Question: When was the last time the U.S. had consular access to the five American citizens in Pakistan? Did they complain of poor treatment/torture?
Answer: Consular officials visit the five detained U.S. citizens regularly and will continue to visit the defendants as appropriate. We cannot comment further because of privacy considerations.
We take seriously all reports of abuse and torture and raise such allegations with the Government of Pakistan.
