Islamabad High Court has given a big relief to the former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan who is serving 14 years sentence in the controversial Toshakha case in Pakistan. The Islamabad High Court has suspended the 14-year sentence awarded to Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi. Imran Khan has been spared punishment due to the court order, but he and his wife Bushra cannot hold any public office for the next 10 years.

The Islamabad High Court on Monday suspended the 14-year sentence awarded to former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi in the Toshakha case. Pakistan's National Accountability Bureau Court sentenced both of them before the general elections. Just a day later, both were sentenced to seven years of additional imprisonment separately in a marriage-related case.

The special court also pronounced the sentence

Earlier, a special court set up under Pakistan's Official Secrets Act had also sentenced Imran Khan and his government's then Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi to 10 years in prison for violating government secrets. Then, in December, the National Accountability Bureau, abbreviated as NAB, also convicted a special court for keeping a valuable jewelery set from the Saudi crown prince.

Imran Khan and his wife received 108 gifts

The National Accountability Bureau of Islamabad indicted Imran and his wife Bushrabibi. It was alleged that during his tenure as PM, Imran Khan and his wife received 108 gifts from various heads of state and foreign dignitaries. According to the court ruling, Imran Khan and his wife will not be able to hold any public office for 10 years and both will have to pay a fine of 787 million Pakistani rupees separately. Islamabad High Court Chief Justice Amar Farooq said the hearing on the appeal against the sentence would be scheduled after the Eid holidays.
