Johnnie Moore, one of the members of the delegation, tells CBN News that the new government has finalized a constitutional declaration which no longer references Islam as the primary source of law.
The government has repealed laws that gave security forces the authority to enforce religious moral teachings. Leaders also plan to change the apostasy and blasphemy laws in the criminal code.
That’s a dramatic change from the rule of 30-year dictator Omar al-Bashir who enforced strict Islamic laws and persecuted Christians and other religious minorities.
Sudan’s dictator was deposed in a coup earlier this year by the Sudanese Armed Forces. He is currently being held in Khartoum’s Kobar prison. Last month, the new government said it would transfer al-Bashir to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands to be tried for “inciting and participating in” the killing of protestors.
