IHC suspends Imran Khan’s sentence in Toshakhana case

Canada Global (Web News) The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s sentence imposed on him in the Toshakhana case was stayed on Tuesday by the Islamabad High Court (IHC).

The IHC made public the brief decision it had reserved a day earlier ordering the authorities to grant the PTI leader bail.

The court declared that the specifics of the sentence suspension would be included in the comprehensive decision that would be delivered later.

Sources claim that the PTI leader has been instructed to provide a Rs. 100,000 surety bond in lieu of the bail.

The decision is a significant success for Khan in his legal battle against his conviction and sentence imposed in the Toshakhana case.

Khan was found guilty of corrupt practises related to the state gift repository earlier this month, and a district and sessions court in the federal capital sentenced him to three years in prison and assessed a fine of Rs100,000 as punishment. This decision disqualified Khan from running in the upcoming elections.

Immediately following the trial court’s decision on August 5, the former prime minister—who has been barred from holding any public office as a result of the conviction—was detained and has since been held at Attock prison.
