AFR 54/055/2007 - 14 September 2007
All eight men named above were released on 13 September. It is not yet known how they were treated in custody.
They had been arrested on 28 August, apparently as a result of their opposition to the construction of the Kajbar Dam in Sudan’s Northern State. They were held incommunicado, putting them at risk of torture.
No further action is requested from the UA network. Many thanks to all who sent appeals.
