Jan 29, 2021 08:34 IST

The White House has expressed “outrage” over Pakistan Supreme Court’s decision acquitting those involved in the sensational kidnapping and murder of Daniel Pearl in 2002 and said that the judgement is an "affront" to terrorism victims everywhere.

Pakistan's Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed appeals against the acquittal of British-born al-Qaeda terrorist Omar Saeed Sheikh in the kidnapping and murder case of Pearl and ordered his release.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday, said: “The United States is outraged by the Pakistani Supreme Court's decision to affirm the acquittals of those responsible for Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl's kidnapping and brutal murder which shocked the world's conscience in 2002”.
