Sudan: Family of Sudan’s Apostasy Woman Files a Lawsuit to Annul Marriam Ibrahim’s Marriage

Khartoum — The family of the Sudanese woman formerly accused of apostasy has filed another lawsuit to annul her marriage to her Christian husband. Meriam Ibrahim was sentenced to death last May for renouncing Islam, but was released after what the government said was “unprecedented” international pressure. An appeals court found Ibrahim not guilty on two charges of apostasy and adultery and overturned the lower tribunal’s verdict.
