PEMRA by Barrister Ahmad Pansota on behalf of PTI chief Imran Khan.
The plea stated that despite the suspension of PEMRA ban from LHC, the TV channels are pressurized to not broadcasted PTI chief Imran Khan’s speeches.
PEMRA is violating the court orders and chairman PEMRA should be summoned in personal capacity, the plea stated.
Earlier, the Lahore High Court (LHC) suspended the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority’s (PEMRA) notification banning the live speeches and press talks of former prime minister Imran Khan.
Remember that Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) had imposed a ban on broadcasting ‘live and recorded’ speeches and press conferences of former prime minister Imran Khan on all satellite TV channels with immediate effect.
The authority said that after analyzing the content of Imran’s speech, it has been observed that the content was aired live by the licensees without effective time delay mechanism which is a violation provision of Pemra laws and in disobedience of judgements passed by the courts.
