PEMRA orders restoration of news channels

26 Novembre 2017

PEMRA, in a letter, drew the attention of the satellite TV channel licensees to the Electronic Media (Programmes and Advertisements) Code of Conduct 2015, which prohibits live coverage of any security operation.

Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) on Sunday withdrew its orders it passed on Saturday for shutting down transmissions of private television channels as the situation deteriorated in the Federal Capital where the law enforcement agencies (LEAs) struggled to disperse the sit-in protesters at Faizabad.

Furthermore, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) was ordered to block popular social media networking sites Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and video-sharing websites YouTube and Dailymotion.

Many Pakistanis exclusively rely on private channels and social media platform for acquiring needed information and updates relating country and on-going events.

"Under the Electronic Media Code of Conduct, 2015, the live coverage of any security operation is prohibited", it had said. PEMRA chairman has also received a notification from the Ministry of Information, and distribution networks have been ordered to restore news channels to their original position.

In a statement, she said the transmission of the news channels was suspended after through deliberations in the best interest of the country to keep law and order situation under control.

The social media platforms are not completely unblocked in all areas and it is likely that the service will soon be restored in full with the passage of time. Some users say the social media "blackout" is restricting people from their right to information.
