Two Sudanese families are concerned for the continued detention of their daughters, a lawyer and an accountant, by the Sudanese security service, in the lingering case against the detained Dr Mudawi Ibrahim. University students held a protest against his detention on Sunday.
The father of lawyer Tasneem Ahmed Taha El Zaki, detained since 26 December, told Radio Dabanga that he has been inquiring with the Sudanese Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) what is the reason for his daughter’s arrest. He demands to be allowed to visit her. El Zaki is held in Khartoum. “The security apparatus has allowed me to visit her twice during the three months of detention.”
He added that she was transferred to the state security prosecution last week, where she was detained as a witness who had communication with the also detained human rights defender Dr Mudawi Ibrahim.
Meanwhile Nazik Obeid, the sister of accountant Nura Obeid Osman, an accountant for a firm owned by Mudawi, told this station that their family managed to visit Nura for the first time 45 days after her arrest. A second visit was allowed two months after her arrest.
