Two employees of printing companies in Khartoum are still being held by the National and Intelligence Service (NISS) in Khartoum.

Abu Taleb Salaheldin was detained from a private printing office at the El Soug El Arabi in downtown Khartoum in December last year.

“We haven’t heard about him since then,” a relative told Radio Dabanga. “The NISS still refuses to inform us about the whereabouts of our brother.”

“We handed a request to visit him to the NISS Information Office in Khartoum on Saturday, and demanded that he is brought to justice or immediately released,” he said,

An activist reported to this station on Sunday that Mutaz El Ejeil was detained from a printing office in Khartoum in the beginning of this month. “The security apparatus is still refusing to allow his family to see him,” he said.

He pointed to the possibility that the NISS suspects him from printing protest pamphlets.
