The family of American journalist Daniel Pearl, who was kidnapped and murdered in Pakistan in 2002, has expressed hope that those involved in the crime will remain in prison and a provincial court decision to issue their release warrants is a “parody of justice.” “.
Four men, including Britain-Pakistan Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, have been convicted of the kidnapping and murder of a Wall Street Journal reporter.
The sheikh was sentenced to death while the other three men were jailed for life.
In April of that year, the Sheikh’s sentence was changed to seven years in prison and the other three were released.
In a statement Perle’s family said “the killers must remain in prison” before appealing the release, which will be tried in the Supreme Court on January 5.
