Europe briefing: Pakistan blasphemy lawyer flees to the Netherlands and EPP congress

The lawyer of a Christian woman who was jailed in Pakistan on blasphemy charges and subsequently freed has fled to the Netherlands, their government confirmed Thursday.

Saiful Mulook arrived in the country on Saturday and was welcome to stay for several months, the Foreign Affairs Ministry said.

Mulook left Pakistan in fear for his life after reportedly receiving death threats from critics angered by his client Asia Bibi’s release.
