Pakistan Court Suspends Former PM Imran Khan’s Corruption Sentence

Pakistan Court Suspends Former PM Imran Khan's Corruption Sentence

A Pakistan High Court has suspended the corruption sentence of former Prime Minister, Imran Khan. The court gave him bail till his appeal over his condition. 

Mr Khan’s lawyers say more than 100 charges have been brought against him since his removal from power last year. They include leaking state secrets and organizing violent protests. 

Khan was sentenced to three years in jail on 5 August for not declaring money earned from selling gifts he received during his time in office from 2018-2022.

The gifts – reported to be worth more than 140m Pakistani rupees ($635,000; £500,000) – included Rolex watches, a ring, and a pair of cuff links.

In the appeal which has led to the suspension of his sentence, Mr Khan’s lawyers argue that he was convicted without being able to defend himself.

Mr Khan is currently being held in Attock jail, a small facility in Punjab province with historical ties to the military, about 85km (52 miles) from the capital Islamabad.

On 9 May, Mr Khan was arrested for not appearing in court as requested. He was released three days later, with the arrest ruled illegal.

The prosecution and opposition have repeatedly accused the judges who gave Imran Khan relief of being politically inspired.
