- Islamabad High Court temporarily suspends corruption conviction of ex-PM Imran Khan.
- Khan sentenced to prison for selling state gifts during his 2018-2022 tenure.
- Imran Khan faces election ban; multiple legal cases post-no-confidence removal.
A two-judge panel of the Islamabad High Court has temporarily suspended the recent corruption conviction of former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Following his sentencing to three years in prison on August 5 for selling state gifts without authorization during his prime ministerial tenure from 2018 to 2022, Khan had been in custody.
The conviction also led to a five-year ban on Khan’s participation in elections, as imposed by the nation’s election commission.
Imran Khan, once a cricketer and now a politician, has encountered over 100 legal cases after his removal via a no-confidence vote in April 2022. Currently, he remains imprisoned in the northwest city of Attock.
