Redeeming Sudan Slaves

June 02, 2002

Re "Panel Frowns on Efforts to Buy Sudan Slaves' Freedom," May 28: The Times has circulated old, discredited allegations against the only program that has liberated black jihad-slaves in Sudan.

The American Anti-Slavery Group has traveled to Sudan to investigate slavery and slave redemption. We have interviewed redeemed slaves, Arab slave retrievers, local chiefs and church leaders. Our investigations, together with those of other independent researchers, have confirmed that Christian Solidarity International is indeed liberating slaves whom the United Nations agencies and most of the human rights community have betrayed for nearly two decades. CSI merits honor for bringing freedom to so many enslaved women and children.
