ISLAMABAD: PTI leader Senator Azam Khan Swati stated on Tuesday that he was brought to an undisclosed location after being detained and recorded there.
Swati praised Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial for checking into his detention by the Federal Investigation Authority (FIA) in a case involving “controversial” tweets during a news conference in Islamabad.
The PTI leader brought up FIA’s detention last month in an attempt to get the Supreme Court to take notice of the situation.
After filing a case against him over tweets critical of the army commander, the senator was arrested on October 13 by the FIA’s Cybercrime Wing (CCW) at his house in Islamabad.
However, he was granted post-arrest release last week in exchange for surety bonds totaling Rs. 1 million.
Swati said that during the arrest, priceless valuables were removed from his home.
I don’t care if they killed me, but they degraded my honor, he continued.
The PTI leader formally requested that the Supreme Court examine the surveillance footage from his house’s surrounding area. In order for the court to know how many persons entered his home, he suggested that they should be submitted for a forensic study.
He went on to state that half of the evidence in his case was captured on video by the CCTV cameras. He said, “They brought backup CCTV cameras, too.”
