Lubna Hussein freed, but only as a way to stop her challenging the law.
The fine (200$) was paid without her knowledge by the Journalist Union, which is headed by a member of the ruling party. (!?).
Mohieddin Titawi, the head of the Journalist Union, said he paid the fine out of duty toward a member of the union. "I didn't get permission from the government or from Lubna," he said from Khartoum. "I know my duty very well and I intervened to get a journalist out of prison".
Lubna Ahmed Hussein told the BBC she did not want to "give the verdict any legitimacy" by paying the fine.
