A journalist of El Sudani newspaper was interrogated by the Press and Publications Prosecution Office on Sunday, according to the Journalists Association for Human Rights (JAHR).

Journalist Hiba Abdelazim was questioned about an article on corruption in the general elections last April in Khartoum, JAHR wrote in a press release on Sunday.

Abdelazim published several of her findings on the corruption, including that the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) provided privileges to registrants who voted in favour of the NCP.

Her interrogation comes a day after the Sudanese President Omar Al Bashir pledged to allow press freedoms in the country, during the launch of the National Dialogue in Khartoum.

Last September the security apparatus detained Abelazim for two hours for publishing a story about water pollution in the White Nile in Khartoum caused by a military factory, and confiscated two print-runs of El Sudani in a row.
