A presidential order in 2008 imposed a moratorium on the death penalty for civilians in Pakistan. The only execution in the country since that time was a soldier convicted of murder in 2012.
Civilians who have avoided execution in Pakistan include:
- Leeds-born Mirza Tahir Hussain - sentenced to death for murder in 2006. Then-prime minster Tony Blair and Prince Charles successfully appealed against the sentence
- Christian teenager Rimsha Masih - arrested for alleged blasphemy after being accused of burning a copy of the Qur'an. Masih, estimated to be around 14, was held in jail for three weeks. After an international outcry, charges against her were dropped and she and her family fled to Canada.
