Court kicks out Geo’s case against Mubasher Lucman
Karachi: The Sindh High Court has excluded a case from Geo TV against senior anchor Mubasher Lucman and ARY group of media.
According to the reports, Geo had sued the eminent senior anchor and investigative journalist Mubasher Lucman and singer Ali Azmat for defaming it, but the court on interpreting the case as baseless, excluded the case and also fined Geo TV 50,000 rupees for wasting the precious time of the court.
The defamation case was filed against ARY and Mubasher Lucman but after the the concrete evidences presented by Barrister Waleed Khanzada, the court excluded the case and fined the Geo TV.
It may be recalled that Geo Network, since the last few years, has initiated a smear campaign against Mubashar Lucman for exposing Geo and its owners’ malpractices.
Journalistic circles, civil society and general public at large, view this latest court decision as yet another vindication of the principled stand of the upright investigative journalist Mubashar Lucman.
