Judge slips away

Threats from Islamic fundamentalists forced a Pakistani judge to go underground in October.

The judge had imposed a death sentence on the police officer who assassinated Salman Taseer after the Punjab governor criticized a Pakistani blasphemy law that makes it a crime to insult Islam.

Michele Chaudhry, a Roman Catholic and spokesperson for All Pakistan Minorities Alliance, said this is the "danger faced by anyone who is seen as opposing the blasphemy law."
