Back Amnesty Campaign to Stop Execution..

Sudanese woman sentenced to death for being a Christian: Is this a modern day witch hunt?

Meriam Ibrahim is on death row in Sudan for refusing to renounce Christianity. Hannah Strange explores what’s really going on.

Of all the places one does not want to fall foul of religious diktats, Sudan ranks fairly high on the list.

It is urgent that we back this campaign.

Meriam Yehya Ibrahim has been sentenced to death for ‘apostasy’, or refusing to renounce her Christian faith. Meriam is imprisoned with her newborn baby girl and her 20-month-old son.

Meriam has also been sentenced to 100 lashes for being married to a Christian man. She is a prisoner of conscience. Ask Sudan to release her.
