ICC Note:

ICC continues to push for Meriam Ibrahim’s immediate and unconditional release. At a second protest #ForMeriam, ICC delivered a petition with more than 10,000 signatures to the Sudanese Embassy in Washington, D.C. ICC is also working closely with congressional offices and continues to place pressure on both the Obama administration for decisive action and the government of Sudan for Meriam’s freedom.

06/19/2014 Washington, D.C. (One News Now) – Meriam Ibrahim is the Christian wife and mother currently being held in her native Sudan on a charge of apostasy — something that calls for the death sentence in Sudan.

Ibrahim’s accusers claim she was Muslim and became Christian, but Ibrahim’s husband, an American citizen, asserts his wife has never been Muslim. Meanwhile, the couple’s two children, one of them a newborn, are in prison with their mother.

Several different organizations are pushing petitions, and International Christian Concern (ICC) is also working closely with members of Congress on legislation regarding Ibrahim.

“We’re also continuing to press the Sudanese government directly,” reports ICC spokesman Isaac Six.

ICC demonstrated last week outside the White House and the Sudanese embassy. Many other groups participated, as did Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ).
