The Sudanese Human Rights Monitor Demands Immediate Ending of Violence against Peaceful Protesters and Calls for Independent Investigation in Killings in Niyala, Medani and Khartoum

Khartoum. 27th September 2013. Sudanese Human Rights Monitor (SHRM) follows with great concern the gross human rights violations that accompany the ongoing peaceful protests since 22nd September 2013, especially in Medani and Khartoum. People were protesting in different locations in Medani, Khartoum, Khartoum North and Omdurman against the government decision to cut subsidy of oil products, and consequently increase prices of fuel and food items. Police and security have dealt with these protests violently leading to killings in several cases. Authorities have also waged campaigns against protesters, activists and political opponents and arrested tens of them without specific charges. We also followed with concern using excessive force by authorities against protesters in Niyala, South Darfur last week in the aftermath of the assassination of a local businessman.
