At a 30 August court hearing against four Christians in Darfur accused of apostasy, the judge referred the case back to the public prosecutor’s office.
As MEC previously reported, the four men were arrested on 22 June following a raid on a Baptist church building in Zallengei. They were physically mistreated while detained and subsequently accused of apostasy – even though the law criminalising apostasy was abolished in 2019.
The 30 August hearing the judge had to decide whether to let the case go to court, dismiss it, or refer the charges back to the public prosecutor’s office.
The men remain in hiding in fear of further harassment.
- for the prosecutor’s office to dismiss the case
- for our brothers to be encouraged and know God’s peace
- for harassment of Christians in Sudan to stop
