Imran Khan Appears Virtually Before Pakistan Supreme Court

Imran Khan, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, appeared virtually before the country’s Supreme Court from his jail cell on Thursday.

Khan’s official X  account shared photos of his appearance, noting it had been 285 days since his last court hearing.

Reportedly, Imran Khan participated via video link to discuss amendments to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) law. This marked his first appearance in the Supreme Court since his arrest in August and subsequent conviction in the Toshakhana case. His political party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), expressed concerns about a ban on visitors at Adiala jail, where Khan is held, suspecting it was designed to hinder his Supreme Court appearance.

Recently, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) granted Imran Khan bail in a case involving £190 million, stating further investigation was needed into the allegations. The NAB accused Khan’s 2019 cabinet of approving the transfer of £190 million repatriated by the UK’s National Crime Agency to the Supreme Court for Bahria Town’s liability payment. The IHC questioned the transparency of this transaction and recommended a thorough examination by the trial court.

The Islamabad High Court suspended Imran Khan’s 14-year sentence for graft charges in the Toshakhana case, in April, where he was accused of selling state gifts.

PTI argued that the charges were unfounded and welcomed the suspension. However, Imran Khan remained incarcerated due to other convictions, including the “cypher” case and violation of marriage laws, which his legal team had appealed.

Currently, Khan faces multiple corruption charges and has been in jail since August.
