Imaan Mazari released from jail
ISLAMABAD – Imaan Mazari, a prominent human rights activist and lawyer, was released from jail on Saturday after an anti-terrorism court granted her bail.
This decision followed a three-day period in police custody due to her alleged involvement in a terrorism-related case.
Imaan Mazari and Ali Wazir had been apprehended on August 20th for publicly criticising the state institutions during a rally. Their arrest drew significant attention to what human rights organizations perceive as an increasing crackdown on politicians and activists in Pakistan.
Both individuals faced charges of sedition, hindering government officials in the performance of their duties, and causing damage to public property.
