Khartoum: AlTaghyeer

Revolutionary forces in Khartoum called for the commemoration of the one-year anniversary of the murder of a young man, under torture, in which high-ranking officers from the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) were accused.

The “Kalaklat Resistance and South Khartoum Committees” announced in a post on Facebook an event commemorating one year passing since the “assassination of Bahaa Nouri.”

According to the publication, the event— scheduled for Wednesday – will include processions heading towards the house of the victim in the al-Kalakla suburb, south of Khartoum.

In addition, talks are planned to be held addressing extrajudicial killings and impunity, along with an accompanying photo exhibition.

Nouri was killed during torture he was exposed to in one of the Rapid Support Forces’ detention centers in Khartoum, after he was kidnapped by civilians from the al-Kalakla market, south of the capital, in an unmarked car on December 17 last year.

Following the increase in public pressure, the Rapid Support Forces’ spokesman, Jamal Juma’a, announced that all individuals who participated in his arrest would be detained pending the completion of investigation procedures in the case.

An independent committee’s report refuted the Omdurman mortuary’s report that claimed that Bahaa el-Din Nouri died of natural causes, instead reporting that his death was caused by torture.

The Sudanese street exerted great pressure on the judicial authorities to speed up bringing those involved in violations to fair trials, hoping to stop government backed extrajudicial executions.
