Lahore High Court bans broadcast of Nawaz Sharif's anti-judiciary speeches for 15 days

The three-member bench ordered Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz to appear in person or via their counsel before the court during the next hearing. Justice also ruled that the court will personally monitor PEMRA's conduct in the next two weeks to see how it implements the court's order.

"Freedom of speech is a fundamental right of every citizen", Barrister Ali Zafar, former president of the Supreme Court Bar Association, told Arab News.
