Sudan: Layla Ibrahim Issa - Another woman sentenced to death by stoning. Take action now!

July 21, 2012

Update: Layla has been released!

The Court of Appeals handling Layla’s case has dropped the sentence of stoning, and changed the charge to “egregious acts”, for which it was determined Layla had spent enough time in prison. Our Sudanese networkers are still monitoring the situation, in order to ensure that the changed charges do not result in further violations of Layla’s rights, or those of her child. For now, Layla Ibrahim Issa is free, and not facing any further prison time. We will continue to keep you posted on any developments for Layla, or other similar cases in Sudan. We are grateful to everyone who took part in this action, and extend thanks on behalf of our Sudanese sisters as well, who believe the international advocacy by the diverse groups and individuals who joined to call to action had a huge and positive impact on the Court’s decision.

Sudan: Stop Stoning of Intisar Sharif Abdallah

June 1, 2012

Women Living Under Muslim Laws (WLUML) and the Violence Is Not Our Culture (VNC) campaign call on Sudanese authorities to stop the execution of a woman condemned to stoning for alleged adultery. Intisar was accused of having a relationship and becoming pregnant by a man who was not her husband. She was found guilty after an “admission of guilt” following torture and brutal beatings by her brother who instigated the case. According to reports, Intisar did not have access to a lawyer during her trial, and her accused lover remains un-convicted and walks free. To take action, please write immediately in Arabic, English or your own language to the authorities listed below.
