Sudan: EI expresses relief at the release of UK teacher
The President of Sudan, Omar al Bashir, granted the teacher full pardon for what is now considered "an unfortunate and unintentional misunderstanding". EI credits the National Union of Teachers (NUT), of which Mrs Gibbons is a member, for its role in securing her release. The NUT was in constant contact with the UK Foreign Ministry and kept EI informed of the developments in the case. EI thanks all those who contacted us to express their support for Gibbons. EI also expresses its appreciation for the discretion of member organisations that refrained from making public statements that might have complicated the sensitive negotiations for Gibbons' release.
