A Pakistan court handed former Prime Minister Imran Khan a 10-year jail term today for leaking state secrets, the former premier’s media team said.
The case pertains to allegations that Khan had shared the contents of a secret cable sent by the country’s ambassador in Washington to the government in Islamabad.
Khan’s party, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), said both Khan and former Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi had been sentenced to 10 years each by a special court.
It said the party would challenge the decision and called it a “sham case”.
