Pakistan's Supreme Court ordered the release on bail on Wednesday of a Red Mosque cleric who has been detained since 2007, a lawyer said.
Soldiers stormed Red Mosque complex in 2007, killing more than 100 people.
The mosque had for years hold demonstraitons in the heart of the capital with links to Pakistani Taliban strongholds in the northwest of the country near the Afghan border.
"He has been granted bail ... charges have not been dropped, as yet," said Shaukat Siddiqui, a lawyer for cleric Abdul Aziz.
Aziz has been kept under house arrest on the outskirts of Islamabad.
Siddiqui said Aziz would be released after posting 200,000 rupees ($2,500) bail in a court.
There were 27 cases against him. Bail had been granted earlier in 25 of them and one had been dropped, Siddiqui said.
