Ms Bibi, who spent eight years on death row and who has been under guard at a secret place since her acquittal last October, was overjoyed at the news.
‘I am really gratefully to everybody, now after nine years it is confirmed that I am free and I will be going to hug my daughters,’ a friend quoted Mrs Bibi as saying.
She will be reunited with her three daughters who earlier fled to Canada where they were granted asylum.
But first she faces a perilous 48 hours as a secret operation gets under way to spirit her out of the country.
A source close to Mrs Bibi said: ‘She is not safe until she gets out. There are powerful people who want her dead’.
