LHC suspends PEMRA order on Channel 24 ban

The Lahore High Court has suspended the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority’s (PEMA) order banning Channel 24 on Monday.

During the hearing, the lawyer for PEMRA stated that the order to ban the channel was issued by the competent authority.

However, the bench asked the lawyer if the competent authority was bigger than the court.

“Meeting minutes should be presented tomorrow, then the court will decide [on the matter],” said the LHC.

LHC’s Justice Sajid Mahmood issued the order to lift the ban and adjourned the hearing of the case till Wednesday and asked the regulator to submit its reply in the case.
