Nepal Supreme Court suspends PUBG ban

Nepal’s ban on battle royale shooter Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has been suspended after the Supreme Court found the order to not be reasonable.

Reported by The Himalayan Times, Justice Ishwar Prasad Khatiwada issued the order instructing the Kathmandu District Court to explain what grounds it had to ban the game across the country.

Nepal’s Article 17 warrants freedom of expression with certain instances allowing the government to intervene, however the ban sanctioned on PUBG was found to be a breach of this and therefore could not be justified to continue.
