January 31, World (LNW): A Pakistani court has sentenced former Prime Minister Imran Khan and his wife to 14 years in prison for corruption, according to prison officials.
This follows a separate conviction the previous day in which another special court found Khan guilty of leaking state secrets, resulting in a 10-year prison sentence.
The corruption charges against Khan and his wife involve allegations of retaining and selling state gifts during Khan’s tenure as the country’s premier.
The court’s decision marks a significant legal development for the prominent political figure, known for leading Pakistan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party and serving as the Prime Minister.
These legal proceedings add a layer of complexity to the political landscape, with implications for Khan’s role and influence within Pakistani politics.
The convictions and sentences are subject to legal processes and may have broader ramifications on the political dynamics of the country.
