Pakistani Twitterati tweeted their critiques as news of US national Raymond Davis' release was confirmed by Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah on Wednesday.

Davis was the accused in the double-murder shooting case in Lahore and was acquitted by the court as the families of the victims reportedly pardoned Davis after signing pardon papers in this regard.

Here's the Twitter buzz:

Najam Sethi

As predicted, Davis has been freed on application of Kissas and Diyat law. CM Shahbaz played key secret role.

Nadeem F Paracha

This is what happens when a 'successful' media trial falls flat in the court of law.

Bina Shah

Wonder if there will be any street reaction to this, or if everyone's just going to shut up and eat it.

Sami Shah

Never have so many liberals and conservatives been in such righteous agreement. Twitter and FB melting down.

The only acceptable follow up story would be that he converted to islam just before leaving.

Fatima Bhutto

Even for the Zardari govt, that was a remarkably quick acquittal#raymonddaviswinning

Saba Imtiaz

New reality show: Raymond ne Pakistan kyun chora?

Marvi Memon

Ayesha Tammy Haq

Razarumi

I guess GHQ maxed out that platinum ghairat card that Papa Jinnah gave us. Hope Ray Ray has a comfortable flight.
