Sudan: The chains remain: Restrictions on freedom of expression in Sudan

, Index number: AFR 54/028/2010

Some have been tortured, tried on politically motivated charges and imprisoned as prisoners of conscience. The government must reform the laws and procedures that impose undue restrictions on freedom of expression in violation of Sudan’s international human rights obligations and commitments.
