From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Sudanese women issue rights warning
Friday 20 July 2012
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.
