Mali’s interim parliament vice-president has been freed, weeks after he was arrested for public order offences.
Issa Kaou N’Djim was arrested in October and a ruling on his case is expected in December.
He was accused of making “subversive remarks”, which were not disclosed.
N’Djim is a supporter of Mali’s President Assimi Goïta but is a critic of Interim Prime Minister Choguel Kokalla Maïga.
His lawyers had said his detention was illegal because of a parliamentary immunity.
Parliament later passed a resolution calling for the halting of the case.
