Gillian Gibbons pardoned
The BBC has just reported that Gillian Gibbons has been released from prison in Sudan. She was pardoned by President Omar al-Bashir after a meeting with two British Muslim peers, Lord Ahmed and Baroness Warsi.
Ms Gibbons did nothing to offend Islam. She should never have been imprisoned in the first place. It's good to see some sense.in what has been a ridiculous case.
