Pakistan’s former prime minister Imran Khan was continuing his legal battle Tuesday before a court in the capital, Islamabad, which granted him protection from arrest until early next month in several cases in which he is charged with terrorism for inciting violence.

Authorities have launched a crackdown on supporters of Khan, who is now the main opposition leader. Thousands of people participated in violent protests and attacked public property and military installations following Khan’s arrest this month.

The violence did not subside until several days later, when Khan was released on the orders of the country’s Supreme Court. Ten people were killed in clashes with police.

Khan, who was ousted with a no-confidence motion in parliament in April last year, has campaigned against the government of his successor, Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif, demands early elections and claims his departure from the government was illegal.

Since then, the 70-year-old former cricketer-turned-Islamist politician has been embroiled in more than 100 legal cases against him. He faces charges of corruption allegedly committed while in government and has been accused of terrorism in eight cases over violent protests by his supporters and his opposition Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party.

After the Islamabad court granted Khan shelter from arrest on terrorism charges until June 8, he and his wife traveled to the nearby city of Rawalpindi to appear before the National Accountability Bureau to answer questions about another corruption case.

The couple is accused of accepting as a gift a property to build a private university in exchange for favoring a real estate tycoon. Khan denies the allegations and said neither he nor his wife, Bushra Bibi, had been involved in any wrongdoing.
