Pakistan Electronic Media Regularity Authority (PEMRA) suspended broadcasting licence of GEO News for the period of 15 days with immediate effect after a complaint from defence ministry. The decision has been made on Friday 6th June 2014.
In addition to the suspension, PEMRA has also imposed a fine of Rs. 10 million and if not paid within 15 days the suspension will be prolonged.
Some senior journalist has strongly condemned the suspension of GEO license and is of the view that Geo should take legal path over the suspension of its license.
