Lahore High Court (LHC) has on Monday set aside the notification of Absar Alam’s appointment as Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) chairman, removing him from the position. Hearing the case, Justice Shahid Karim set aside the notification of Absar Alam’s appointment. Earlier, PEMRA’s lawyer Ali Gillani had demanded time for providing the court with the record of Absar Alam’s notification but the judge had rejected the plea. Justice Shahid Karim had remarked that the case was being heard for the last 18 months and yet the record had not been submitted before the court, reserving his decision in the case.

PEMRA’s lawyer told the court that Absar Alam had a vast experience of working at various news channels and paid heavy taxes against his income. Meanwhile, the petitioner Munir Ahmad’s lawyer pointed at the irregularities in Absar Alam’s appointment as the chairman of the media regulatory body. Azhar Siddique pleaded before the court that the appointment was in violation of the laws and that Absar Alam had failed to fulfil his duty as the chairman of the authority. After hearing the arguments from both sides, the court ordered Absar Alam’s removal from the position, declaring setting aside the notification of his appointment.
