Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) is thrilled to confirm that Ryan Koher, Eric Dry, and Willem du Plessis, have been granted a provisional release from prison in Mozambique.
Koher, an American pilot, along with two South African missionary volunteers, Willem du Plessis and Eric Dry, also detained, left prison late on Tuesday afternoon. They have been held for more than four months.
They are required to remain in Mozambique and the case is still ongoing. We are continuing to learn more about the next steps in the case from our legal counsel.
The MAF SA team expresses its thanks to all those who have been praying for these men and their families. We ask for continued prayer that the final outcome will be a full release of the men from any charges and trial.
MAF is grateful to the courts in Mozambique for this decision. Out of respect for the legal process in Mozambique, MAF will make no further comment at this time.
