Pakistani court postpones action on Rimsha Masih

CWN - September 13, 2012

A Pakistani court has adjourned the blasphemy trial of Rimsha Masih after a brief hearing, explaining that the investigation of her case is not complete.

AsiaNews, citing local experts, reports that the court is probably waiting for developments in the case of an Islamic cleric who has been charged with planting evidence against Rimsha Masih. That cleric will face a hearing on September 16.

Bishop Rufin Anthony of Islamabad implored the court to release the young girl, saying that she has committed no crime.
