    Annemo, I think she and her children will be safer in the U.S.A., to which I think she has a right of entry; but even if she doesn’t have a legal right to return, the gov’t there daren’t deny her entry.

    Yes, they do Marc… (we must give credit where credit is due! 😉 )

    This from today is how things stand at present:
    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/africa/apostasy-woman-meriam-ibrahim-us-ambassador-summoned-by-sudan-government-after-christian-convert-detained-trying-to-flee-country-9563842.html

    I’m no lawyer, but I don’t see how using documents “issued by the embassy of South Sudan” to leave the country she (or her lawyers) can be accused of “forgery”!!
    At least Mariam has the staunch loyalty of her family and team of lawyers, but her ‘via crucis‘ is not over yet. We must continue to pray for her.

    P.S. The language of the title of the article is misleading I think. Calling her leaving the country “to flee” gives the impression she was doing something illegal. Besides, she was not a Christian “convert” – she was always Christian.
