The Islamic Republic of Pakistan’s highest court has upheld the acquittal of Asia Bibi, a Christian mother of five who was put on death row for eight years after being convicted of violating the nation’s blasphemy laws.

Pakistan’s Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that Bibi will not be retried after being found not guilty of insulting the Prophet Muhammad during an argument with a few Muslim colleagues.

“We are not hearing the case again, the lawyer was unable to point out a single error in the judgment,” stated Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khan Khosa, as reported by CNN.
