Second meeting of PCOMS Steering Committee


PCOMS Steering Committee felt the appointment of special public prosecutor would be helpful in putting pressure on the police for investigating and further processing cases of media attacks. As UNESCO had taken the lead in studying the appointment of such prosecutors in other countries, the Steering committee requested UNESCO Islamabad to prepare a concept paper on how the office of special prosecutor has functioned in other countries, such as Mexico and Colombia. PCOMS could then approach to the provincial governments with details of what would be expected from governments for appointment of special public prosecutor on violence against media.
