Former British Member of Parliament Imran Ahmed Khan has been sentenced to 18 months in prison at Southwark Crown Court after being found guilty of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy, Palestinian news agency Media reported on Monday. Khan, who was an MP for Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party, resigned from his position in Parliament last month after being found guilty of assaulting the boy in a home in 2008. He has denied the accusation.

Khan represented the Wakefield region in northern England. His replacement will be elected on June 23.

Khan, 48, had said he was “withdrawing from political life” when he announced his decision to give up his parliamentary seat, for which he was elected in 2019.
