Deputy Chairman of the Sudanese People Liberation Movement Ismail Jallab called for the country's military council to free arrested activists and appealed to the international community to “not leave Sudan to the Military Council,” during a press conference in Khartoum on Thursday.
Jallab described the arrest of Sudanese People Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) Deputy Chief Yaser Aramn on... Еще Wednesday as “humiliating and barbaric,” as well as a breach of human rights.
Arman, who had recently returned to Khartoum after spending years in exile, was allegedly beaten by armed men before being taken away to an undisclosed location. A comment from the military was not available.
“I appeal to the international community and human rights organisations in the world not to leave Sudan to the Military Council,» he said, adding that “the law is absent in Sudan.”
Sudan was plunged into a political crisis since the overthrow of former president Omar Al-Bashir, following mass protests against his 30-year rule. Thousands of protesters have camped outside the Defence Ministry, demanding a transition from military to civilian rule.
On Monday, Sudanese security forces attacked protesters and killed dozens.
