Sudanese woman sentenced to death now banned from leaving the country & charged with new crimes

Meriam Ibrahim ,the Sudanese woman who was sentenced to death for being a Christian was has been released from her latest detention but has been charged with new crimes..Mailonline reports...

Contrary to reports that she has been freed and allowed to go,Meriam has been accused of falsifying travel documents which she tried to leave Sudan with.. The authorities are saying she was supposed to use the Muslim name she had when she was born, not the Christian name she adopted.The new allegations are a huge setback to Meriam's hopes of leaving Sudan and a further sign that the Sudanese government is playing twisted games over her release.

She is on bail which was put up by a friend and as part of the conditions,cannot leave Sudan until this matter is resolved .Meriam and husband Daniel were taken into custody by the feared National Intelligence and Security Services(NISS),notorious for taking prisoners to secret 'ghost houses' where they are tortured.
Daniel’s brother Gabriel, a naturalized American citizen who lives in Manchester told MailOnline:

‘This is very concerning. It’s bad news. They should be let go as soon as possible. My brother wanted to get out of Sudan as fast as he could, and now this has happened’.
