Persecution Update: Two Pastors Face Prosecution in Sudan

Sudan remains one of the most difficult places in the world to be a Christian. Once again, two pastors face prosecution there on false charges.

Sudan frees one pastor, plans to prosecute two others 

Just weeks after releasing one pastor, Sudanese officials may prosecute two others for crimes that could carry the death penalty. One of the pastors has been detained illegally without charges since December. Officials rearrested another on May 24.

According to Middle East Concern, Sudanese Intelligence officials (NISS) arrested Pastor Kuwa Shamal of the Sudan Church of Christ (SCC) again this month. Officials first arrested Shamal and two other pastors in December. They detained him then for three days before releasing him. He still hasn’t been formally charged.

NISS also arrested Rev. Hassan Abduraheem Kodi Taour in December. He was imprisoned and denied family or legal visits until late May.

About Julia

Here's what you might like to know about me. My name is Julia and I'm a Christian. I love the Bible and, much less importantly, a good steak. My goal with this site is to share the truth of scripture with believer and non-believer alike, and to specifically encourage believers to study and know the Bible, and warn them of false teachings in and around the church. Romans 1:16-17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, the just shall live by faith."
