Sudan: Allegations of Sudanese Government Employees Engaging in Assaults on Lawyers | Letter

Full PDF Version

The following link is a report about the conduct of Sudanese Government employees who have engaged in assaulting lawyers in Sudanese Government venues, including courts. The report has been shared with Human Rights groups around the world and illustrates an unconscionable disregard of civil rights on the part of government employees.

The purpose of this letter is to ensure that officials of the Sudanese Government are aware of abuses carried out by its employees and to ask that stronger initiatives be implemented to ensure that human rights are respected by all government officials, particularly in Sudanese Courts. One of those initiatives must be to develop and implement a programme of international human rights training and education for all government employees and people working within the legal system including judges, lawyers, police and prison employees.
