Former Prime Minister Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi were convicted to 14 years in prison by an accountability court in the Toshakhana case.
The decision comes a day after the PTI founder was sentenced to ten years in prison for the cypher case by a special court constituted under the Official Secrets Act.
Bushra Bibi, the former premier’s wife, surrendered to the court shortly after the verdict was announced. The NAB team, which was already at the jail where the hearing was taking place, took her into custody the moment she arrived.
Mohammad Bashir, an accountability court judge, presided over the session in Rawalpindi’s Adiala jail, where the former prime minister is jailed.
Imran and Bushra were also forbidden from holding public office for the next ten years and fined around Rs1,574 million.
The judge also directed the two to record their testimonies under Section 342 of the Code of Criminal Procedure and waived the prosecution witnesses’ right to cross-examination.
The pair was indicted in the reference on January 9.
