Amnesty International has launched a campaign in which they demand the urgent release of Mohamed “Tubak” Adam and Mohamed “El Nana” El Fateh. Both have been subjected to torture while in the custody of the coup forces. Now you can help get them released.
Amnesty International has launched a campaign in which they demand the release of Mohamed “Tubak” Adam (17) and Mohamed El Fateh (18), who have been detained since January 14 on suspicion of killing a police officer and have been subjected to severe torture.
A statement from the coup forces informed about the following: Brigadier General Ali Bareema Hamad, “fell martyr while doing his duties and securing protests” in the capital Khartoum.
Ali Bareema Hamad “received deadly stabs by groups of protesters..in different parts of his body,” police spokesman Idris Abdalla Idris told. The statement was made on Facebook.
Brigadier General Ali Bareema Hamad was the first fatality announced among coup forces since protests calling for a return to civilian rule began. He died under unclear circumstances. Various local sources reported on social media that Ali Bareema Hamad was killed a week before.
Mohammed “Tubac” Adam and Mohammed al-Fatih’s arrests were carried out one day after Sudan’s Ministry of Interior released a brief statement announcing the killing of a Police Brigadier during protests in Khartoum, on 13 January.
The young boys have been subjected to severe beatings and electric shocks.
Amnesty said: “There are credible concerns the youths were abducted and held without charge, in violation of their due process rights, and subjected to torture while in detention.”
According to their lawyer, Rana Abdulghafar Abdulraheem, she had seen cigarette burns on Fateh’s head and he had not been allowed visitors. “I believe they didn’t want us to see him because he was in bad shape,” she said.
Tupac’s mother, Nidal Sulieman, said her son had problems with his blood pressure but had not been allowed to see a doctor or to take medicine since his arrest.
Amnesty International says in a statement that “there are credible concerns the youths were abducted and held without charge, in violation of their due process rights, and subjected to torture while in detention. The Sudanese authorities must release them unless they are charged and remanded by an independent court.”
Amnesty International has published a Template Letter that can be sent to the Attorney General to ask for the detainees’ immediate release.
