After all, as Sarah Mathewson, Anti-Slavery International's Africa coordinator, noted in an email to me from nearby Niger, news of this case is bound to deter others being held from trying to escape.
"The majority of women in slavery have children outside of marriage, partly because they are so often raped by their masters, or encouraged into sexual relationships from a young age but denied the right to marry formally," Mathewson wrote.
Mathewson told me she hasn't heard of other cases of women who were liberated from slavery in Mauritania being charged with similar crimes. But in a highly publicized case, a woman in Niger, Hadijatou Mani, successfully sued for her freedom after escaping slavery and initially being sentenced to six months in prison for the crime of bigamy.
I hope for a similar turnabout for Mbeirika Mint M'bareck, whose name roughly means "blessed" but is interpreted as "lucky charm" in the Mauritanian context, according to Mathewson. The naming convention is "very much a way of diminishing and objectifying them," she said.

Betiel Baraki has taken on the role of Campaigns and Outreach Officer, and Sarah Mathewson is our new Campaigns and Policy Officer.
Sarah Mathewson has spent the last few years as the Africa Programme Coordinator at Anti-Slavery International, where she continues to work on a part-time basis. She manages programmes aimed at eradicating descent-based slavery (a form of slavery that mainly affects women), forced marriage and forced child begging in West Africa. Prior to joining Anti-Slavery, Sarah worked for Child Soldiers International and Human Rights Watch. She also lived in Senegal for several years, during which she worked for the Department of Social and Human Sciences at UNESCO. Sarah holds an MSc from the London School of Economics and an MA from the University of Edinburgh. She is currently based in London.
Both Betiel and Sarah are passionate, dedicated feminists, who will be a real asset to OBJECT, and who will develop and spread the word about our work, and we are delighted to welcome them to the team!
Our new team members, Betiel Baraki and Sarah Mathewson, spoke to a packed hall about our campaigns, and in particular our work against media sexism following the Leveson Inquiry, and about sexism and racism in music videos.
