THE ARREST OF MR. ELSAFI ELDEGAIN BY SAF IN ALERI GHAREIB SUDAN – UPDATE (2)

HUDO Centre No. H.K/UA/22/020
Date: 9th June 2020
UPDATE (2)
THE ARREST OF MR. ELSAFI ELDEGAIN BY SAF IN ALERI GHAREIB, SUDAN

About two (2) months, Mr. Elsafi Eldegain was arrested and held incommunicado by military in Talodi. He was not presented before courts of law or set free. No reason was given for his arrest and he is likely to be undergoing torture. Since Mr. Elsafi was arrested on 11th April 2020, he has been held incommunicado regardless of his family’s many attempts to visit him and being denied by military intelligence. He was arrested from his house in Aleri Ghareib on 11th April 2020 and deported the following day (12th April 2020) to Talodi military base. His prolong detention and stopping visitors from accessing him causes fear that he could be undergoing torture. Unconfirmed information saying that, Mr. Elsafi was deported from Talodi military base to Kadogli military base. HUDO is very concerned about Mr. Elsafi’s arrest and calls upon;
· Sudan government to immediately disclose the cause of Mr. Elsafi Eldegain’s arrest.
· The military Authorities in Talodi to allow his family and lawyers to visit him.
· Sudan government to unconditionally release or send him to courts of law.
· Sudan government to end the state of emergency which enables SAF and its militias to carry out arrests at will against civilians.
· Sudan government to stop any kind of discriminative acts towards the citizens from conflict areas.
· Sudan government to respect its international obligations towards their citizens.
