Sudan this week banned five attorneys from leaving the country after another lawyer accused them of tainting the country’s image by defending Meriam Ibrahim, the Christian mother of two falsely accused of apostasy, two of the attorneys said. The move came in response to attorney Iman Hassan submitting a letter of complaint to a Sudan court accusing the defense lawyers of wresting the case from her, Ibrahim’s lawyers said.

Meriam Ibrahim, the Christian mother who had been sentenced to death in Sudan by Islamic authorities, has been re-released, according to reports on Tuesday late afternoon. Ibrahim was originally sentenced to death and ordered to be lashed for allegedly converting from Islam to Christianity, however, she was set free from prison on Monday when an appeals court overturned the original conviction.

Dozens of human rights and faith groups began demonstrating Thursday, June 12, in front of the White House for the release of Meriam Ibrahim, the 27-year-old mother of two sentenced to death for apostasy in Sudan.

Before her execution by hanging, she is to receive 100 lashes for her marriage to a South Sudanese Christian. “Because the Shariah court in Khartoum considers her a Muslim, it does not recognize her marriage to Daniel Wani, who is an American citizen, originally from South Sudan,” said Faith J. H. McDonnell, an official of the influential Institute on Religion and Democracy.
