The Daily News is reporting that Mia Farrow has offered to take the place of a political prisoner being held in Sudan, who is in desperate need of medical attention due to an existing stomach condition that has grown worse.

Suleiman Jamous, who has tried in the past to help bring peace to the war torn region, has been confined to his base for over a year and now is in desperate need of a stomach operation that could possibly save his life. The Sudanese government has threatened to detain him if he leaves the base to seek medical attention; this grabbed Ms. Farrow’s notice.

In a letter to the president of Sudan Ms. Farrow asked that she be held in his place so that he can receive the medical attention he needs. “I am therefore offering … to exchange my freedom for his,” said Farrow in a letter to Sudan’s President Omar Hassan al-Bashir. “[I know] he will apply his energies toward creating the just and lasting peace.”

Ms. Farrow is a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF and has visited Darfur several times. Her unusual offer has not been acknowledged to this point.
