A criminal case has been reopened against eight Sudanese church leaders who refused to give up control of their church to an unelected government-appointed committee. 

Christian Solidarity Worldwide reports that the case involves members of the Sudanese Church of Christ executive committee who were charged with trespassing at the church's headquarters. 

The eight pastors from the predominantly Nuban denomination were arrested in August 2017. Among them were SCOC Moderator Ayoub Mattan and SCOC head of missions Kuwa Shamaal.
