Lahore, 27th July: Any hope of rescue by the murderer Zahir Jaffer in Noor Mukadam’s murder case has gone down the drain after a recent tweet by the US Embassy Islamabad.
According to details, the United States Embassy in Islamabad sent out a clear message on Tuesday and said that the embassy can not facilitate any US citizen abroad in court proceedings.
The US Embassy in Islamabad shared the message a while ago on its official Twitter page. It said that US citizens, in a foreign country must abide by that country’s laws.
In a foreign country, U.S. citizens are subject to that country’s laws. When Americans are arrested abroad, the Embassy can check on their well-being and provide a list of lawyers, but cannot provide legal advice, participate in court proceedings or effect their release.
