ICC Note:

The House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations will be holding a hearing on “The Troubling Case of Meriam Ibrahim” from 2:00-5:00 pm EDT on Wednesday, July 23. Subcommittee Chairman, Representative Chris Smith (R) (NJ-4) said, “Meriam Ibrahim Ishag has been imprisoned in Sudan in fear of execution, chained during the late stages of her pregnancy, forced to give birth in prison, released from prison and re-arrested on flimsy charges. This all is the result of her being Christian in a country in which the ruling authorities refuse to recognize the right of people to choose their own religion. Our hearing will examine this troubling violation of a basic human right.” Learn everything you need to know about Meriam’s case, and how you can help, here.

07/23/2014 United States (Christian Broadcasting Network) – A House panel is holding a hearing Wednesday on the plight of Meriam Ibrahim, the Christian woman stuck in Sudan after her death sentence for apostasy was overturned.

Ibrahim, 27, had been sentenced to death for marrying a Christian, who is an American citizen, and for abandoning the Muslim faith.

A judge dropped the sentence after an international outcry, but not before Ibrahim was forced to give birth to her second child in shackles.

Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., chairman of the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee, will oversee the hearing, titled “The Troubling Case of Meriam Ibrahim.”
