​Brutal Attack by the Riot Police and the NISS on Al-Fasher University Students - 14th and 15th April 2015


In the context of a peaceful demonstration held by students of Al-Fasher university on 14th April 2015 calling for boycotting the presidential election and changing the regime, the Riot Police and the National Intelligence Security Service (NISS) arrested eighteen (18) students from Al-Fasher University and pressed charges against them under the Articles 50, 63 and 67 of the riot Act.

When the students were brought to court, a group of activist lawyers working as the defence team tried to interview the students and take their statements, but they were denied access by the police who took the students back to Shalla prison. All the students showed marks of severe beating and their clothes were stained with blood. Some of the students were unconscious.
