Unlawful and irregular arrest of Journalist in Wad Medani

Al-Jazirah State Police arrested the reporter of Al-Jarida newspaper, Muzammil Siddik, in response to charges brought against him in relation to an article he wrote.

The Sudanese Journalists Network strongly condemned his arrest and interrogation and described the incident as unprecedented in that any such charges can only be made by the relevant specialized court (for Press/Publications Prosecutor) and not by the police.
