Sudan: Incommunicado detention/fear of torture or other ill-treatment/medical concern/possible prisoners of conscience
Eight men [Nazmi Mohammed Hamed, Nayef Mohammed Hamed, Al-Khatib Mohammed Salem, Maysara Izzeddin Mohammed Mansur, Farouq Nouri, Hisham Abbas, Da'ud Suleima and Isam Mohammed Faqir) were arrested on 28 August, as a result of their opposition to the construction of the Kajbar Dam in Sudan's Northern State. They have been held incommunicado since their arrest and may be at risk of torture or ill-treatment. One of the detainees may not have access to the medication he needs. Amnesty International believes that the men may be prisoners of conscience, detained solely for exercising their right to freedom of expression.
