Last Saturday, an armed force raided the home of the feminist activist and head of the “No to Oppression of Women” initiative, Amira Othman, late at night and also took her to an unknown destination.

In late December, the head of the military coup in Sudan, Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan, issued a decision restoring the right of detention to the intelligence service.

The decision gave free rein to the General Intelligence Service, which recently carried out extensive arrest campaigns against members of the resistance committees, political leaders, and civil society activists.

The decision granted the intelligence service the necessary powers to carry out its role to “protect the country” in accordance with the justifications made by the coup leaders.

It is noteworthy that the constitutional document for the transitional period of 2019, prior to al-Burhan’s October 25th coup, stipulated that the General Intelligence Service was a regular apparatus specialized in national security, with tasks limited to collecting, analyzing, and submitting information to competent authorities.
