The hearing on the federal government’s request for cancellation of bail in the controversial tweet case against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Senator Azam Khan Swati will be held tomorrow (Thursday).
Islamabad High Court Justice Amir Farooq Azam will hear the federal government’s request for cancellation of Swati’s bail.
The federal filed a petition in the Supreme Court through the technical officer of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Anisur Rahman.
In the petition, it was argued that the Special Judge Central exceeded the authority and granted bail to Azam Swati.
The petition further stated that the Special Judge Central had granted bail under other provisions besides PECA 2016.
The petitioner pleaded that the decision of the Special Judge Central be declared illegal and the bail order be revoked.
An application filed by prosecutor Raja Rizwan Abbasi in the Azam Swati case, in which Senator Azam Swati has been made a party, was granted bail by the Special Court 10 days ago.
