About Imran Khan:

After a disagreement with Pakistan’s powerful military, the former cricketer-turned-politician, 70, was removed in a no-confidence vote last year after being elected in 2018.

About The Verdict :

The claims that he misdeclared information about gifts from foreign dignitaries and the revenues of their purported sale were the focus of Saturday’s verdict.

Rolex watches, a ring, and a set of cuff links were among the gifts, which were said to be valued at about 140 million Pakistani rupees ($635,000; £500,000).

His dishonesty has been shown beyond a reasonable doubt, according to Judge Humayun Dilawar’s verdict. Some pro-government protesters screamed “your show is over Khan” outside the courts.
