Update: 4:15PM A RULING on the appeal by former Prime Minister Mahendra Chaudhry on his sentence and conviction is likely tomorrow.

Chaudhry was convicted of violating the Exchange Control after he failed to declare $AUD1.5million he kept in banks in Australia. 

He was fined $2million and ordered to repatriate all money he kept in overseas banks.

The conviction meant that Chaudhry was ineligible to contest the General Election in September.
