The Revd Hassan Abduraheem Kodi Taour and Abdulmonem Abdumawla were finally set free, having been held in jail since December 2015 when they were first accused of ‘espionage’. The two men were given a presidential pardon. The Czech aid worker arrested with the two Sudanese Christians, Petr Jacek, was pardoned in March.
