the hague - The lawyer of Asia Bibi demands protection from the Netherlands. As counsel for the Christian Asia Bibi he successfully fought her acquittal for blasphemy in Pakistan. Furious Muslim fanatics in Pakistan, however, demand that Bibi be put to death.
Her lawyer Ul-Malook was so badly threatened that he fled to the Netherlands this week. His family is still heavily secured in Lahore. 'The Netherlands calls itself champion human rights. If that country can not protect me, I'd rather go back to Pakistan to have me murdered by the religious fanatics. '
