Report: Meriam Ibrahim to be released from Sudan’s death row


Daily Mail:

A Sudanese woman facing down a death sentence for marrying a Christian will be freed, it has been reported.

Meriam Ibrahim, who gave birth in prison this week, was sentenced to death for abandoning Islam, but is now set to be released in a matter of days.

There was a lot of international pressure regarding this situation but her lawyer isn’t sure he’s buying the reversal:

Abdullahi Alazreg, an under-secretary at the foreign ministry, announced the decision to the BBC, saying that Sudan guaranteed religious freedom and was committed to protecting the woman.

However, Mrs Ibrahim’s lawyers said they do not believe the offer is genuine, and is a ploy to silence the growing outcry.

Elshareef Ali Mohammed, one of her legal team, told the Telegraph: ‘It’s to silence the international media. This is what the government do. We will not believe that she is being freed until she walks out of the prison’.

Her husband is an American citizen and we need to do what we can to get her to the U.S.
