On Monday, the al-Ubayyid Criminal Court in North Kordofan issued a decision to write off reports filed against six underage children under the emergency law after their participation in the recent protests.

The army chief, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, seized power on October 25th, days before the date of handing over the presidency of the Sovereignty Council to the civilian faction of the transitional authority in Sudan.

The Sudanese citizens have led a large-scale protest campaign against the coup and the political agreement concluded between al-Burhan – Hamdok signed on 21st of November.

The putschist authorities confronted the protests with excessive force, and arrested a large number of activists, leaders, and members of the resistance committees.

After holding seven sessions, the al-Ubayyid Court heard all witness statements and questioned all the defendants in the case.

The court acquitted the accused and ordered their immediate release.

The court canceled all reports filed against Adam Muzammil Adam (11), Amin Ahmed Abu Bakr, (16), Abdul Rahman Salem, Qai’ Allah Hafez, Muhammad Anwar (16).

The coup authorities had filed reports against more than 50 members of the resistance committees since the army’s coup against the civilian authority.
