Meriam Ibrahim, 26, was sentenced Thursday after being convicted of apostasy. The court in Khartoum ruled that Ibrahim must give birth and nurse her baby before being executed, but must receive 100 lashes immediately after having her baby for adultery — for having relations with her Christian husband. Until then, her 20-month-old son, Martin Wani, must live inside the prison cell with her and the new baby when it arrives. Since Sudan sees her only as a Muslim, they refuse to acknowledge her marriage to a Christian man. Therefore, the court was also able to charge Meriam with adultery. Reports claim that the Sudanese government will not allow Martin’s father to care for him while Meriam is in prison. In the meantime, Meriam’s husband, Daniel Wani, is desperately fighting for their freedom.
