Former Pakistan PM Imran Khan Arrested, Disqualified In Toshakhana Corruption Case
Islamabad, August 5 (TNA) Imran Khan, the ex-Prime Minister of Pakistan, was on Saturday sentenced to three years in prison and disqualified from politics for five years after a trial court found him guilty in the Toshakhana corruption case. The court imposed a fine of Rs100,000 on Khan, who was indicted on May 10 for concealing details of state gifts.
The Toshakhana issue, related to the sale of gifts received by Khan, became a major political concern leading to his disqualification in October 2022. The Toshakhana is a department that stores gifts given to government officials by foreign dignitaries.
Khan bought some gifts, including a precious watch, and sold them for profit. The recent conviction could impact his chances in upcoming national elections scheduled before early November.
