The Punjab government has filed an FIR against the company as well. The petitioner of the media accountability commission and anchorperson Hamid Mir has said that his employers were not exerting any pressure on him nor does he bow to any such pressures.
Talking to Express News, he said that Midas Pvt Ltd had threatened him and now they should be prepared to face the reply which will be “hard”.
Absar Alam said that the opponents casted many blames and allegations on him and Mir. “We were made targets of character assassination,” he claimed.
Talking to Express News, reporter Asad Kharal said, “We have raised the issue of heavy funding to some journalists from secret funds so that the people are not misled by companies like Midas Pvt Ltd.
“The Punjab government has filed an FIR against the company as well. Because this agency is doing business with federal and provincial governments and has embezzled over Rs1 billion, the court will look into these matters thoroughly.”
