The prosecutor brought four defendants unlisted, which made the total number (89) instead of (85), however HUDO got strong information about other detainees in Elrosearis prison, the prosecutor planning to add them to this trials.
  • The court now involving in violating detainees rights by keeping them long in jail without taking any design on them.
  • The court sessions of declaring the charges by judge on 8th July 2013 is very important and it is joint court sessions. These sessions will discover the court minding.
  • There are some among the defendants are members in (NCP) and never related to SPLM/N, but they are targeted ethnically (etc. Elsheikh Ali Elnour, NCP member, public police member, Angasana tribe).
