- The Government of Sudan
Mubarak Abdullahi ElFadel Elmahdi, Chairman of Umma Reform and Renewal Party was arrested from his house in Khartoum 14th on July 2007 by the National intelligence and Security Service. Also arrested was secretary general AbdelGaliel ElBasha and 15 retired military men.
Mr ElMahdi,a staunch advocate of democracy, was falsely accused of sabotage as a prelude to a coup d'etet. He is being held in solitary confinement and unsanitary conditions with poor food and without due regard to his failing health.He is feeling severely ill and is requesting medical treatment by his personal doctor but is being denied.A medical doctor he was trying to see before his detention testifies his deteriorating health condition.
Similarly Amnesty International has issued a circular to its members requesting them to come to the support of Mr Mubarak ElMahdi and his colleagues.
We, the undersigned, condemn the illegitimate and unconstitutional manner of the arrest of Mubarak ElMahdi and the obscure circumstances surrounding his detention.Their detention is in clear violation of their basic human rights as stipulated by the constitution.
We reiterate Mubarak ElMahdi's belief in reaching a peaceful and just solution to the Sudan's problems.
We demand that the authorities immediately release those detained and correct the violations committed against them, and we hold the government responsible for their safety and well being.
