SUDANSara Nugdallah (f), university lecturer and women's activist
Sara Nugdallah was released on Saturday, 15 July, from her detention in Khartoum as part of the crackdown on the leadership of the Ansar, a traditional order of Sudanese Islam, and the banned Umma party. Dozens of other political opponents remain in detention, including the former prime minister of Sudan, Sadiq al-Mahdi, and Amnesty International believes the majority of them may be prisoners of conscience.
NO FURTHER ACTION IS REQUIRED ON BEHALF OF SARA NUGDALLAH. Many thanks to all those who sent appeals.
