Sudanese women issue rights warning

Friday 20 July 2012

A Sudanese women’s group in Britain is urging the government to help protect human rights in Sudan.

The Sudanese Women Pressure Group wrote to Prime Minister David Cameron last week explaining how things were getting worse in the east African state, particularly for women.

Wars in Darfur, the Blue Nile and southern Kordofan regions have led to thousands of women being killed, tortured and gang raped.

And under the Public Order Law thousands more have been flogged in public – violating Sudan‘s constitution.

The group also highlighted the plight of Jaleela Khamees and Alawiyya Kibaida, who have been locked up without charge for months and aren’t allowed legal help.

  1. Sudanese troops shoot protesters

    Soldiers shot and killed at least eight anti-government protesters in Nyala, capital of the Darfur region of Sudan, on Tuesday of last week. The demonstration against price rises was led by students and school students.

    Activists say 12 were killed and 80 injured. Workers at a local hospital say victims were shot at close range with military automatic rifles and heavy machine guns. Demonstrations against president Omar al-Bashir’s regime have continued since June.

  3. Government: conflict damaged oil fields

    SOUTH SUDAN: The government warned today that it could take up to a year to restart oil production in some of its oil fields due to damage during military clashes in April.

    South Sudan inherited around 75 per cent of Sudan’s oil production when it became an independent country last July.

    But the south must export its oil through pipelines in Sudan and the two have been unable to agree on fees.

    South Sudan shut down its oil production in January after accusing Sudan of stealing its oil exports.
