Former Pakistani prime minister sentenced to three years in jail for corruption | DW News

A trial court in Pakistan has found former Prime Minister Imran Khan guilty of graft and has sentenced him to three years in prison, according to state TV.
“Judge Humayun Dilawar announced that involvement in corrupt practices has been proven,” Pakistan TV said.
The court found him guilty of selling and lying about receiving state gifts worth more than 140 million Pakistani rupees ($635,000), during his tenure as prime minister from 2018 to 2022.
Khan’s lawyer Intazar Hussain told the Reuters news agency that he has been arrested and taken from his residence in the eastern city of Lahore.
According to experts, his conviction in the case could end his chances of standing in national elections that are to be held this year.
