Hussain, whose death sentence was commuted by President Pervez Musharraf, on 16 November, was freed from the jail on 17 November, ending his 18-year fight for justice. Hussain's penalty for allegedly killing a taxi driver in 1988 was commuted to life imprisonment following appeals by Britain's Prince Charles and Prime Minister Tony Blair.
