Pakistan confirms Asia Bibi, Christian woman who spent years on death row convicted of blasphemy, left for Canada
Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN)Asia Bibi, a Pakistani Christian woman freed from death row last year has arrived in Canada, according to her lawyer, Saif Ul Malook.
Last October she was freed on appeal, sparking violent demonstrations stoked up by Taliban supporters.
She was put under armed protection from Islamist death squads as she sought asylum in a Western country.
Britain was urged to offer her sanctuary, but never did – and was accused of ‘pulling up the drawbridge’. Shameful!
Eventually, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau stepped in. Her daughters are already there, awaiting their mother.
