CPNE opposes bill against Defamation Ordinance
KARACHI – The Secretary General Council of Pakistan Newspaper Editors (CPNE) Dr Jabbar Khattak has strongly opposed the bill presented before the Nation Assembly against Defamation Ordinance of 2002.
He said CPNE had already criticised the Defamation Ordinance of 2002 and called it a black law against press freedom in Pakistan. He said CPNE had called for a dialogue with the government to amend the ordinance.
He demanded this bill should be amended keeping in view the demands for such changes in the bill that press freedom in Pakistan is not violated in any manner.
