Fortnight for Freedom: Standing for Religious Liberty on Thursday, June 26, 2014 June 26, 2014

 

The most important thing we can do to stand for religious liberty today is to take action in support of Meriam Ibrahim, who has been detained — again — and charged — again — with a crime related to her conversion to Christianity.

Mrs Ibrahim is being held at a Khartoum police station. This time, she’s charged with using a “forged” passport. According to reports in The Independent, the government of Sudan is refusing to recognize her passport because it was issued by the government of South Sudan. Sudan does not recognize Mrs Ibrahim’s right to a passport from South Sudan because they do not recognize her marriage to her Christian husband, who is a citizen of South Sudan.

Mrs Ibrahim’s husband is also an American citizen.

The crime they have charged her with is punishable by a 7-year prison sentence.

Please email, call or write the Sudanese Embassy and tell them that you support Mrs Ibrahim and request that the Sudanese government release her immediately.

You can contact the Sudanese Embassy by email here.

  1. I have emailed and will continue to email the Sudanese embassy until this woman is afforded her freedom of movement. This is frustrating and maddening.

      • The reply –canned and standard to this, I’m sure– appears to show that, while they are attempting to justify her detention, they are sensitive to what the world is seeing. But no matter what sort of spin they put on this (“she must do this legally”) the rest of the world recognizes petty and narrow-minded bureaucracy when they see it. By burying them with phone calls, email and snail mail, I believe they can be forced to open their eyes. Thanks for the link to the embassy. It will become part of my email signature until this woman and her family are permitted to leave.
