Agents of the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) in Khartoum detained the secretary-general of the Consumer Protection Association and an activist member on Monday.

The security apparatus did not give any reason for their detention. They have not been charged, and their relatives or lawyers have not been allowed to visit them, the Sudanese Congress Party (SCP) reported in a statement on Wednesday.

The opposition party strongly condemned the “unlawful detention of Dr Yasir Mirghani and Nasreen Ali”, calling it “another violation of human rights, committed by the Khartoum regime and its security forces”.

According to the statement, they were most probably held because of their activities against the “rampant corruption” in the country.

Apart from demanding their immediate release, the SCP called upon “all Sudanese to unite, stand up, and topple this corrupt and tyrannical regime, so that we can leave it behind us, in the dustbin of history”.
