January 30, 2024: A Pakistan court on Tuesday sentenced Former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan and Former Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi to 10 years in jail in Cipher case.



The verdict was announced by special court Judge Abul Hasnat Zulqarnain during the hearing held at Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi.

The former premier and Qureshi, who is also behind bars, were first indicted in the case in October. Both had pleaded not guilty. The IHC had termed the government's notification for a jail trial "erroneous" and scrapped the entire proceedings.



Taking to X, the former PM said, "This is not a trial but a fixed match whose outcome was predetermined by the characters and planners of the London Plan and their seals. That is why I already know the decision of this case."
