US asks Pakistan to grant consular access to Khadija Shah

  • Says Washington has asked Pakistani officials for consular access
Published June 7, 2023

The United States has called on Pakistan to grant consular access to Khadija Shah, a prominent fashion designer and granddaughter of former army chief Asif Nawaz Janjua who was detained after the violence on May 9 in the aftermath of Imran Khan’s arrest.

Khadija, who has Pakistani as well as American citizenships, was arrested on May 23 in a case of attacking the Corp Commander, and sent to judicial lockup for identification parade.

US State Department Spokesperson Vedant Patel, during a press briefing on Tuesday, said Washington has been following her case.

“Have asked Pakistani officials for consular access to her … I’ve previously said, we always urge foreign governments to allow and follow consular notifications for procedures when American citizens are detained.

“I believe Ms. Shah is a dual national, and so we continue to engage directly with the Government of Pakistan on this,” Patel said.

He further said that “whenever a US citizen is arrested overseas, Washington stands ready to provide all appropriate assistance”.

“And we expect Pakistani authorities to respect all free – all fair trial guarantees owed to these detainees.”

Meanwhile, Patel categorically declared former prime minister Imran Khan’s claims of a “US conspiracy” in toppling his government as “false”.

“These allegations are categorically false; you have heard me say this before.

“Pakistani politics are a matter for the Pakistani people to decide and for them to pursue within the auspices of their own constitution and laws,’’ the spokesperson said.

The Jahil leaders have forgotten what Islam teaches about rights of the human beings...Haqooq ul Ebad...and...Prophet's (pbuh) emphasis on taking care of women...in his last sermon!

@Abdullah, This is not about helping IK, its about helping human beings/citizens of Pakistan. The neutrals have taken the whole shi... show too far, its not about IK anymore, its about journalists, PTI supporters, their families, basically the general public of Pakistan staying safe and having their rights and dignities preserved...the people controlling the security apparatus have gone too far...
