The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan has expressed concern over a decision to declare journalist Ahmed Noorani as a “proclaimed offender” following an earlier complaint lodged against him for allegedly discharging his professional duties.

The organisation urged the Islamabad High Court to take notice and grant relief to the journalist.
