We are aware of allegations made about the treatment of Amal Habani during her arrest. We continue to call on the Government of Sudan to release all those detained following recent protests as soon as possible and continue to make clear our expectation that all detainees will be treated in accordance with international standards. More widely, we urge the Government of Sudan to implement the recommendations of the National Dialogue that relate to limiting the powers of the National Intelligence and Security Service to arrest and detain individuals.
