US Reacts to Former PM Imran Khan’s Sentence in Cipher Case

US responded to Imran Khan’s sentence in the cipher case on Tuesday.

In response to Imran Khan’s sentence in the cipher case on Tuesday, a US official said that Pakistani courts have the authority to decide whether to prosecute the former prime minister.

Speaking to Khan’s 10-year prison term, State Department Spokesman Matthew Miller underlined that the United States wants to see a just and democratic process in Pakistan.

Miller emphasized that the United States supports an inclusive, democratic elections process with wide participation rather than taking a position on Pakistan’s domestic issues, such as the choice of candidates for office.

Miller refrained from drawing parallels between Imran Khan’s sentence and the developments in Venezuela, even as she reiterated the United States’ commitment to keeping an eye on the next ten days leading up to the elections.

He claimed that the circumstances are different and that the United States has not yet made decisions about the Pakistani judicial system.

Miller emphasized the emphasis placed by the United States on Venezuela’s history of repressing democracy, especially its disregard for pledges made to permit political candidates to run.

In a related development, the United States had earlier eased restrictions on the gold industry in Venezuela following a court ruling that invalidated the candidacies of two candidates for president.
