A vigil carried out by the families and supporters of detainees in front of the headquarters of the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) in Khartoum was dispersed by the same security forces on Thursday morning.
The protesters demanded the release of prominent human rights activist Dr. Mudawi Ibrahim, his chauffeur Adam El Sheikh and his accountant Nora Obeid, who have been held incommunicado at the NISS headquarters since 7 December 2016. Charges against them are unknown.
Ibrahim’s wife, journalist Sabah Mohamed Adam, told Radio Dabanga yesterday that the vigil had lasted for ten minutes when security agents broke up the gathering. “They used force to break us up and tore up the banners, which carried slogangs to demand Mudawi’s release. “Their families have not been allowed to visit them and aren’t informed about the reasons of their detention.”
After the vigil Mohamed Adam submitted a memorandum to the Sudanese Commission on Human Rights about the arrest of her husband. The memo states that the commission has a week to respond before the demonstration against the detention “escalate.” “I’m concerned about his health in detention and that he might be tortured.”
