Lawyer Amjad Pervaiz will continue cross-examination of Panama JIT head Wajid Zia
The bench, comprising Justice Sayyed Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi, Justice Atir Mahmood and Justice Chaudhary Mohammad Masood Jahangir, announced the verdict after hearing arguments of lawyers from both sides.
PEMRA's counsel told that the authority gave a verdict but the judge said that the petition was later dismissed by PEMRA on technical grounds.
Subsequently, the court directed PEMRA to strictly monitor the speeches.
He drew the attention to Article 68, saying it even prevented the Parliament from criticising the judiciary and its decisions. "The Pemra may have been made a minor error [of judgment] by rejecting the application", the counsel responded.
The petitioner said PEMRA did not block these hateful and ridiculing remarks passed against the judiciary.
Maryam in her address had said: "The SC judges had asked Imran Khan (cricketer-turned-politician and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman) to file a petition so that they could oust Nawaz Sharif as he (Khan) had failed to make that happen through protest movement".
"If they are not stopped they will continue attacking the judiciary, ? the petitioner said, requesting the court to initiate contempt of court proceedings against the respondents under the Contempt of Court Ordinance, 2003, read with Article 204 of the Constitution".
On Monday, a larger bench of the LHC ordered Pemra to stop television channels from airing anti-judiciary speeches by Sharif, his daughter and other party leaders.
Nawaz and Maryam did not attend the last two hearings of the case as they were unable to depart from Lahore due to weather condition.
According to media reports, MNA Hamza Shahbaz and Maryam Nawaz also joined the meeting which discussed the restriction imposed by the Lahore High Court on the telecast of PML-N leaders' derogatory speeches.
"So the court's decision is correct, but it will still be hard to implement".
It was discussed how much the decision will impact the PML-N movement with the motto "vote ko izzat do" in near future.
