Suspension of Geo’s channels calls for a high-level meeting


ISLAMABAD: On Sunday, the Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal expressed his concerns over the putting Geo News and other channels of the organization in parts of Pakistan off-air.

Addressing public through Geo News’ ‘Naya Pakistan’ programme, Iqbal stated that neither Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) nor the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting had issued instructions to suspend the channels.

The minister said that the prime minister had been informed regarding the broadcast suspension.

“A high-level meeting on the suspension of Geo’s channels will be held on Monday,” Iqbal stated.

“If these things are not corrected then questions will be raised on the transparency of the upcoming elections,” he added.
