Arab Organisation for Human Rights in the UK (AOHR UK) condemned the arrest of Sudanese journalist Al-Tayeb Mustafa after publishing articles in which he criticized the practices of the Empowerment Removal Committee of the Transitional Sovereign Council.
AOHR UK stressed that such action reveals the council’s desire to control the country by cruelty and suppress freedom of opinion and expression.
AOHR UK said that the journalist, Al-Tayeb Mustafa, head of the “Just Peace Forum party, was arrested on the evening of June 1st by the Sudanese authorities, after publishing criticisms of members of the Empowerment Removal Committee of the Transitional Sovereign Council of Sudan, accusing it of using its powers to achieve personal goals.
The arrest of Al-Tayeb Mustafa is not the first of its kind, where many journalists and activists were arrested for expressing their opinions which are critical of the practices of the Transitional Sovereign Council.
AOHR UK stressed that the repressive practices including arbitrary arrests are contradictory to the goals of the Sudanese revolution and would lead the country to a dark tunnel.
AOHR UK called on civil society and all forces in Sudan to stand against all forms of repression and attempts to militarize the state, and to release all political detainees who were arrested for their peaceful opposition and opinions.
