Sudan: Teachers Summoned Daily by Security Apparatus

Khartoum — The National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) still summons 13 teachers daily to its headquarters in Khartoum North, because they reportedly urged people to demonstrate in January. Security agents summoned the head of the Khartoum Teachers Committee last week because of the general strike of the secondary teachers in the state.

The NISS accuses the primary and secondary school teachers of inciting public unrest because they called on people to join the anti-price hikes demonstration organised by opposition parties in Omdurman on January 17.

Therefore, the teachers have to report each morning at the NISS offices near the Shendi busstation in Khartoum Bahri, one of their colleagues told Radio Dabanga.


NISS officers summoned Yasin Abdelkarim, head of the Khartoum Teachers Committee, to its office in Khartoum on Thursday.

On Wednesday, the secondary school teachers in Khartoum state downed their tools in protest against the non-payment of their salaries.

Duriya Babaker, leading member of the Teachers Committee, informed this station that Abdelkarim was held at the NISS office from 1 pm until after sunset.
