Sudan Solidarity Committee demands investigation into Khartoum attacks
The Sudanese Committee of Solidarity with the Victims of the September Demonstrations has requested the formation of an independent commission to investigate “the crimes against civilians committed by the Sudanese government and its militias”.
The Solidarity Committee demands an independent commission that should promptly and independently investigate all crimes committed by the government and its militias, in particular the attacks on the premises of the Sudanese Congress Party in Omdurman last Sunday, and the editor-in-chief of El Tayyar newspaper on Saturday.
Siddig Yousif, the head of the Committee, stressed to Radio Dabanga the need to bring the perpetrators to justice, and reveal those behind the attacks to the Sudanese public. “Moreover, if these brutal assaults, hitherto unknown in Sudan, can continue without repercussion, the country is in real danger.”
