Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has petitioned the Islamabad High Court (IHC) to suspend the trial court’s verdict in the Toshakhana case. Last month, the IHC had suspended Imran’s three-year sentence in the same case. The trial court in Islamabad had found Imran guilty of corrupt practices for concealing details of state gifts and sentenced him to three years in prison. However, the Supreme Court later acknowledged procedural defects in his conviction. Following the suspension of his sentence, Imran was detained in the cipher case and has remained in jail on judicial remand. Imran has now moved the IHC against the Toshakhana verdict, seeking the suspension of the operation of the impugned order along with the sentence until the final decision of the appeal. Additionally, Imran’s wife, Bushra Bibi, has approached the IHC seeking protection for her husband, expressing concerns about his safety in jail. During the hearing, the court issued notices to the respondents and adjourned the hearing until next week.
