Azam Swati

A day after securing bail in the controversial tweets case, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Senator Azam Swati on Tuesday was finally allowed to walk free.

Azam Swati could not be released on Monday due to the unavailability of a written order from the Islamabad High Court (IHC) pertaining to his bail. The bail was accepted against the surety bonds of Rs200,000.

As Swati’s counsels presented the receipt regarding the surety bonds and the copy of the ruling in the court of Special Judge Central, the judge issued the release orders.
