The Islamabad High Court (IHC) granted temporary relief to former Prime Minister Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi on Monday by suspending their 14-year sentence in the Toshakhana corruption case. The case, revolving around alleged corruption in state gifts received from the state depository, had led to their conviction by an Islamabad accountability court on January 31.

The couple challenged the conviction in the Islamabad High Court, where a two-member bench headed by IHC Chief Justice Aamer Farooq heard their case. The court decided to suspend their sentences and granted them bail in the case. However, it was announced that their appeals against the conviction would be heard after the Eid festival next month.

This development comes amid political tensions and speculations, particularly ahead of the general elections. The suspension of their sentences has sparked mixed reactions, with some questioning the judiciary’s decision while others viewing it as a relief for the former prime minister and his wife.

As the legal proceedings continue, the fate of Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi in the Toshakhana corruption case remains uncertain.
