A summary tribunal held in the town of Sinja, Sinnar State, have issued death sentences against nineteen of SPLM-N civilian detainees from Blue Nile State and Northern Sudan, who have no involvement in the on-going military action there.
Those detainees were arrested from their homes and places of work during the NCP regime assault in Blue Nile and its elected SPLM-N Governor, Malik Agar, last September. Almost all those held underwent unspeakable torture, degraded treatment and abuse for the period of their detention. As a result, some have become physically disabled or disfigured from systematic ill treatment. Now finally, under the cover of a complete news blackout, they have been subjected to summary trials, which bear no relation to natural justice or impartial judicial processes- they were not granted, even the most basic of their legal rights. The sentences are but, a most flagrant violation of all human rights norms. Now the nineteen condemned detainees await their fate in Kober prison, in Khartoum, among them the renowned writer and poet Mr. Abdel-Monim Rahma.
What follows is a list of the detainees, whose trials are due to take place in Sinja in the coming days
• Musa Jah-Alrasoul
• Hammad Ahmed GAdim
• Saddam Abbas Jol (a minor)
• Mohammed Abdel-Algani Digais
• Sheikh Ali Alnour Geri (local chief- Kalogi)

The Committee calls upon all patriots at home and in the diaspora to rise up to stop this barbaric trials.
