Orya Maqbool Jaan criticised Pemra Chairman
Orya Maqbool Jaan strongly criticised Pemra’s biased and dubious role. The notice was issued by Justice Noorul Haq Qureshi on a contempt of court application filed by Fareeha Iftikhar and Israr Ahmed Abbasi, two private members of the regulatory authority.
The petition had contended that Rathore was functioning despite the IHC’s June 9 orders. Abbasi and Iftikhar had challenged the appointment of Rathore as acting chairman Pemra and Justice Qureshi on June 9 had ruled that “status quo shall be maintained” until June 17.
Following today’s proceedings, the court issued a contempt notice to Rathore and directed the acting Pemra chairman to personally appear before it and submit a reply on the matter in 10 days’ time.
