PM orders release of women in jail on flimsy grounds

ISLAMABAD: In light of the Supreme Court’s (SC) orders, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday directed the relevant authorities to make arrangements for the early release of female prisoners — both under-trial and convicted.

According to the Prime Minister Office (PMO), Mr Khan announced the decision at a meeting and later in his tweets.

A source in the PMO told Dawn that it was brought to the notice of the prime minister that a large number of women prisoners were facing imprisonment only because they were unable to pay petty fines.

The prime minister vowed that the government would bear all expenses for the release of women prisoners whose remaining sentence was less than three years and they were serving imprisonment due to non-payment of petty fines, the source added.
