Pakistan verhaftet Hunderte nach Imran Khans Urteil wegen Korruption

By Jordi Bou

May 10, 2023 - Pakistans früherer Premierminister Imran Khan plädiert auf nicht schuldig zu Korruptionsvorwürfen, einen Tag nachdem seine Verhaftung zu wilden Protesten im ganzen Land geführt haben.

Nearly 1,000 people have been arrested, police say, and eight people have died nationwide in the protests.

Tuesday’s arrest of the former cricket hero, and Pakistan’s most popular politician according to opinion polls, came at a precarious time for the country that is facing a shortage of foreign exchange and a months-long delay of an IMF bailout.

His arrest came a day after the powerful military rebuked him for repeatedly accusing a senior military officer of trying to engineer his assassination and the former armed forces chief of being behind his removal from power last year.
