Following the detention of Hossam El Sayad (21) by ‘security forces’ on 21 July, Sudan’s Emergency Lawyers and El Sayad’s family are trying to determine his whereabouts.

According to the lawyers, there has been a lot of conflicting information about his exact location from the Criminal Investigations Branch.

In a statement yesterday, they called on the Public Prosecution to implement their powers and oblige the “police, security and military intelligence agencies to reveal his whereabouts”.

Emergency Lawyers hold the security forces responsible for El Sayad’s safety and the circumstances of his disappearance.
