Urgent Action Update: Two Sudanese Dissidents Interrogated For Activism (Saudi Arabia: UA 9/17)

Urgent Action
March 20, 2017
Two Sudanese nationals have been detained incommunicado since their arrest on 21 December 2016 in Saudi Arabia after they supported recent civil disobedience in Sudan on social media. They are prisoners of conscience.
Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:
  • Calling on the Saudi Arabian authorities to release Elgassim Seed Ahmed and Elwaleed Imam immediately and unconditionally, as they are prisoners of conscience detained solely for the peaceful exercise of their right to freedom of expression;
  • Urging them to ensure that, pending their release, the two men are protected from torture and other ill-treatment, and granted regular access to their families and a lawyer of their choice without delay;
  • Urging them, in accordance with their obligations under international law, to ensure that the two men are not deported to Sudan, where there is a real risk they would be subjected to torture and other ill-treatment.
Contact these two officials by 28 April, 2017:
