The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Thursday ruled that there should be no further cases filed in the province against Senator Azam Swati regarding the issue of the contentious tweets. He was later shifted to Islamabad by the police.
Inspector General of Sindh Police Ghulam Nabi Memon apologized to the court at the beginning of the session for his remarks made during the prior appearance.
The SHC was also informed by Sindh Prosecutor General Faiz Shah that Islamabad Police had been given custody of Swati. Additionally, he stated that the senator has been charged in “C class” cases.
The government attorney stated that all applications were previously ineffective and added that the cases were filed by private citizens.
Justice Karim Khan Agha praised the IG Memon and the Sindh government for handling the “issue” at this point.
The court subsequently ordered that Azam Swati not be the subject of any more FIRs in the case. Additionally, it stated that Swati was the subject of many cases in various parts of the province stemming from a single charge.
The court further ordered that the C class report be delivered to the relevant courts in three days.
According to local media reports, Swati has moved to Islamabad and been placed in the custody of the police. They claimed that the senator was flown from Sukkur to the capital on a special aircraft.
