Ugh. Before she could get out of the country, Meriam Ibrahim was re-arrested by the Sudanese government:
A mother who was freed from death row for refusing to renounce Christianity has been re-arrested just one day later while trying to leave Sudan, her lawyer told NBC News on Tuesday. Meriam Ibrahim, 27, was “very happy” after an appeals court on Monday overturned a death sentence imposed because she married a Christian man and allegedly turned her back on Islam. But lawyer Elshareef Ali Mohammed said a group of 50 security force personnel arrested her and family members during an angry confrontation at Khartoum’s airport on Tuesday.
I was afraid this might happen, or that an angry mob would kill them. They need to get them the hell out of there. Especially with barbarians like this:
On Tuesday, a man who says he is Ibrahim’s brother, Al-Samani Al-Hadi, slammed the appellate court’s decision and talked of vengeance.
“The family is unconvinced by the court’s decision. We were not informed by the court that she was to be released; this came as a surprise to us,” said Al-Hadi. “The law has failed to uphold our rights.
“This is now an issue of honor. The Christians have tarnished our honor, and we will know how to avenge it.”
You think you have the right to kill your sister for being a different religion and you think you’re honorable, you fascist fuckhead?
