Headline: ASIA/PAKISTAN – Bail for the kidnapper of the Catholic girl Arzoo Raja
Karachi – A Karachi court of first instance has granted bail to the kidnapper of the Christian minor Arzoo Raja, setting the bail at 500,000 Pakistani rupees and a similar bail for his accomplices such as the Imam who celebrated the child marriage, and the kidnapper’s assistants. This is what Agenzia Fides learns from Mohammad Jibran Nasir, the lawyer for Arzoo Raja’s family. Commenting bitterly on the decision, the lawyer explains: “We will appeal. The judge’s decision came on December 17, after the lawyers of the kidnapper Ali Azhar applied for bail”.
