SHC approves Malik's pre-arrest bail


Express May 18, 2010

KARACHI:

The Sindh High Court (SHC) approved the pre-arrest bail of Interior Minister Rehman Malik.


The one week protective bail will keep Malik from being arrested in the light of Lahore High Court's upholding his sentence in two NAB references.


The interior minister arrived at the Sindh High Court amid tight security. He was awarded the protective bail by Justice Ameer Hani Muslim after paying Rs100,000 as bond.


Malik told the bench that he needed a one-week protective bail so that he could attend a court hearing in Rawalpindi.


President Asif Ali Zardari has already granted remission to him in all his cases under Article 45 of the Constitution.

In a supposedly " Islamic Republic" the ruler should not have any powers to safe an accused esp. in case of corruption. Long live the sheeps & lambs of Pakistan. We indeed bring it up on ourselves by electing the corrupt!
