imran-khan

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's former prime minister Iman Khan's sentence has been temporarily suspended. According to reports the Islamabad High Court may order the release of Imran Khan. The trial court in Islamabad sentenced Imran to three years in prison after finding him guilty in the Toshakhana corruption case. He was disqualified from contesting elections for five years and fined Rs.1 lakh.

The case against Imran Khan is that he illegally sold the gifts he received while he was the Prime Minister. The law requires authorities to be notified when accepting such gifts. They can be held if the value is less than a certain amount. Otherwise, they should be transferred to the Toshakhana system. With the suspension of punishment, Imran may be able to contest the elections.
