Geneva, 17 December 2013
The Darfur Relief and Documentation Centre (DRDC) received information that Mr. Abdel Jalil Mahi-al-Deen Abdel Jalil, a 32 years old shop keeper, died as a result of injuries sustained during his detention in a Military Intelligence facility in Kadugli, capital of South Kordofan State. Mr. Abdel Jalil died in the early hours of Tuesday, 17 December 2013 in the Military Hospital in Kadugli where he was admitted in a critical situation a few hours earlier. Mr. Abdel Jalil was arrested in Kadugli by agents of the Military Intelligence on Saturday, 14 December 2013 without warrant of arrest or a court order. He was accused by the Military Intelligence of collaborating with the insurgent Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N). The family of Mr. Abdel Jalil believes that he was ill-treated and severely tortured which led to his death.
DRDC is very concerned that torture and extra-judicial killings are systematically practiced by the security agents in Sudan and with total impunity. Torture, unlawful killings and enforced disappearances are particularly rampant in areas that witness armed conflicts such as Darfur, South and West Kordofan and the Blue Nile States, and where the native peoples are indiscriminately suspected by the intelligence agents of being supporters or sympathizers of the insurgent movements. DRDC calls for an independent investigation of the killing of Mr. Abdel Jalil and the apprehension and trial of his killers.
