ICC Note: 

It has now been a year since the Christian pastors, along with a Czech Christian aid worker  Peter Jašek,  have been improvised.  This petition comes among other calls to free the men. Christian Solidarity World Wide has called for their release stating, ” the men have been on trial as a result of an act of kindness.” They were arrested after raising money and helping get a boy, who was badly burned during a protest.

12/13/2016 Sudan (Christian Post) – Time is running out for two Christian pastors facing a possible death penalty in Sudan, the American Center for Law and Justice is warning as it launches a global petition asking the world to help save the two men.

The Rev. Hassan Abduraheem and Rev. Kuwa Shamal have been arrested, transferred, and re-arrested on multiple occasions this past year in the Islamic-majority country of Sudan, with government officials accusing them of national security crimes.

CLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow is arguing, however, that the imprisonment and the threat of a death penalty punishment are directly linked to the pastors’ Christian faith, and has warned that if other believers don’t speak up, the government of Sudan will send them to their deaths.

“They could be sentenced to hang for their faith if the world is silent,” Sekulow wrote in an email, linking to the petition.

“Christian Pastors Hassan and Kuwa need your voice now. Time is of the essence, as the trial continues. Our silence could be their death,” he added.

“Other Christians facing death in Sudan are now free because you spoke out. Be heard now for these persecuted Christians.”
