Port Sudan water activists still detained
The security apparatus of the Red Sea state has continued to detain activists El Mahi Hashim, secretary-general of the civil forces in Port Sudan and Mazin El Amin against the backdrop of the demonstrations in Port Sudan which have lasted for more than a week in protest against the water crisis.
Hashim has reportedly been transferred to the Sudanese capital of Khartoum.
Journalist Amin Sinada told Radio Dabanga: “The authorities did not bring the detainees to trial, were not charged and their families were not allowed to visit them or know their situation”.
He considered this as a blatant violation of their rights as citizens and a clear violation of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.
He called for their immediate release or for a fair trial.
