A Sudanese woman sentenced to death for marrying a Christian is expected to be released soon, a government official said.
But Mariam Ibrahim's lawyer said he remained "skeptical" and has not had any confirmation from the courts, Amnesty International spokesperson said.
"The related authorities in the country are working to release Meriam Ibrahim, who was sentenced to death for apostasy, through legal measures," Foreign Ministry Under-Secretary Abdelah Al-Azrak told Reuters.
"I expect her to be released soon," he added.
Mrs Ibrahim was sentenced to death for marrying a Christian man in the country.
A spokesperson for Amnesty International said their researchers have spoken to Mrs Ibrahim's lawyer, who said he has not had any confirmation from the courts.
