PTA issued notices over launch of 5G technology in Pakistan
KARACHI - The Sindh High Court (SHC) issued on Monday a notice to the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to file its reply to a petition against launch of 5G technology in Pakistan.
A two-member bench headed by Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar heard the petition. During the hearing, Justice Amjad Ali Sahito, a member of the bench, questioned whether the government has issued a 5G licence? To this, the petitioner answered in the negative.
Issuing a notice to the PTA, the bench observed that the court will proceed with the case after the telecommunication regulator files its response to the petition.
The citizen stated before the court that 5G technology not only poses health risks but also affects ecosystem. He argued 4G technology too poses health risks but is less dangerous than 5G.
