He was taken to Talodi military basewhere he has been held incommunicado for one week before his release. On 3 rd November 2022, Mr. Hamid Ramadan was unconditionally released by SAF without being interrogated or told reasons why he was arrested. HUDO Centre is very concerned about the situation of civilians in SK State andcalls upon;
· SAF in Talodi to stop arrest civilians arbitrarily.
· Sudan government to end the state of emergency in conflict areas which enablesSAF to carry out arrests at will.
· Sudan government to follow the rule of law.
· The SAF and authorities in South Kordufan State/ Nuba Mountains to investigate the circumstances around Mr. Hamid’s arrest by SAF Talodi and to make the findings public.
