The PEMRA statement clarified that there is also a ban on publishing material related to possible outcomes of pending cases.
It may be recalled that today the Accountability Court Islamabad has issued an order to foreclose on vehicles and bank accounts including Nawaz Sharif’s non-appearance in the Tosha Khana reference.
Earlier, the Islamabad High Court had also issued a non-bailable arrest warrant for Nawaz Sharif and directed the government to implement the court order from the British High Commission.
On the other hand, the government has decided to write a letter to the British government once again for Nawaz Sharif’s repatriation. In this regard, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) have been assigned an important task.
It may be recalled that a day ago, a meeting of the Federal Cabinet was held under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Imran Khan in which it was decided in principle to bring Nawaz Sharif back home in any case.
Talking to the participants of the meeting, the Prime Minister said that all legal means would be used to bring back Nawaz Sharif as he had fled the country on the pretext of illness. Nawaz Sharif will have to return home and appear before the courts. In no case will NRO be granted and no one will be forgiven for corruption.
Note that the Islamabad High Court had on September 15 issued a non-bailable arrest warrant for Nawaz Sharif in the Azizia reference.
