Pak SC sets aside orders on prisoner release due to pandemic

Apr 07, 2020 16:15 IST

The Pakistan Supreme Court on Tuesday issued an interim order, recalling the bails granted to under-trial prisoners by the high courts of Sindh and Islamabad and ordered authorities to arrest all detainees who had been released due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Supreme Court's ruling, however, excluded prisoners suffering from a physical or mental illness; under-trial prisoners who are 55 or older; male under-trial prisoners who have not been convicted in the past; and female and juvenile prisoners.
