     HUDO Centre is very concerned about the safety of civilians in Sudan during this difficult period of fighting between SAF and RSF and calls for the following:

  •  The Blue Nile State governor (head of security committee) to immediately stop incarceration orders and release Mr. Ali Hajo since there is no legal case against him.
  •  The governor of Blue Nile State to revoke the security law that is violating the rights of citizens.
  •  SAF in Blue Nile to release Mr. Ali Hajo unconditionally and any other civilians that could be under their detention.
  •  The prosecutor in Blue Nile State to investigate the circumstance behind Mr. Hajo’s arrest and make the findings public.
