(UPDATE 14-03 21:00) Two women and a driver have been released after more than two months arbitrary detention for their activities and communications for human rights defender Dr Mudawi Ibrahim.

Lawyer Tasneem Ahmed Taha El Zaki and accountant Nura Obeid Osman were released in Khartoum on Sunday. The father of El Zaki and the sister of Osman informed this station about the release the same day.

Both detainees were arrested in relation to the case of the detained human rights defender, Dr Mudawi. He remains in prison without any charges laid upon them.

His driver Adam El Sheikh, detained together with Dr Mudawi in early December, was released on Monday, sources informed Radio Dabanga. The previous day El Sheikh's wife told this station that his family has not been allowed to visit him as long as his detention lasted. Mudawi, El Zaki, and Osman have been allowed family visits during their detention.
