Pemra gets chance to file reply to Imran’s petition
LAHORE: The Lahore High Court on Tuesday allowed an opportunity to the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) to submit a reply to a contempt petition of PTI Chairman Imran Khan questioning alleged violation of a stay order against ban on coverage of his speeches.
A law officer appeared before the court and stated that a reply of the Pemra had been received but could not be filed due to paucity of time. He sought time to submit the reply.
However, the law officer pointed out that the Pemra, in its reply, denied the claim of the petitioner regarding violation of the court order.
Justice Shams Mahmood Mirza adjourned the hearing for a week.
