Ex-Pakistan Prime Minister To Remain Free Until Next Week

Ex-Pakistan Prime Minister To Remain Free Until Next Week

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan is to remain free from jail until next week, a court ordered on Friday.

Khan was dismissed by a no-confidence vote in Parliament in April of last year.

Since then, the former cricket star turned politician, has been charged with more than 100 legal cases, including graft while holding public office.

The Lahore High Court's decision provided Khan with yet another mercy on Friday.

The court's ruling effectively bans his arrest until March 27 due to allegations that he incited his party supporters to unrest after he skipped court in the capital Islamabad.

This happened due to hourslong protests between his party and the police.

Khan is accused of illegally selling state gifts he had received during his term as premier and concealing his assets.

Khan has denied all charges against him, saying he is being victimized by the government.
