Sudan: Intimidation and denial: Attacks on freedom of expression in Darfur

, Index number: AFR 54/101/2004

In this document, Amnesty International calls on the Sudanese government to lift all restrictions on the right to freedom of expression and to release all those detained solely for expressing their opinions. The Sudanese government, under increasing international pressure, is attacking freedom of expression, in order to control information needed by the Sudanese and the world in assessing whether the government is fulfilling its commitments. Stifling freedom of expression is not only a serious violation of human rights; in the present context, it also hampers the work of monitors and observers in Darfur, including those in charge of reporting on progress of the situation to the United Nations Security Council.
