The Islamabad High Court on Monday wrapped up a plea against a ban on live telecast of PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s speeches and directed PEMRA to act as per the guidelines of the Supreme Court in this regard.

During a hearing, led by Chief Justice IHC Athar Minallah, PEMRA’s counsel said that the purpose of issuing show-cause was to ensure a delay in live broadcast of speeches. “Our direction was not for a particular person,” the counsel said.

The chief justice during the hearing said that the PEMRA should act according to the rules and the court would not intervene in its operations.

“Are you satisfied with the last order of the court,” the chief justice asked and on getting an affirmative reply, he wrapped up the case.
