Pakistani Court Grants Bail to Exiled Activist's Father

Monday, 25 November 2019 07:39 AM

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — A Pakistani lawyer says a court has granted bail to the father of a prominent activist.

Mohammad Ismail has been held for over a month. His daughter, Gulalai Ismail, fled the country in September to avoid harassment by security agencies. She surfaced last month in the U.S. seeking asylum.

The family supports a rights movement among Pakistan’s minority Pashtun movement that is critical of the army’s war on terror.

Mohammad Ismail’s lawyer, Fazal Khan, says the Peshawar High Court ruled his client would be released Monday evening after paying a bond of 100,000 rupees ($650).

Gulalai Ismail’s parents are facing charges of financing terrorism, which they deny.

Human rights activists in Pakistan are often arrested on suspicion of links with so-called anti-state elements.
