Sudan: Death Penalty / Unfair trial

, Index number: AFR 54/029/2003

On 26 April, 26 people including Al-Taher Ahmad Hamdan, a 15-year-old boy and Al-Doum Adam Abaker Ali (m), and Mohammad Omer Suliman Ahmad both aged over 70, were sentenced to death in a court in Nyala, South Darfur state. Amnesty International is concerned that the death penalty has been imposed following a judicial process that falls far short of international standards for fair trials.
