SHC declares Pemra chief’s powers sans rules as illegal
The Sindh High Court on Friday heard a case regarding the suspension of TV channels’ licences by the PEMRA chief.
The Pakistan Broadcasting Association submitted a petition against the powers of the media regulatory body’s chairman to Sindh High Court.
The decision was announced by a two-member bench of the high court headed by Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar.
The court pronounced that without making rules, the PEMRA chairman could not invoke Section 13.
The broadcasting association has challenged the PEMRA chief’s April 24, 2020 decision.
