(CNN) — A Sudanese Christian woman who was sentenced to die for refusing to renounce her faith — and then released — has been charged on two criminal counts after trying to leave the African country for the United States, her legal team said Wednesday.
Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, who was detained with her American husband, Daniel Wani, and their two children at an airport in Khartoum on Tuesday, is accused of traveling with falsified documents and giving false information, according to her legal team.
The family is currently being held in a Khartoum police station and has been refused bail.
Ibrahim’s legal team told CNN that Daniel Wani is being held as an accessory.
The family was stopped at the airport after what Ibrahim’s lawyers described Tuesday as an alleged “irregularity with her documentation.”
