The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) issued on Thursday a stern warning to television channel ARY Digital, proscribing it from airing any advertisement or commercial prohibited by the regulatory watchdog.
The watchdog on July 15 had issued a show cause notice to the network for defying its order of not airing of an IGLOO advertisement.
