She was first imprisoned in January 2014, over charges of apostasy, for rejecting her estranged father’s Muslim faith, and adultery, for marrying a Christian, American citizen Daniel Wani. She was sentenced to death in May earlier this year and was forced to give birth to her daughter in prison, with shackles on her feet.

However, later in June, she was set free following an international campaign for her release, but was initially prevented from leaving Sudan. She finally managed to leave in July.

Meriam says she wants to campaign for religious freedom worldwide, and hopes to return to Sudan one day.
