During a hearing on a petition for restoration of the channel’s transmission, the interior ministry and PEMRA failed to present evidence against ARY News before Sindh High Court.

The government counsel sought more time to present arguments. Meanwhile, the SHC extended the injunction on ministry’s notification of cancellation of channel’s no-objection certificate (NOC).

Earlier on August 15, the Sindh High Court directed PEMRA to submit written assurance with regard to resumption of transmission of ARY NEWS after the authority said that it has not suspended the transmission.

During the hearing, the court directed the PEMRA to submit a two-line assurance stating that they have no objection to the transmission of the channel.

It is pertinent to mention here in a new move against the journalist fraternity, the Ministry of Interior cancelled the NOC of ARY News without serving any notice.
