The 1st defendant was released on 26th February 2017, basing on the presidential amnesty issued by Sudan president/ Omer Albashir. The amnesty was a result of communication between the two states of Sudan and Czech Republic as well as the subsequent visit of Czech Republic’s foreign affair minster to Khartoum, Sudan. For the 2nd and 3rd defendants, their lawyers’ panel applied to the court of appeal on 9th February 2017. From the time the application was made to the court of appeal, there had been unnecessary delays. On 9th April 2017 (after two months), the court of appeal constituted the committee of Judges to scrutinize (examine) the application.
