Former Prime Minister Imran Khan appeared in an Islamabad court on Thursday after being charged under Pakistan's antiterrorism act in relation to a speech.
He has been granted "interim bail" until September 1, according to officials from his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party.
This development is the latest in months of political tensions following Khan's ousting from power in April.
Supporters of Khan fear that the latest charges brought against him may lead to further violence.
However, the Reuters report suggests that Khan maintains that he said "nothing wrong in the speech last week."
The former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has been granted "interim bail" until September 1 after appearing in an antiterrorism court in Islamabad to face charges relating to a speech made earlier this month.
Khan was accused of issuing a threat during the speech, in which he discussed the detention of a top aide on sedition charges.
Following the speech, police filed charges against Khan, a move seen as part of an escalating campaign against him and his allies since he was removed from office in April of this year.
The hearing on Thursday was the former cricket star's first court appearance since he was charged on Sunday.
While officials from Khan's PTI party have described Khan's charges as an attempt to score "a technical knockout" against him, Pakistani authorities insist that they are necessary to maintain law and order.
Political tensions in Pakistan have been running high since Khan's dismissal.
He retains widespread support, however, with observers suggesting that he could be a potential challenger to the current Prime Minister, Shehbaz Sharif, at forthcoming elections.
