Asia Bibi is now (mid-2015) 50 years old. For more than five years she has been on death row in Multan Jail for alleged blasphemy against the prophet Muhammad.
Her family have been Europe recently, seeking to galvanise support for Asia’s case. They have now rushed back, after hearing news that Asia is in poor health. She has intestinal bleeding, is struggling to eat, and can barely walk.
Her lawyers are trying to persuade the authorities to ensure that she has a thorough medical examination and better health care, and to allow her to be moved to Lahore Jail, in order to be nearer to her family.
