Sudan: NISS campaign of arrests nets opposition leaders, activists

Yesterday, the security and intelligence forces continued a large-scale campaign of arrest of activists and leaders of political forces from their homes and chased and prosecuted youths and women during demonstrations and protests demanding the step-down of Al Bashir and his regime from the government.

Yesterday, the security forces arrested lawyer and prominent law and human rights defender Kamal El Jazuli from his office in Khartoum and transferred him to an unknown destination.

The arrest of Kamal El Jazuli also coincided with the arrest of Mariam Mahjoub Sharif and Sarah Ibrahim.

Activists published massively on social networking sites the names of dozens of detainees arrested in various areas in Khartoum, in conjunction with the announcement by security director Salah Gosh about the release of the detainees.

Sudanese Professionals Association

The Sudanese Professionals Association and opposition forces signatory to the Declaration of Freedom and Change pointed out in a joint statement that the detention of the NISS is still crowded with professionals, politicians, and honourable citizens.

The statement said that the play to release the detainees will not fool the inside or the outside, and that the regime knows that the liberals will get out of the prisons to the streets and that the ceiling is not the release of political detainees, but the demolition of the project and its legislators.

It stressed that the release of the detainees will not restore the lives of the martyrs and the sacrifices of the Sudanese since the coming of the Al Bashir regime.
