Meriam Ibrahim was released on
Before her short release, the Prime Minister, the Secretary of State for International Development, my right hon. Friend Justine Greening, and I had all issued statements calling for Meriam Ibrahim to be released immediately. We also raised our concerns directly with the Government of Sudan: my colleague Lynne Featherstone with the Sudanese Foreign Minister; and our ambassador in Khartoum with other Ministers and senior officials. We will continue to press for her freedom.
