Asia Bibi’s acquittal will be very welcome news to her family and those who have campaigned in Pakistan and around the world for her release. We are closely monitoring the situation and developments. The UK’s position on the death penalty in all circumstances and in all countries is well-known, we call for its abolition globally.
