Question: What can you tell us about the Rudwan Dawod Trial?

Answer: Political activist Rudwan Dawod was re-arrested yesterday by the Government of Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Services, immediately following his release by a judge who had found him “not guilty” of the most serious charges leveled against him which included terrorism, and had imposed a modest fine (500 Sudanese Pounds—equal to $100) and a sentence limited to time already served.

We do not have any information on what the new charges are. We have urged the Government of Sudan to honor the decision by the judge, which was rooted in Sudanese criminal law as well as established precedent, in his decision to release Dawod.
