A Pakistani court has convicted former prime minister Imran Khan in an asset concealment case, which could disqualify him from politics.

It is a fresh blow to Khan’s bid to return to power.

Since his ousting from power in a no-confidence vote in parliament in April 2022, Khan has been slapped with more than 150 legal cases, including several on charges of corruption, terrorism and inciting people to violence over deadly protests in May that saw his followers attack government and military property across the country.
