Military Intelligence officers beat up man in North Darfur
Members of the Military Intelligence severely beat a man in Ailliet Jarelnabi, North Darfur, on Wednesday.
Izzeldin Adam Abakar told Dabanga that he went to the Ailliet army garrison on Wednesday morning, to ask about the reason for the detention of his brother Musa, some days before.
“The officers took me to a room, and started to beat me, until I was covered in blood. They then threw me out,” he said.
In Nyala, capital of South Darfur, police sergeant Adam Hussein entered into a hunger strike, in protest for not being taken to trial. He has been accused of embezzling the salaries of the South Darfur state police retirees, and was detained in August last year.
In a statement, Hussein's family called on police officials and human rights organisations to intervene, and bring their relative to justice.
