US Failure Leads to Sudan Mom's Legal Limbo
The case of Meriam Ibrahim, the Christian Sudanese mom who was recently freed from prison after being sentenced to death for apostasy, remains in legal limbo.
Ibrahim and her husband are facing charges for trying to leave the country using falsified travel documents, which U.S. authorities insist are all in proper order.
The family is currently under protective custody at the U.S. Embassy in Sudan as they wait for the Sudanese government to grant them permission to leave the North African country.
Tina Ramirez, founder of Hardwired, an organization that works to end religious oppression around the world, says the U.S. bears a portion of the blame for the family's situation.
She said the U.S. State Department dropped the ball on this case because of its failure to act when Ibrahim's husband first brought the matter to the agency's attention last October.
CBN News Reporter Charlene Aaron spoke with Ramirez about the latest information on Ibrahim's status and what Christians can do to help.
