Sudanese security announced that 58 security personnel were injured in demonstrations on Saturday.
Sudanese security said that 114 people were arrested in demonstrations on Saturday, and legal measures were taken against them.
And the Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors announced, last Tuesday, the death of a twenty-eight-year-old man who was shot Sunday in the demonstrations calling for civilian rule, while a government official spoke of documenting two rape incidents of two participants in these gatherings.
In a statement, the committee confirmed the death of Abdel Moneim Muhammad Ali (28 years), after he had been “shot in the head by the putschist forces during his participation in the December 19 million in Omdurman local processions.”
As of Tuesday, according to the statistics of the Doctors Committee, two people were killed and more than 300 injured during the massive demonstrations, Sunday, which reached the walls of the Republican Palace, on the third anniversary of the December 19, 2019 revolution that toppled Omar al-Bashir, to demand civilian rule.
This brings the death toll to 47 since the protests began in October, the commission said.
On the other hand, Salima Al-Khalifa Ishaq, director of the Unit for Combating Violence against Women in Sudan’s Ministry of Social Development, told AFP: “We have documented two cases of rape of two female demonstrators who participated in the December 19 demonstration.”
Ishaq explained that the two cases received medical assistance, noting that “one of them wrote a report and the other refused to take legal measures,” without clarifying any details about the report or the accused.
And the Darfur Bar Association said in a statement last Monday that “several grave crimes occurred after the December 19 march, and among the most heinous and grave crimes were the rape of women.”
The commission added that “according to the testimonies of some of the rapists, some of them were threatened to open criminal reports against them for engaging in prostitution, in order to force them to remain silent.”
The Darfur region in the west of the country is one of the most common areas in Sudan where rape crimes are rampant.
