ISLAMABAD: A Pakistani court yesterday suspended former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s recent conviction on corruption charges, his lawyer Naeem Panjutha said,  but it will not lead to his release as a judge has ordered his detention in another case.

The 70-year-old former cricket hero has been at the centre of political turmoil in the crisis-ridden nuclear-armed state since his ouster in a Parliamentary vote of confidence in April 2022, and his relations with Pakistan’s powerful generals have deteriorated badly over the past year.

Khan’s legal team had lodged an appeal on the grounds that he was convicted without being given the right to defend himself.
