ISLAMABAD: A special court in the federal capital on Thursday issued a detailed judgement in the controversial tweets case of PTI leader Azam Swati.
The judgement held Mr Swati guilty of running a malicious campaign against the state institutions through his official Twitter account.
The Special Judge Central, in his six-page decision, said the PTI leader also attempted to incite the public against army officers. The decision further said the tweets shared by Mr Swati were retweeted many times by the public and he could face a minimum seven-year jail term or a maximum of life imprisonment.
The judgement said as the PTI leader repeated the offence, his bail application was rejected.
On Wednesday, the court rejected the bail plea of the Senator in the case of the controversial tweet against him. The prosecutor apprised the court that the senator never distanced himself from the account, maintaining that there is no question that the Twitter account is not of the PTI senator.
