    Salman Butt released early from prison

    So Buttocks has been released early due to being a foreign national. Fair decision?

    Asif is still here appealing his ban so I think it's only if you are released before the bare minimum length.

    Ah, Amir been a young offender probably releases him from that anyway although I think he served the minimum.

    You won't find many on here who are more inclined towards wishy washy liberalism than I am but I can't help feeling this makes a mockery of a system that was, slightly to my surprise I am embarassed to say, robust enough to sentence him to 30 months in the first place.

    Now if he had to serve the balance of his time in a Pakistani jail, or even just some of it, then I'd probably take a different view ............

    I really don't see the point of sentencing him for 30 months then releasing him early.

    it would have been nice to have him in a pakistani prison with the general inmates.

    He might have gotten sodomized in prison though. Punishment enough I would think
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    News of his return might be overshadowed by the constitutional crisis on currently. He got lucky, IMO.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Disgraceful decision to let him out early. Should have served the full sentence in my view. Hopefully he will never play cricket again.

    Looking at his comments after coming back it doesn't seem like he has grown any sense during his time in jail.

    Eh? This seems to be a pretty open and shut use of the (English) early release system... I certainly wouldn't want to pay taxes for him to live in an Australian prison.

    Butt is a non dangerous criminal and hence I see no problem with his early release. Prison as a punitive measure is poor use of public funds. Fwiw you also do the same thing with drug mules for example, I hardly think Butt's case is any worse.

    Eta: This is NOT endorsement of him being able to return to cricket in any way.
