Pakistani Court Suspends Imran Khan’s Corruption Sentence, But Ex-PM Remains Jailed in Separate Case

HeadlineAug 30, 2023

In Pakistan, an appeals court on Tuesday suspended former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s three-year prison sentence and conviction on corruption charges. If the court decides to set aside Khan’s conviction, he’ll be allowed to run for office in elections scheduled for November. Despite being granted bail, Khan will remain in detention, at least for now, over another criminal case involving the leak of classified information. Dozens of charges were brought against Khan since he was removed from office in a no-confidence vote in April of last year. Khan has denounced the charges as politically motivated.
