Attorneys: Sudan arrests Meriam Yehia Ibrahim, family at airport

posted at 9:21 am on June 24, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

Yesterday’s good news has turned into perhaps even worse news than before. A day after Sudan buckled under international pressure and released Meriam Yehia Ibrahim from prison and a death sentence for apostasy, security forces arrested the entire family at the airport as they attempted to leave the country:

A Sudanese woman whose death sentence for refusing to renounce her Christian faith was revoked has been rearrested, her legal team told CNN Tuesday.

Meriam Ibrahim, 27, and her husband, Daniel Wani, were arrested Tuesday at an airport in Sudan’s capital as they were trying to leave the African country, Ibrahim’s legal team said.

The Daily Mail reports that forty agents took the family of four into custody:

The couple were detained by around 40 security agents with their two children, Maya, one month, and Martin, 21 months.

Meriam’s lawyer, Shareif Ali Shareif, told MailOnline: ‘Meriam Ibrahim and Daniel Wani were arrested at the airport two hours ago [about 1230GMT).

‘They are now in the detention of the National Security forces.

‘The family were trying to leave Sudan for a safe place.

‘The children were with them. The children are with Meriam. They were arrested as well.

‘We don’t have any information about what charges they face. But the National Security force does not have to take them to court. This is not a criminal matter, it a national security matter.’

That cuts both ways, though. In the prior case, the Sudanese government claimed to have no authority to intervene in judicial proceedings (the same would be true here). This is no judicial proceeding, but an act of the government. Diplomacy in this case directly bears on the detention of Ibrahim and her family.

Furthermore, the detention now involves an American citizen, Daniel Wani, as well as the citizenship of his two children. The State Department has to take action with the Sudanese government in this situation, especially given the affront of arresting Wani in the first place after all of the discussion between the US and Sudan over his wife.

The global outcry over Ibrahim’s death sentence for her faith helped to set her free. Let’s hope a similar outcry over this arrest as she prepared to leave Sudan to practice her faith freely does the same, and let’s also hope that State is burning up the phone lines demanding an end to Sudan’s persecution of Ibrahim, her family, and all Christians in the country.

Update: Reuters confirms the arrest with a Sudanese official, although they still won’t say why:

Sudanese authorities re-arrested a Sudanese woman on Tuesday hours after she was freed from death row, and detained her and her family as they tried to board a plane in Khartoum, a security source and her lawyer said. …

The security official said he did know the reason for the re-arrest. One of Ibrahim’s lawyers said she was being held at a security building outside the airport with her husband and two children.

The State Department needs to get the family on a diplomatic transport as soon as possible.

I do understand why they had her detained. Sudan can’t, in good conscience, allow her to leave the country until their population gets in at least a few good days of trying to murder and possibly rape her for apostasy. That would just be unbefitting of a good Islamic country!

Yes, most decent adults would feel its inappropriate to belly-ache about your personal discomfort concerning how much make-up this Sudanese couple were wearing during their wedding photo, particularly when discussing the 2 babies, pregnant wife and US citizen husband being arrested at the point of escape from her death sentence.

The fact of the matter is not only is her husband a legal US citizen, she was also attempting to get US citizenship for herself legally, a very different situation than what is going on with the southern border. You deliberately framed the argument to make it sound like this was just some random person some crazy righties got excited about for no good reason.

It’s pretty telling you want to abandon her to the tender mercies of the Sundanese government, though. I’d been giving you the benefit of the doubt that you were simply ignorant as opposed to malicious. Don’t you left wingers base your entire argument for amnesty around the idea that we should be “compassionate” towards South American illegal aliens who want to come here and get on welfare?

Obama had visited the president of Mexico the other day and the issue was not pressed. I am not sure that Obama is aware of the Marine’s case. These actions by this administration does fill us full of anger. and its called righteous anger. I am for getting all the Christians out of the Middle East ,,, they are going to face massive persecution and death as they already receiving it now. There isn’t that many left there to get.

I was afraid that this wouldn’t work out. The core strength of Islam is to never allow anyone out, even if they say they were never in. Mercy in Islam is giving the transgressor a chance to recant.

For them to say that it’s okay to leave Islam — even once — would create the worst precedent possible. Freedom to leave Islam means the religion’s death.

It is interesting to see how people who care so deeply about this couple are willing to spend vast amounts of their time disparaging my unremarkable remark rather than getting on the phone and calling their representatives to tell them to pressure Obama and the Executive Branch into acting.

I have yet to see a single one say they have done so. But they have tons of time to argue about how these people’s being at risk of life is paramount to themselves.

The same people who moan about political correctness as being something horrible have absolutely no idea that they themselves on this very thread are engaging in political correctness.

OMG, blacks were slaves hundreds of years ago, so you cannot say anything bad about them or you are a racist! (these people would say that is a terrible argument) OMG, this couple could be killed by Islamist scumbags, thus they are above any negative comments. Same political correctness.

I think ‘assnbrainveriineary’ has a problem with is the bride looking so attractive (while being black) in that photo. After all his mother wasn’t wearing any makeup when they had their Oedipal wedding photo taken (even though she bears a striking resemblance to the Crypt Keeper).

Funny how such a small UGLY comment can finally show the small UGLY commenter what a small UGLY person he is.

But, he insists on digging his UGLY hole ever deeper!

Secretary of State Lurch was busy dodging bullets taxes and could not be reached for comment.

“with is the bride” should have been “with this bride”

ZeusGoose on June 24, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Sorry about my last post, I thought this was from yesterday. Should have read the story.

It’s clear that the Sudanese government had no intention of releasing her in the first place. The initial release was a head fake. They knew they could make a scene at the airport and haul her back to prison on some trumped up “national security” ruse, thus removing her case from civil court and all but guaranteeing they’d get their pound of flesh in the end.

CurtZHP on June 24, 2014 at 1:04 PM

Have you done anything to help these poor people out yet? Called any of your federal representatives? Did you give up coffee or something else to be in solidarity with them? Just exactly how much do you care about their plight?

astonerii on June 24, 2014 at 11:58 AM

I have contacted my representative, Randy Neugebauer, and he is well aware of my feelings regarding this as well as the marine being held prisoner in Mexico. Ted Cruz is already at the forefront and Cornyn is aware as well.

The fact remains that King Barack The Do Eater I will not act unless and until he deems it politically expedient for him to do so..and not a moment sooner..

bimmcorp on June 24, 2014 at 1:06 PM

islam will not rest until only one muslim is left alive. (because muslims resort to murdering muslims when there are no Christians or Jews to murder).

ConstantineXI on June 24, 2014 at 10:09 AM

Correction: there will be two left. One man, and one 6-9 yr old girl for him to marry.

They’re Christians.

I really don’t see any racism here either, to be honest. I don’t think the use of excessive make-up or the critique of the photo has anything to do with race. But that’s just me. And I’m a known racist, myself..

kozanne on June 24, 2014 at 2:12 PM

Also she’s wearing a WHITE DRESS in that photo, with children ALREADY how gauche…..& don’t get me started on that suit….

JFKY on June 24, 2014 at 2:14 PM

I mean this IS where we comment on the styles of the victims, right? Astonerii told me that was what this thread was about.

JFKY on June 24, 2014 at 2:15 PM

“It is interesting to see how people who care so deeply about this couple are willing to spend vast amounts of their time disparaging my unremarkable remark…”

Really didn’t take that long. I’m on hold with my congresscritters offices a lot longer.

kozanne on June 24, 2014 at 2:12 PM

I have done absolutely nothing at all about their situation. While I care more now that they ensnared the husband and kids, I am not about to spend 10 minutes of my life for every victim of islamist hatred. once I hear what they are going to do with the husband and his children, I will have more to think on. Thus far they have not shown a tendency to execute first things. They may actually have broken different laws, so I will wait to see what the reason is.

astonerii on June 24, 2014 at 2:21 PM

The U.S. should just arm the heck the Southern Sudanese Christians and Animist Africans (and the Ethiopians for that matter in relation to Somalia) and give them the green light to conquer the entire country and do with the Muslims there what they will.

We probably get the Japanese to help finance the effort considering the Chinese are the ones trying to get the oil there and are tight with the Sudanese government. The Japanese can pretend they are fighting a proxy war with China…which I am sure would appeal to them.

Instead what is our “super hawks” worried about…Iraq! Should we side with the Shia or the Sunnis…and can we make them love each other. Here is a hint to Bush Republicans…how about help the non-Muslims for once gain their freedom and nations that Islam has stole from them.

For the love of G-d, let’s get these people out of Sudan and back into the US!!!

Shay on June 24, 2014 at 5:27 PM

CNN is saying something different than BBC, that they’ve been detained, not arrested, but nothing about releasing them. I can’t figure out what really is going on.

bimmcorp on June 24, 2014 at 1:41 PM

You would have to go back to his post that I was commenting about. He definitely did bring race into the discussion.

I too am a known ‘racist’ when it comes to the Obamas, Valerie Jarret, Van Jones, et. al.

Sometimes you have to call a spade a spade.

Where ‘assaholii’ went wrong was commenting on his dislike of the photo, instead of the serious matter at hand.

Then, after multiple lame attempts at defending his indefensible post, the idiot still insists on trying to prove that he has one brain cell left after the last time he picked his nose.

Do you realize how stupid you really sound?

You probably didn’t even take 10 minutes to become potty-trained, let alone learning the intricacies of wiping your own a$$, after dropping a load.

You are such a worthless idiot, that I’m just waiting to see what laws of nature were broken that allowed such a dipshit like you to be created.

Shay on June 24, 2014 at 5:27 PM

Judging by your next comment I’d say it’s because you posted a CNN link and they are not permitted here. Not a reliable source or something like that.

slickwillie2001 on June 24, 2014 at 6:21 PM

slickwillie2001 on June 24, 2014 at 6:21 PM

Thanks for letting me know! (I think they mostly ALL suck and are unreliable except for covering zero’s azz).

I’ll see if I can link Breitbart – I agree with Ted Cruz here.

Some news sources are saying they were ‘detained’ rather than arrested and there is some disagreement about whether they have been re-released. I found one source that says they were and have left Sudan, and another that says they’re not allowed to leave Sudan. This has been a day for prayer.

Shay on June 24, 2014 at 6:32 PM

The State Department needs to get the family on a diplomatic transport as soon as possible.

Abso-freaking-lutely! And that “diplomatic transport” should have an escort of Naval fighter aircraft, from a Carrier Battle Group just off-shore. Don’t hash-tag them. Offer to make hash out of them. And be willing to do it… aye, there’s the rub.

Too bad they’re not Presbyterians since that “church” has now embraced teh ghey.

Nutstuyu on June 24, 2014 at 1:11 PM

Well, Christians are supposed to embrace the sinner, just not the sin.
But to your point, the news has it wrong. (Surprise!) Our General Assembly has voted to allow Presbyterian congregations to allow gay marriages. There is absolutely no requirement to perform them, if the minister or that congregation’s Session object. Nor are they required to make the venue available, if they don’t agree. And the whole thing has to be agreed to by a majority of the various Presbyteries before it becomes valid.
So it’s not as far gone as you think.

ReggieA on June 24, 2014 at 10:45 PM

Well, in light of that, your remarks to everyone else are quite….hypocritical.

kozanne on June 24, 2014 at 6:15 PM

Not at all. I am holding them to their own personal standards. I never claimed to give enough care about them that I would waste my time calling my representatives to get them freed. Then again, nothing said they were going to be executed and I stated that I will await more information before I make a decision on how much effort is needed.

Nothing at all hypocritical about that.

astonerii on June 25, 2014 at 8:07 AM

Screw them. GET OUR MARINE OUT OF mexico FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Skullf15 on June 25, 2014 at 6:31 PM

Might be time for a hostage trade. I’d offer Obama and his entire cabinet for the lady and her family. Ok, if they hold out for more I’d toss in Harry Reid.
