Letter: Bishop's assistance

From the Bishop of Rochester

Sir: Andrew Brown ("Bishop says UK would provide no safe haven", 25 February) is wrong to say I played "no active part" in the campaign to free the two accused of blasphemy in Pakistan. In fact, I was in constant touch with the government of Pakistan, its High Commission here and with different church groups in Pakistan who were working for their release.

Yours faithfully,


Rochester, Kent

27 February
