Briton on death row

Imagine the scene. Cleared of murder by a criminal court in Pakistan, you are then convicted of the same offence by a religious court and sentenced to death. What's more, the government of the country you are from and a citizen of will do nothing to right the wrong.
At least it's consistent with the stance over the remaining UK residents held in Guantanamo, albeit not in a good way.

UPDATE 18/10/06: He's due to die on November 1.
UPDATE 19/10/06: If the Pakistani state do murder this chap, all is not lost. Prince Charles won't go for a visit!!!!!!! That'll show 'em. Bizarrely, it sort of worked though, as he's now been given a 2-month stay.
