JEM prisoners to Port Sudan Six members from Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) have been moved to Port Sudan Prison by Sudan’s Prisons Administration on Friday, 15th November last year. Reliable sources told HUDO that, the six prisoners were moved from Kober Prison in Khartoum North to Port Sudan due to demanding their legitimate rights in the prison. The prisoners; Al Tom Hamid Al Tom, Othman Rabeh Morsal, Mohammed Hashim Ali Adu, Adam Al Nour Abdurrahman Othman, Adam Abdul Kareem Khareef and Olwal Hamad Hamid Kiber have sentenced to death for their participation in Omdurman attacks in 2008, only Al Tom Hamid was prosecuted by Kadugli Criminal Court. Other source who demanded not to be mentioned confirmed the move, saying that, they are humiliating them “they are treated badly there, they are not allowed to bath, going to the toilets is only once a day, they kept them is (1.5x 2) meter cells full of insects”. They stayed in individual isolation for 18 days then brought out with the others in the prison, said the source. However, the prosecuted persons are prisoners of war, and according to Geneva Conversion provisions they should not be charged and must be treated in decent way.
