ICC Note

One of the Two Pastors that were recently evicted from their homes in Omdurman, Sudan, has now also been accused of assault charges. Rev Yahya Abdelrahim, head of the Anglican Evangelical Church was summoned to Omdurman police station because of a complaint that he had assaulted another person. This charge follows closely on the heels of the Reverend’s appeal to be able to return to his housing. Ever since his eviction took place, the father has been living on the street in front of his old home. He believes that these charges are just another attempt to rid Omdurman of Christians.
