Government Of Sudan Agrees To "FREE" Woman Sentenced To Death For Apostacy

Meriam and her baby born in prison

This is some good news, View Point hopes the Sudanese government will keep their word and free this young woman and her children.
A Sudanese Under-secretary at the foreign ministry Abdullahi Alzareg said Sudan guaranteed religious freedom and was committed to protecting the woman. He said Meriam would be free from prison in a matter of days.
Meanwhile her lawyer, Elshareef Ali Mohammed has expressed reservations over the government's new position, saying they are just trying to divert international attention from the case and that he doubts she would be freed soon

    "It’s a statement to silence the international media. This is what the government does. We will not believe that she is being freed until she walks out of the prison. If they were to release her, the announcement would come from the appeal court and not from the ministry of foreign affairs. But at least it shows our campaign to free Meriam is rattling them. We must keep up the pressure.” he said

Meriam gave birth to her second baby in prison on Tuesday May 27th.
