IHC suspends actions against Secy Info



The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday suspended the terrorism FIRs proceeding against the secretary of information, MD PTV and others in a petition against their harassment.

The bench also conditioned the registration of an FIR against the petitioners with the court’s permis-sion, and served notices to Pakistan Bar Council, Islamabad Bar Council and Advocate General Is-lamabad for assistance in the above case.

Justice Tariq Mehmood Jahangiri remarked that it had to be settled once of all if several FIRs could be registered across the country on one TV program or vlog.

The bench heard the case against the registration of FIR against Secretary Information & Broadcasting Shahera Shahid, Managing Director PTV Sohail Ali Khan and others for on-airing the press conference of Federal Minister Mian Javed Latif.—APP
