An activist, Mr. Mohamed Al-Dosogy, is in trouble for attempting to dump Islam for atheism in Sudan.
He was arrested last Monday, two days after he requested a judge to allow him to change his religion to atheism, a move that was tantamount to renouncing his faith.
Article 126 of Sudan’s 1991 Penal Code imposes the death penalty on offenders found guilty of apostasy.
However, a judge on Thursday issued a decision dismissing the case and ordering his release.
The judge said the defendant had been examined by a psychiatric and it was determined that he is mentally incompetent to stand trial.
However, the defense team on Friday rejected the decision, saying the defendant never asked the court to submit him to a psychiatric test.
The case has attracted social media comments as Reem @ReemWrites tweeted “ If Ahmed Al-Desouqi’s case goes to court, he will face the death penalty under article 126 of the criminal act (on Apostasy)
