Supreme Court grants bail to PTM Leader Ali Wazir in hate speech case

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan Tuesday ordered the release of MNA and PTM Leader Ali Wazir on bail.

The Supreme Court bench, which had transferred the bail plea of Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) leader Mohammad Ali Wazir to another bench, heard the same appeal and granted bail to Wazir.

The Waziristan lawmaker has been directed to deposit surety bonds worth Rs400,000.

Ali Wazir was arrested on charges of issuing statements against state institutions during a speech on December 16, 2020. The FIR against the MNA was registered at a Karachi police station.
