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.

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.
