ACLJ: ‘Critical victory’ for persecuted couple

by D. Bennett

The American Center for Law and Justice reports that a Pakistani Christian couple, after being kidnapped for months in an effort to get them to recant their faith, have been granted asylum in the United Kingdom.

“At a time when so many Christian converts face real persecution – including the threat of death – it’s encouraging that this couple can now stay in the U.K.,” said Jay Sekulow, ACLJ chief counsel. “We’re delighted we were able to provide assistance in this very important case.”

The couple’s request for asylum in the U.K. was initially denied, but they were allowed to appeal that decision.
