Sudan: South Darfur Human Rights Activist Detained, Beaten Senseless

Gireida — South Darfur human rights activist Adam Suleiman has been transferred to Gireida Hospital in a coma as a result of alleged torture and severe beating by the security services in the town.

Witnesses told Radio Dabanga that the incident began at Abuja market for displaced people in Gireida on Thursday, with the arrival of a joint security force and the army in two vehicles.

The joint force immediately arrested Adam Suleiman from in the market. They beat him severely with rifle butts, which brought Suleiman to the ground.

He said that Suleiman was then transferred to the offices of the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) where he was further beaten with electricity cables until he fell unconscious.

He said the security services transferred Adam in a coma to Gireida Hospital.
