Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi have been sentenced to seven years in prison after a court ruled their marriage was illegal.
The latest verdict follows another case in which Khan, 71, and Bibi, 49, were sentenced to 14 years in prison on Wednesday for corruption. The former cricketer was also handed 10 year sentence the day before for leaking state secrets.
The prosecution said Khan and his wife violated the law that a woman must wait three months before marrying again.
Bibi was previously married to a man who claimed that they divorced in November 2017, less than three months before she married Khan on January 1, 2018. Bibi has said they divorced in August 2017.
The former spiritual healer is Khan’s third wife, following from Jemima Goldsmith, who was married to the former sportsman for nine years and former BBC weathergirl Reham Khan, who spent just 10 months with Khan.
