During the hearing Pemra was slammed for not taking action on the complaints about airing of anti-judiciary content on the television channels.

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. He pointed out that Article 68 even prevented Parliament from criticising the judiciary and its decisions.

After hearing arguments of the both sides, the bench reserved the verdict for a while and then assembled again and announced it.

Maryam's counsel Amjad Pervez has resumed his cross-examination of Wajid Zia, an additional director at the Federal Investigation Agency who headed the Panama case joint investigation team (JIT) which probed the Sharif family's assets previous year.

In a reference to Lahore High Court's orders to PEMRA against airing his speeches, he said "We will win no matter how much restrictions are placed".
