    Almost 200 parliamentarians have signed an open letter to the Pakistani Prime Minister urging the government to secure Asia Bibi’s safe removal from the country.

    According to media reports, although she has left the prison, she has not yet been allowed to leave the country.

    Paul Coleman, Executive Director of human rights organisation ADF International said he is grateful for the more than 190 parliamentarians internationally who have written to the Pakistani Prime Minister.

    Last week Bibi was acquitted of blasphemy and her death penalty overturned by the Supreme Court, eight years after being sentenced to death.
