4 Children Arrested

The coup authorities continue with their arbitary abuse of the own population. In Port Sudan, 4 children arrested at a rally were charged under article 77 (Public nuisance) of the Sudanese Criminal Act 1991.

According to a report from the African Center for Justice and Peace Studies, the coup authorities, under the rule of al-Burhan, continue with their arbitary abuse of the own population.

Authorities have continued to charge and prosecute peaceful protesters under articles of 69 (disturbance of public peace) and 77 (public nuisance) of Sudanese Criminal Act 1991 for participating in protests.

In Port Sudan, a human rights defender was charged under article 77 (Public nuisance) and 99 (Obstructing public servant from performing the duties of his office) of the Sudanese Criminal Act 1991 after being arrested at a rally.

Also in Port Sudan, 4 children arrested at a rally were charged under article 77 (Public nuisance) of the Sudanese Criminal Act 1991 and allegedly subjected to beating and hair shaving before their release.

The brutality by coup forces against civilians, regardless of age, during dispersal of protest gatherings raises concerns for the respect of right to life.

ACJPS documented the killing of eight peaceful protesters between 14 February and 10 March 2022 in Omdurman and Khartoum.
