PEMRA bans live, recorded coverage of Islamabad rallies

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) prohibited live and recorded coverage of rallies and public gatherings in Islamabad on Monday, just days before former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s court appearance in the federal capital.

PEMRA has issued a notification stating that the ban has been extended to cover public meetings and rallies in the Islamabad area on March 27.

The notification stated that the license of satellite TV channels would be revoked if the instructions were not followed.

According to the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority, live broadcasts of violent mobs and attacks on law enforcement agencies caused chaos and panic.

Imran Khan, chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and a former prime minister left for Islamabad today to appear before an Islamabad court to seek interim bail in five cases involving vandalism in the judicial complex.

The decision was made at a meeting presided over by Imran Khan himself, during which he discussed the matter with the party’s leadership and legal team.
