PEMRA imposes ban on live-telecast of Imran Khan’s speeches

The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) on Saturday imposed a ban on broadcasting live speeches of former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan on all satellite TV channels with immediate effect.

Any channel that violates the PEMRA directions would face legal action, the PEMRA notice said.

According to details, PEMRA has directed all channels to not broadcast live speeches of any participant of the PTI long march. The channels have also been directed to not broadcast any derogatory remarks against institutions.

The PEMRA notice added that despite warnings many channels are not installing transmission delaying mechanisms. Anti-institution statements were telecasted today morning, which is a violation of court rulings, it added.
