The Islamabad High Court has suspended the conviction and three-year sentence of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in the Toshakhana case. Imran Khan, who is currently in Attock jail, had filed a petition seeking directives to prevent further arrest in any case filed against him after August 5. The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) opposed the suspension of Imran’s jail sentence, citing various laws and past court verdicts. The IHC will announce the verdict on Tuesday. In August, Imran was arrested after being found guilty in the Toshakhana case. He expressed dissatisfaction over the judgement and argued that it had been passed without proper opportunity of hearing. Last year, Imran was disqualified from his parliamentary membership for providing false information in his statement of assets and liabilities. The Toshakhana is a department that stores precious gifts given to officials by foreign dignitaries. Lawmakers alleged that Imran had not shared details of the gifts he retained from the Toshakhana.
