Sudan: 'We Have Amended Laws to Guarantee Human Rights in Sudan' - Justice Minister

Khartoum — The UN Independent Expert on the Situation of Human Rights in Sudan, Aristide Nononsi, started talks with government officials in Khartoum on Sunday.

Nononsi arrived in Khartoum this weekend for a 10-day visit to the country. On Sunday he met with Ahmed Abbas El Rizim, Minister of Justice, and Omar Suleiman Adam, Speaker of the State Council, concerning the overall human rights situation in the country.

After the meeting, the Minister of Justice told reporters in Khartoum that his ministry "has amended many laws with the aim to guarantee human rights in the country, including the lifting of immunity from those who are non-eligible".

The minister said there is a proposal to establish a binding Code of Conduct on how to deal with people who are legally charged. They should as well enjoy rights stipulated in the Constitution and other laws so as to ensure human rights will not be violated in the country.
