The Islamabad Excessive Court docket granted an enchantment to former Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday, suspending his 14-year sentence for the conviction on graft expenses, in line with a statement from his political get together, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

The enchantment pertains to the Toshakhana corruption case, during which Khan was accused of promoting state presents. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf get together has persistently maintained that the fees in opposition to Khan had been baseless and expressed confidence that justice can be served in greater courts.

Zulfiqar Bukhari, the spokesperson for Khan’s get together, stated, “We had at all times maintained that each one these expenses are frivolous and as they go up the ladder into greater courts justice can be served and all instances can be annulled. Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi had by no means completed something unlawful within the Toshakhana case. Quite those that stole automobiles are PM’s and Presidents right now.”

Naeem Haider Panjutha, the spokesman to Imran Khan on Authorized Affairs, additionally congratulated the nation on suspending the sentence within the Toshakhana case.

In March 2022, opposition events removed Khan from workplace via a vote of no confidence in Parliament. Regardless of the suspension, Khan will stay in jail on account of different convictions. In February, Khan appealed his convictions in three instances, the opposite two being the “cypher” case associated to leaked diplomatic cables and a case involving the violation of a three-month ready interval for marriage.

The judicial proceedings in Khan’s instances have just lately been scrutinized. On March 25, six judges from the Islamabad Excessive Court docket wrote a letter to the Supreme Judicial Council alleging interference by Pakistan’s highly effective intelligence businesses within the judiciary’s functioning.

In response to a statement on Khan’s X (previously Twitter), most of his instances are dealt with by the Islamabad Excessive Court docket and its subordinate courts. Nonetheless, the considerations that these courts face undue stress and interference forged doubt on the equity of the judicial proceedings. In consequence, the Supreme Judicial Council should provoke an unbiased investigation into these severe allegations.
