Asia Bibi is seeking political asylum in France less than a year after fleeing her native Pakistan for the safety of Canada.

The Catholic mother, who spent nearly a decade on death row in Pakistan after she was falsely accused of blasphemy against Islam, wants to live closer to French writer Anne-Isabelle Tollet, who was influential in her fight for freedom and helped her to write her autobiography, Enfin Libre  (Finally Free).

At present, Bibi is in France to help to promote the book, which so far has been published only in French, and also to be made an “honorary citizen” of Paris.
