Military Intelligence (MI) officers detained two residents of the Armankul camp for the displaced in West Darfur's El Geneina locality last week.

“On Tuesday, a group of MI agents entered Armankul camp and searched a number of homes,” the coordinator of the camp reported to Radio Dabanga.

“They accused Adam Osman Burma (40) and Maryam Adam Hassan (45) of cooperating with the rebel Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) and took them with them to the MI base not far from Armankul.

“They told the camp sheikh who went with some other displaced to the base on Friday, to ask about Burman and Hassan, they were told that they had been transferred to the prison of Ardamata, east of the capital El Geneina.”

The camp coordinator stressed that the two displaced “have nothing to do with JEM, nor with any other political organisation”.
