Pakistani Former Prime Minister Imran Khan back in court

Pakistan's former Prime Minister Imran Khan has more than 100 cases against him since he was ousted from power in April last year.

Khan arrived in the capital Islamabad to appear before an anti-terrorism court.

Several cases were filed against the former prime minister after violence erupted outside the Islamabad Judicial Complex during Khan's court appearance in March.

In at least eight cases, the court ordered Khan to be released on bail, Anadolu Agency reported.


Khan was arrested on corruption charges on May 9.

The Islamabad High Court released the former Prime Minister on May 12 on 2-week interim bail.

The nuclear-armed country in South Asia has been in the grip of severe political turmoil coupled with a deteriorating economy since Khan was ousted in April 2021 in a vote of no confidence.

Khan is demanding that elections scheduled for October this year be brought forward.
