Dear Mr. President,
Right now, four Christian men are on trial for their lives in Khartoum. Two are Nuba pastors, one is a Darfuri student, and one is a European Christian aid worker.
Rev. Hassan Abdelrahim Kodi, Rev. Kuwa Shemaal, Abdelmoneim Abdelmoula, and Czech national Petr Jasek stand accused of several crimes against the State; but their only “crime” is standing in solidarity with the persecuted church in Sudan.
We have seen the brutality of the Islamist regime in Khartoum in the trial of Miriam Ibrahim, who was under sentence of death in 2014 for allegedly “converting” to Christianity. She was only released after intense international pressure.
It seems the only voices the government in Khartoum listens to are not of reason or of human rights and dignity, but those of political pressure.
We ask that you please intervene and exert your influence on behalf of the men who are imprisoned, demand that they be released, and that Omar al Bashir’s government begin to respect the basic human right of conscience for all Sudanese citizens.
The Sudan Government has been desperately trying to gain “normalized” relations with the West and end long-standing sanctions. They need to be told in no uncertain terms will “normalization” occur while people are targeted, imprisoned, tortured, and otherwise persecuted for their ethnicity, political affiliation, or religious faith.
