LHC orders to ban airing contemptuous speeches of Nawaz, Maryam and others
Published at: 3 month(s) ago


Lahore: The Lahore High Court (LHC) ordered on Monday a temporary ban on the airing of contemptuous speeches by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and other party leaders.

While hearing over two dozen petitions filed against 'anti-judiciary' speeches by Nawaz, Maryam, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and other party leaders, the court ordered the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) ordered to decide on the petitions in 15 days and until that time refrain from airing any contemptuous remarks.

Justice Mazahir Ali Naqvi, who headed a three-member full bench, also ruled that the court will personally monitor PEMRA's conduct in the next two weeks to see how it implements the court's order.

The petitions, which seek a ban on the anti-judiciary speeches, will now be decided by PEMRA.
