ISLAMABAD Nov 30, Supreme Court of Pakistan orders release of National Assembly member Ali Wazir on bail.
A three-member bench of the apex court headed by Justice Sardar Tariq Masood heard the case.
The court also ordered National Assembly member Ali Wazir to submit bail bond of Rs 4,00,000.
The Supreme Court of Pakistan declared that the co-accused along with Ali Wazir had been released, therefore there was no justification for keeping Ali Wazir in jail.
A three-judge bench, headed by Justice Sardar Tariq Masood and comprising Justice Jamal Mandokhail and Justice Aminuddin Khan heard Wazir’s appeal against the Sindh High Court’s (SHC) judgement earlier this year that had dismissed his bail application.
MNA Wazir was arrested on the charges of making insulting and incendiary speeches against state institutions at a PTM protest rally in Karachi on December 6, 2020. An FIR was lodged against him the following day at Karachi’s Sohrab Goth police station.
It should be noted that Ali Wazir, a member of the National Assembly, was arrested on December 16, 2020.
