Govt challenges restoration of PEMRA chief

15 January, 2014

ISLAMABAD: The government on Monday filed an intra-court appeal in the Islamabad High Court requesting it to set aside the decision of the single-member bench that restored Chaudhry Rasheed as Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority chairman.

On December 16, the single-member bench headed by Justice Riaz Ahmed had ordered the restoration of Chaudhry Rasheed Ahmed, suspending a notification issued by the Establishment Division for his removal from the post. In the appeal, the federation opined that Chaudhry Rasheed had not come to the court with clean hands and had concealed facts.

It was contended that the PEMRA chairman was removed on December 16 through a notification, and a petition was drafted, filed and fixed on the same day. The federation pointed out that the petitioner had not even attached the notification of his removal along with the petition.

The government pleaded that Chaudhry Rasheed was guilty of misconduct, as he had himself moved the summary of PEMRA chairman's appointment.
