" “The hapless man knew he did not have any option – the odds were against us, and Masih knew we could do nothing else except seek refuge in courts,” she said. “My heart grieved when I handed him into police custody. I’m determined to prove his innocence, because I believe that he has been wrongly accused.”
"The furor of Islamist protestors outside the Lahore courtroom on Thursday (Nov. 7) led Judge Muzamil Ahmed Khan to call off Masih’s scheduled appearance in which the court would have decided where he will be held, Maria said. She added that he will likely be sent to prison until trial as a security precaution."
