Asia Bibi: Tajani (EU Parliament), “a fair process and no discrimination or religious prejudice”

(Strasbourg) “I want to remind you of the case of Asia Bibi, the woman from the Christian minority group who risks being hanged in Pakistan”: this was stated today by the president of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, when, during the plenary meeting in Strasbourg, he went back to the case of the woman sentenced to death. “Asia Bibi enraged some women for having drunk from a well. According to those women, such contact with Christian lips would have contaminated the water. After being attacked and reported for blasphemy, Asia Bibi risks being hanged. I ask the Pakistani authorities – Tajani said – to make sure that woman can have a fair trial and to avoid any form of discrimination or religious prejudice”.
