Show the Sudanese Government that We're Still Paying Attention! May 12, 2005 4:09 AM

Over the past few months, we have asked you to come to the aid of Sudanese human rights advocate Dr. Mudawi Ibrahim Adam.  Our efforts were not in vain.  Following our appeal to the Defender Alert Network, Dr. Mudawi was released from detention on March 3, 2005. But Dr. Mudawi needs our help again.  For the third time in the last 18 months, Dr. Mudawi has been arrested in apparent reprisal for his human rights work in Darfur. On May 8, only hours before he was to travel to Ireland to receive a prestigious award for his tireless promotion of human rights, Dr. Mudawi was arrested in Khartoum along with two others, Yasir Saleem and Abdalla Taha.  Dr. Mudawi is chairperson of the Sudan Social Development Organization (SUDO), an organization actively monitoring human rights violations in Darfur.  As the crisis in Sudan rages on, the work of human rights advocates like Dr. Mudawi becomes more and more important.  Sudanese human rights activists work at great personal risk and rely on support from individuals like you.  Please take a minute to send a letter to the Sudanese authorities letting them know that we have not forgotten human rights defenders like Dr. Mudawi and urging his immediate release.

Sudan: Human Rights Defender Dr. Mudawi Released After International Outcry Dr. Mudawi was release Monday, May 16, after having been arrested for the third time in apparent reprisal for his human rights work in Darfur.  Human Rights First remains concerned that charges of "espionage against the country" and "photographing military areas," have not been dropped.  The charges carry a potential death sentence, and Human Rights First believes that they are unfounded.  Speaking after his release Dr Mudawi said, "I do thank all of those people who supported me, the pressure is part of the reason for my release."
