A.     whereas in August 2013, a relative of Meriam Ibrahim claimed that that Ibrahim's marriage to Mr. Wani, a Christian, constituted adultery; Mr Wani is accused of converting a Muslim, leading Ibrahim to also be accused of adultery


B.     whereas on the 4th March, Sudan's Public Order Court in El Haj Yousif in Khartoum North charges Meriam Ibrahim with apostasy and adultery; she is transferred to the Omdurman Federal Women's Prison with her 20-month-old son Martin; on April 30, Meriam Ibrahim is convicted of all charges and is given 15 days to recant her beliefs

C.     whereas on the 11th May, Meriam Ibrahin, now pregnant with her second child, is sentenced by the El Haj Yousif Public Order Court in Khartoum, Sudan, to 100 lashes and death by hanging


D.     whereas on the 27th May, Meriam Ibrahim gives birth to a baby girl, Maya, in prison; it is alleged that Ibrahim's legs were kept in shackles and chains while she was in labour.


E.     whereas on the 23rd June, Meriam Ibrahim is released from prison; on the 24th June Meriam Ibrahim and her husband were arrested at a Sudanese airport as they sought to leave the country with their two children


F.     whereas Sudan has acceded to the Arab Charter on Human Rights and whereas article 27 guarantees that persons from all religions have the right to practice their faith


G.     whereas since the separation of South Sudan and the Republic of Sudan, government support for Christianity has been vastly reduced and whereas there have been allegations of economic inducements aimed at non- Muslims to convert to Islam

6.      Stresses concern that on trying to leave Sudan for the United States of America, Meriam Ibrahim, her husband and two young children were detained at Khartoum airport on grounds that Ibrahim's travel documents were invalid; asks that the Sudanese authorities review Meriam Ibrahim's case thoroughly and explain why her and her family were detained;

7.      Notes with concern the continued and frequent violation of women's rights in Sudan notebly Article 152 of Sudan’s criminal code; urges the Sudanese authorities to expediently sign and ratify the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women
