‘Rebel prisoners treated inhumanely’: JEM

October 21 - 2014 PORT SUDAN

Five members of the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) detained in Kober prison in Khartoum, were transported to the prison of Port Sudan on Saturday.

Jibril Adam Bilal, the spokesman for the rebel movement, described the way they were treated by administration of the Port Sudan prison as “inhumane, shameful, and outrageous”. He informed Radio Dabanga that “upon their arrival at the prison, their hands and feet were shackled, after which they were placed in solitary confinement”.

Bilal appealed to human rights organisations to stop the abuse of Haisam Adam Ali, Ishag Ali Yasin Adam, Mohamed Hashim Ali Abdu, Elhaji Mohamed Sharif, and Abu Bakr Ibrahim Sharif.
