Imran Khan, Wife Get 14 Years Jail In Corruption Case

Imran Khan, Wife Get 14 Years Jail In Corruption Case

Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and his wife were sentenced to 14 years in jail on Wednesday for corruption involving gifts received during his premiership, just a week before national elections. This verdict followed Khan receiving a 10-year prison sentence the day before for leaking state secrets.

A spokesperson for Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party criticized the judicial system, calling it a sad day. It's unclear if Khan's sentences will run consecutively or concurrently, as he has been in jail since his arrest in August. Khan's lawyer confirmed both he and his wife, Bushra Bibi, received the sentence, although Bushra Bibi remains unarrested. This development adds to the political turbulence in Pakistan ahead of the upcoming elections.
