Pakistani bishop laments failure to arrest Christians’ murderers

Bishop Joseph Coutts of Faisalabad-- the city in which two Christian brothers were murdered on July 19 following their acquittal on blasphemy charges-- is again urging Pakistani police to apprehend the assailant. “The men were killed in public with a lot of people present as witnesses as well as three police officers in attendance,” Bishop Coutts told Aid to the Church in Need. “It should not be difficult to apprehend the person who killed them. We have got to keep putting pressure in the search for justice. The authorities would be quite happy to close the whole thing and let the matter drop.”

It is a travesty, a sheer and total travesty, that the assailant was not apprehended. May justice be served eventually whether it comes at the Last Judgment or soon. :crossrc:
