Imran Khan’s Toshakhana case will be heard by Pakistan’s Supreme Court on August 23.

21 August, Islamabad, Pakistan (ANI): Following appeals made by the former prime minister Imran Khan against his conviction, The Apex Court of Pakistan set the hearing date for the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman in the Toshakhana case for August 23, according to The Express Tribune on Monday.

According to The Express Tribune, the petitions would be heard by a three-judge panel presided over by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial and made up of Justices Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi and Jamal Mandokhel.

The PTI Chairman filed a lawsuit against the Islamabad High Court’s ruling on August 3.

The former premier was found guilty by district and sessions judge Humayun Dilawar after the IHC referred the case to him. According to The Express Tribune, Imran’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf appealed the ruling to the Supreme Court as a result of the action.

Imran Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, had previously been sentenced by the Pakistan District and Sessions Court on August 5 to three years in prison for illegally selling official goods and was also banned from politics for five years, according to local media.

Soon after being found guilty in the Toshakhana case, the PTI Chairman was taken into custody at his Zaman Park home in Lahore. According to Geo News, Imran Khan was also fined 100,000 Pakistani Rupees (PKR) by the court.

According to Pakistan’s Geo News, Khan has expressed his displeasure at being imprisoned and claimed he doesn’t want to remain there. Imran Khan reportedly told his attorneys in the Attock jail, “Take me out of here; I don’t want to remain in jail,” according to the authorities. According to sources, the PTI Chairman Imran Khan further claimed that he is still confined to “distressing” conditions in his prison cell. (ANI)
