(Washington, DC) - The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) said today reports the Meriam Ibrahim, her husband, and their two young children have been taken into custody by Sudanese officials is “deeply troubling” and said it will pursue their freedom and return to the United States.  The news comes just one day after Sudan released Meriam and her two children from prison. Today, her attorney reports that the Christian mother, her husband – a U.S. citizen – and their two American kids were taking into custody at the airport. According to reports, Meriam’s re-arrest came without warning and no reason was given.

“This is a deeply troubling development,” said Jordan Sekulow, Executive Director of the ACLJ. “The decision to take the entire family into custody is a violation of international law and we call on Sudan to release them without delay. Meriam and her family’s fate are now unclear.  We have launched a global campaign on Meriam’s behalf. Now, we must focus on pressuring Sudan to release her and the family and permit them to return to the United States. Time is of the essence. We must apply immediate international pressure to free Meriam and her family. And we must urge the Obama Administration to grant Meriam and her American kids safe passage and immediate legal status in the United States.”

The ACLJ has launched a petition to pressure Sudan to release Meriam and her family and permit them to return to the United States.
Led by ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, the ACLJ is based in Washington, D.C.
