Meriam Ibrahim Freed, But Back in Jail

The news a couple of days ago was that charges of adultery and apostasy from Islam against Meriam Ibrahim had been dropped after her lawyers appealed to the court in Sudan. (I am guessing that international pressure, more than the lawyers’ legal arguments, won her release.)

Reports today are that she and her family have been detained after allegedly trying to leave Sudan with invalid travel documents.

The US State Department apparently is now working to get her to the US legally. Hopefully this issue can be resolved quickly. Meriam’s husband, Daniel Wani, and their two children are US citizens.

If you have not yet contacted Congress, the White House or the State Department about this issue, click on the appropriate tab above and call or e-mail, asking them to use US diplomatic power to keep the pressure on the Sudanese government. Thank you to all my readers who have already supported Meriam with a phone call or e-mail.
