Daniel Pearl’s murder case


Staff Reporter


The trial court that heard American journalist Daniel Pearl’s murder case and its witnesses had received threats, the legal counsel of the journalist’s parents told the Supreme Court on Tuesday. A three-judge bench headed by Justice Musheer Alam was hearing an appeal filed last year by the Sindh government and Pearl’s parents against a Sindh High Court decision to acquit the main suspect in the case, Omar Saeed Sheikh, and three others. During Tuesday’s hearing, the legal counsel of Pearl’s parents, Faisal Siddiqui, said that the case was shifted from Karachi to Hyderabad due to threats.
