International Christian Concern needs your help! Please join us and raise your voice in defense of three men who have been wrongfully convicted of numerous charges by the Sudanese government. Their crime? Providing money for medical care to a man who had once demonstrated against the Sudanese government.
Petr Jasek, a Czech national, was given a 20 year sentence, while two other men, Reverend Abudraheem and Mr. Abdumawla were given ten year sentences each. Other convictions included three and a half years and 100,000 Sudanese Pound fine for entering and photographing military areas, inciting hatred between sects, propagation of false news, entering the country illegally, and violating Articles 8 and 23 of Sudan’s Volunteer Act. The other two gentlemen were also given additional two year sentences for inciting hatred between sects and for propagation of false news. These sentences are to run consecutively.
We ask you to join us in petitioning the government of Sudan for the immediate and unconditional release of three Christian men! Sign and share the petition today!
Petition to Release Three Christian Men Imprisoned in Sudan!
This case arose when Mr. Jasek gave a gift of $5,000 to a Darfuri student for medical care after he was injured in a student demonstration in 2013. The Sudanese government framed their prosecution that this was actually aid to rebel movements throughout Sudan and that Mr. Jasek and the other men’s actions were crimes against the state, rather than the purely humanitarian act that it was.
For Mr. Jasek’s act of compassion, he, along with the two other men, now faces a wrongful and lengthy prison sentences. Please help these men by signing on to our petition and making your voice heard!
