KARACHI: A statement issued by PBA condemned PEMRA’s order issued today to suspend the license of PBA’s member TV Channel “NEO”.

The statement added that by doing this PEMRA has endangered the livelihood of over 600 workers. On the one hand PEMRA continues to issue fresh licenses to new TV channels, although the existing analogue cable system does not have the capacity to carry more channels and on the other it is suspending licenses of channels already on air.

PBA demands PEMRA withdraw its suspension order and give the Channel a fair and sympathetic hearing.”—PR
