Ex-Employees of Bol News are finally hoping for justice after Supreme Court established a court committee for submission and verification of ex-employees.
Supreme Court gave a deadline of one month to complete the process, one week for documentation and 3 weeks to verify the documents.
The board consists of members from Bol Media group and ex-employees known as ‘Bol Mutasireen’. Advocate Shahab and Sami Ibrahim will represent Bol Channel while Advocate Qausain Faisal Mufti, Javeed Iqbal from Islamabad, Lala Nasir from Lahore & Usman Arain from Karachi will represent the ex-employees.
The media group faced several challenges after the Axact Scandal emerged. Though after bail of Shoaib Sheikh and start of operations the channel reemerged but the ex-employees suffered because they were not compensated for their unpaid salaries.
Many renowned journalist and anchorperson who left the channel also accused them for stealing their car paid as compensation and not paying the remaining salaries.
