Urgent Sudan Appeal: Engineer Amira Osman Hamid arrested

Date: 22/01/2022

Time: 11:30 PM

Arrested from: Her family home, Riyadh neighbourhood in Khartoum, Square 17, house no. 34.

Destination: Unknown

*Arrested by: Sudanese National Security Forces*

*Political activities: Chair of No to Women’s Oppression Initiative* and a member of the Riyadh neighbourhood resistance committee

According to a personal eye witness account given by her sister Lawyer/Amani Osman Hamid, she was arrested last night when a convoy of vehicles carrying around 30 members of the Sudanese national security forces, heavily armed with Kalashnikovs, AK-47, sticks and hoses, first rounded their home then forced themselves into the house. Once inside they forced themselves into several rooms and bathrooms, terrorising the whole family including their old mother and very small children.

Engineer Amira Osman has special needs and she uses crutches for walking. Her health condition and her use of medication puts her life at imminent risk following her unlawful, barbaric arrest.

We urge all human rights and women rights organisations to put maximum pressure on the leaders of the military coup d’etat in Sudan demanding the immediate and unconditional release of Amira Osman.
