Margot Parker MEP - Asia Bibi must now be allowed to live in peace with her family in a country that can offer sanctuary to a genuine refugee fleeing for her life

Recent reports have suggested the Foreign Office admitted that Asia Bibi was blocked from being offered asylum for fears of attack to its officials.

While I have every sympathy with the fear of such problems, my main sympathy lies with Asia Bibi.

I again call on the British Government to offer asylum to Asia Bibi and her family. 

We live in a Christian country and I believe it is the Christian thing to do. Asia Bibi has been acquitted by the Supreme Court of Pakistan of the charges brought against her.

She must now be allowed to live in peace with her family in a country that can offer sanctuary to a genuine refugee fleeing for her life.
