Sudan: Terrorism suspects subject to grave human rights violations, UN expert finds

In his report of 26 May to the UN Human Rights Council, the Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in the Sudan, Mohammed Chande Othman, concluded that national courts in Sudan had failed to order any investigations into allegations of torture and other ill-treatment, arbitrary detention, and fair trial violations in the cases of some of the 106 men who had been convicted by an anti-terrorism court for their involvement in the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) attack of 10 May 2008 in Omdurman. The Government released 57 of these people on 24 February 2010.
