Pastor Hassan Convicted in Sudan

By ACLJ.org1485889041308

We just received urgent news out of Sudan regarding the fate of Pastor Hassan Abduraheem who is on trial for false charges relating to his Christian faith.

The judge issued his verdict in the case on Sunday, and it is devastating news for Pastor Hassan.  Pastor Hassan received a 12-year sentence on the grounds of espionage, inciting strife between communities, and spreading rumors that undermine respect for the state.

This sentence is particularly disturbing for the future of religious freedom and the rule of law in Sudan, as Pastor Hassan and others were originally arrested on false charges in late 2015.   The men attended a Christian conference in Addis Ababa, Ethopia in November 2015 and the charges against them stem from financial aid given to an injured young man who was also attending the conference.  The men were simply living out their Christian faith by helping a young man in need of medical attention, but the Sudanese security forces falsely claimed that their charity masked a sinister agenda to support rebel forces.

Pastor Hassan now has 15 days to file an appeal to his conviction.  Please be in prayer for Pastor Hassan and his family as he remains imprisoned in harsh conditions.

We will continue to fight for the freedom of Pastor Hassan.  We have sent legal letters to the Vice President of Sudan along with the Sudanese Minister of Justice voicing our grave concern for the plight of Pastor Hassan and numerous violations of international law in this case.  We will continue to bring this injustice to the attention of the international community, and demand justice for persecuted Christians in Sudan.
