APPG statement on acquittal of Asia Bibi

The APPG welcomes the acquittal of Asia Bibi.

Mrs Bibi was accused of blasphemy in 2010 which automatically carries the death penalty. The Supreme Court determined that no solid evidence of wrongdoing was presented before the Court in the eight years that Mrs Bibi remained in prison.

The APPG urges the Pakistani Government to protect Asia Bibi, all those associated with her and her acquittal, and any other individual at risk of reprisal on the basis of their religion or belief.
