Urgent Action: Sudanese activist deported, at risk of torture

Sudanese political activist Mohamed Hassan Alim Shareef was deported from Egypt to Sudan on 9 October. Officers from Sudan’s National Intelligence Service (NISS) arrested him upon his arrival in Sudan. He is currently detained at the NISS headquarters in Khartoum North. Amnesty International considers him to be a prisoner of conscience, held solely for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of expression.

Take action.

Please write immediately in Arabic, English or your own language:

  • Calling on the Sudanese authorities to release Mohamed Hassan Alim Shareef immediately and unconditionally;
  • Urging them to ensure that Mohamed Hassan Alim Shareef is granted regular access to his family, medical treatment and a lawyer of his choice without delay;
  • Urging them to ensure that, pending his release, he is protected from torture and other ill-treatment.
