Additional District and Sessions Judge Humayun Dilawar, who sentenced PTI chief Imran Khan to three years in prison, has flown to the United Kingdom to participate in training.
He would be attending the ‘Judicial Training on Human Rights and the Rule of Law’ from August 5 to August 13. Islamabad High Court Chief Justice Aamer Farooq nominated him for the training.
The training is funded by the Commonwealth Secretariat, London and arranged by the University of Hull, UK.
According to the IHC order on Friday, Dilawal heard the Toshakhana criminal case on Saturday. He handed down the jail sentence after finding Khan guilty of “corrupt practices”.
“The court finds it’s more than convincing that the complainant (ECP) had provided confidence-inspiring, well-knitted and corroborated evidence, and so the charge against the accused has successfully been proven that the accused has committed offence of corrupt practices by making and publishing false statements/declaration in respect of assets acquired by way of gifts from Toshakhana and disposed of during years 2018-2019 and 2019-2020,” Additional District and Sessions Judge Humayun Dilawar said in a short order.
“He has been found guilty of corrupt practices by hiding the benefits he accrued from the national exchequer wilfully and intentionally. He cheated while providing information of gifts he obtained from Toshakhana which later proved to be false and inaccurate. His dishonesty has been established beyond doubt,” the court order added.
