Skip to comments.Meriam Ibrahim's Muslim Relatives Trying to Prove She is Muslim; Lawsuit Could Delay Departure to US
Posted on 07/05/2014 7:13:17 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Sudanese Christian mother Meriam Ibrahim is facing a new lawsuit after her Islamic relatives submitted a case on Thursday trying to prove that she is a Muslim, which would make her marriage to a Christian man illegal under Islamic Shariah Law. The lawsuit could further delay Ibrahim's hopes to travel with her husband and children to the U.S. and seek refuge.
Abdel Rahman Malek, the lawyer hired by Ibrahim's Muslim family, said that the Khartoum Religious Court will be reviewing their case "asking to prove that Meriam Ibrahim belongs to her (Muslim) father and family," according to Reuters.
The 27-year-old woman was spared the death penalty after an appeals court overturned the sentence in June, which was originally imposed on her for marrying a Christian South Sudanese-American. Ibrahim was briefly detained last week following her release from prison, with Sudan's government accusing her of attempting to travel with falsified South Sudanese documents.
After being released from custody, Ibrahim has been staying at the U.S. embassy in Khartoum along with her husband, Daniel Wani, and two young children.
Meriam's lawyer Mohaned Mostafa added that the Christian woman has not yet been notified of the lawsuit against her.

Good Gawd those “people” are horrible.
Sounds like a countersuit is in order.
Her muslim father ABANDONED the family before she was born. She was raised by her mother, and claims she is a Christian because of her upbringing.
NOT under Islamic law though. You take the religion of your father whether you like it or not.
RE: Sounds like a countersuit is in order.
This is SUDAN, not the USA.
Islam is patently evil...
If this woman and her family were Mestizo Illegal Aliens, Obama and GOP would have them here already
The woman’s husband is an American Citizen.
That explains Zero.
If they win the lawsuit or even if they don’t and get custody of her, they will kill her for their “Honor”.
“Zero” meaning Obama.
His FATHER was a Muzz.
Sudan or not, the so-called family should be kicked to the curb.
(How many MOABs does it take to convince an Islamist country? That's a question I hope to hear more and more often now that ISIS has claimed that it is now a country.)
Can’t somebody just smuggle her the hell out of there? What is this?
as was Soetoro’s adoptive stepfather.
I believe Obama has every intention of allowing this woman’s muslim family to murder her. They will also attempt to get custody of her children and raise them as muslims.
He could have had her out of there months ago. Actions speak louder than word and this regime is aiding and abetting muslim evil and rule all over the world. The man is a closet muslim, without question.
Stanley could have been an atheist, a “christian”, a Buddhist, or a Hindu and it wouldn’t have made any difference at all.
Yes. I agree with you about that.
Helicopter them out. A few gunships as escort.
Cut off all foreign and relief aid to Sudan. Let them stew in their own juices!
