ANHRI condemns calling the riots police to disperse the demonstrations of the Engineering students in the university which had started on November 10, 2012 as the administration forced them to pay for the tuition fees which they are pardoned from it.

The university called the riots police to disperse the peaceful demonstration of Darfur students as they were forced to pay for the tuition fees which is a violation to the peaceful agreements and the president orders of pardoning the people of Darfur from the tuition fees which led to these demonstrations that erupted after the students reached level 3 in the Civil Engineering Faculty.

It is worthy to be mentioned that this is not the first time that the faculty administration issue arbitrary decisions regardless the students, which led to demonstrations in less than four months.

ANHRI warns the Sudanese authorities and the administration of the University from repressing the fundamental freedoms, particularly freedom of opinion and expression by addressing the student demonstrations with violence and force and call the riot police to disperse the demonstration by force.

It also called the Sudanese authorities to the need to open an immediate investigation into these violations suffered by students during the peaceful demonstration, which they have organized and find out those involved from the riot police and the university administration who did not pay attention to the agreements and used violence to repress the freedom of students and their right to express their opinion,and bring them to justice to account.
