Dear Mr. President,
Right now, three Christian men are sitting in a Sudan prison. One is a Nuba pastor, one is a Darfuri student, and one is a European Christian aid worker.
Czech national Petr Jasek was found guilty of “espionage” and other ungrounded crimes and sentenced to LIFE IN PRISON. Rev. Hassan Abdelrahim Kodi, and Abdelmoneim Abdelmoula, were each given 12-year sentences for “aiding” Jasek; but the only “crime” these men have committed 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 Islamists listen 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.
