Freedom still eludes Sarabjit Singh

Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raja Gillani on Friday said that his government would request President Musharraf to commute death sentences of prisoners to life imprisonment.

However, it is not yet certain if this will include prisoners accused of terror or espionage because Gillani did say that there will be no reprieve for those involved in heinous crimes.

The announcement has, however, brought hope for the family of Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh who is facing a death sentence in Pakistan.
