PEMRA issues show-cause notice to ARY News

ISLAMABAD, (Pakistan Point News - APP - 07th Nov, 2016 ) : Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority on Monday issued a show cause notice to ARY News for telecasting comments based on hearsay, trying to spread fear and apparently attempting to influence the cases in the Supreme Court. The PEMRA has given seven days to the management of ARY News for filing a reply. PEMRA can impose Rs 1 million fine, suspend the licence of the channel or even cancel its licence under Section 30, a PEMRA press release said.
