Meriam Ibrahim’s Family Drops Lawsuit

Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.

The family of Meriam Ibrahim, who had brought a lawsuit in an attempt to have her declared a Muslim by Sudanese courts, announced they have dropped their lawsuit.

The development could allow the persecuted Christian woman to finally leave the country with her husband and two children for the United States.

Attorney Abdel Rahman Malek would not give a reason that the family was dropping the suit.

The Sudanese government is still holding charges over Ibrahim’s head that she tried to leave the country on false travel documents; however, the family’s attorney says he has evidence to show that the papers are legal under international law.

A New York City area church said this week they would be willing to provide housing, food and other necessities to Ibrahim and her family so they could begin a new life in the United States.

The Sudanese government has not responded to multiple requests from American groups and political leaders to release the family.
