New information on the murder of Sudanese activist
Yesterday, Attorney General Tajelsir El Hibir told Sudan's Blue Nile satellite channel that there is new information on the case of young activist Bahaeldin Nouri, who was abducted, tortured, and killed by offcers of the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) last week.
Last week, unidentified armed men abducted Nouri near his home in El Kalakla. Later, his relatives found his body, which showed visible signs of torture, in Omdurman Teaching Hospital. His death sparked protests in his home district.
Later, the RSF admitted that the death of the activist occurred after he was detained by the militia’s intelligence department and announced that it had detained those who participated in the murder.
The attorney general stated he has taken over the case. An official complaint has been filed to investigate premeditated murder and kidnapping.
He confirmed that the RSF have lifted the immunity of the officers who killed Nouri and that they will be subjected to interrogation on Thursday, before being sentenced.
El Hibir explained that the first autopsy report was very different from the second one, and that a committee has been formed to investigate the reason.
On Tuesday, thousands of people attended the burial of the young activist at the cemetery of El Kalakla in southern Khartoum.
