On Monday, a Pakistani Supreme Court acquitted former Prime Minister Imran Khan of the treason charge for which he was previously convicted, although he is still imprisoned on other charges.

According to media reports, ahead of the elections in February, three prison sentences were issued against the former Prime Minister of Pakistan in cases that he insists were arranged to prevent his return to power.

Salman Safdar, a lawyer for Khan's Tehreek-e-Insaf party, confirmed the former prime minister's acquittal of the charge.

Imran Khan is still in prison, where he is serving a 7-year sentence for violating Islamic law by having an affair with his wife, Bushra Bibi, shortly after her divorce. He was also convicted of corruption as a result of gifts he received when he was Prime Minister between 2018 and 2022.
