                                                                                 Update (4) COURT TRIAL OF AL-SANADRA CASE

The court of appeal ruled that, the decision by Khartoum North court should be maintained (upheld). This was in response to the objections/ appeal by the military’s legal consultant. The judge/justice announced 29th November for the coming court session. Consequences The military’s legal consultant had earlier challenged and appealed the court order of “confining the two soldiers amongst the defendants in a civilian prison/ Kober prison”. The Court of Appeal made its ruling whereby his objection was overruled / rejected and the Khartoum North court’s decision was maintained/ upheld. The judge/justice announced in the absence of all parties that the next court session will be conducted on 29th November 2017.But court police informed the lawyers of the two parties via phone calls.

Recommendations HUDO urges all the concerned, especially:
§ The Sudan court to conduct the trial fairly
§ The activists and defendants’ supporters to keep on attending court sessions
§ The diplomatic missions and embassies to observe the court sessions
§ The Sudan and international media to give full coverage for the court
