Asia Bibi said on Friday that she had been invited to live in France, after a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron.
“I have received the invitation from the president and the French Republic, and I’m honored,” she said.
She had gotten into a quarrel with fellow farm workers, when she was not allowed to have water in the same container as the others, since she was Christian. She was subsequently charged with making derogatory comments about Prophet Muhammad.
Asia Bibi spent eight years on death row, until 2018, when Pakistan’s top court overturned her conviction. Many orthodox religious groups protested against this action, and called for her death.
She moved to Canada in 2019, and has been living there in a three-room apartment in an undisclosed location.
