The Federal High Court today sentenced all CUD leaders who were falsely convicted of outrage against the constitution to life imprisonment. The other nine who weren’t in CUD leadership got sentences ranging form 1 year and six months to 18 years imprisonment.

The court also decided to take away the political rights of CUD leaders to elect and be elected. It decided that the judicial interdiction is absolute. It means the interdiction is applicable throughout their life time.
