ISLAMABAD PAKISTAN (Shamim Masih):
The Supreme Court of Pakistan has accepted an application by Prosector Malik Ummad to re-open Rimsha Masih's case.
Earlier on January 16, 2013, the Supreme Court (SC) had dismissed a final appeal against Rimsha Masih during her blasphemy case, effectively ending all legal proceedings on the issue.
On 22nd March, the bench of three judges headed by Justice Tasdaq Hussain Gilani made an order for the case to proceed again.
According to sources, Rimsha’s complainant has filed an application in the apex court to review the decision of the Islamabad High Court (IHC), which is accepted by the SC.
Earlier Islamabad High Court (IHC) had removed all charges against Rimsha.
No Counsel represented Rimsha Masih during the hearing.
