IHC Suspends Pemra’s Ban on Imran’s Live Speeches

The ban on the live broadcast of speeches by PTI Chairman Imran Khan placed by the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) was suspended by the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday.

After reviewing an application submitted by the former prime minister today, IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah noted that the watchdog had “exceeded its power” and ordered Pemra to appoint an officer who could explain the ban in court.

On August 20, Imran warned the judiciary against its “biased” attitude and advised the judge who placed Mr. Gill in physical detention to prepare for repercussions while speaking at a rally in Islamabad to show support for party leader Dr. Shahbaz Gill, who is being investigated for sedition.

Imran’s speeches were subsequently prohibited from being aired live on television, and a case was also filed against him.
