Pakistan Top Court to Rule on Conviction in Wall Street Journal
ISLAMABAD—Pakistan’s highest court is expected to decide as soon as next
week whether a British national whose conviction for killing Wall Street
Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was overturned earlier this year will be
freed nearly two decades after the murder.
The fate of Omar Sheikh, who was sentenced to death in 2002 for
orchestrating the abduction and killing of Mr. Pearl, has become an
important litmus test of Pakistan’s relationship with the U.S.
Ahead of a hearing scheduled for Monday, the Pearl family said that
releasing Mr. Sheikh would motivate militants around the world.
“This would be an invitation and encouragement to extreme elements all
over the globe to feel free to initiate acts of terrorism, and play
games with human life,” said Judea Pearl, the journalist’s father. “It
would be a message of impunity.”
