WOMAN LEAVES HAIR UNCOVERED, RISKS FLOGGING

    URGENT ACTION
    WOMAN LEAVES HAIR UNCOVERED, RISKS FLOGGING
    Sudanese women’s rights activist Amira Osman Hamed is to go on trial on 19 September for refusing to cover her hair in public. She is at risk of receiving up to 40 lashes for ‘indecent or immoral dress.’
    Amira Osman Hamed, aged 35, was arrested on 27 August and charged with ‘indecent or immoral dress’ by the Public Order Police for refusing to cover her hair with her headscarf. Amira, also a civil engineer, was working in Jabal Awliya, in the outskirts of Khartoum when 10 policemen approached her and threatened to take her to the police station because she refused to wear her headscarf. She was then taken to the prosecutor’s office who charged her with “indecent dress” under Article 152 of Sudan's 1991 Criminal Code. She was released on bail after being held for four hours at the police station.
    Amira Osman Hamed's trial is due to start on 19 September. If convicted, she could be sentenced to corporal punishment of up to 40 lashes. The first hearing in the court on 1 September was postponed, reportedly because the judge was ill.
    Amira Osman Hamed was also previously charged and convicted under the same law in 2002 - for wearing trousers - and had to pay a fine. Amnesty International has documented several cases of other women and girls convicted for wearing ‘indecent or immoral dress’ as the provision is applied in a discriminatory manner and disproportionately against women.
    Amnesty International opposes flogging as it violates the absolute prohibition against torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment under international customary law. The prohibition is also contained in the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. As a signatory to the convention, Sudan must not act in a manner inconsistent with the object and purpose of the convention.
    Please write immediately in English, Arabic or your own language:
    and#957; Urging the authorities to drop the charge against Amira Osman immediately and unconditionally;
    and#957; Calling on them to abolish the penalty of flogging, which violates the absolute prohibition against torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment;
    and#957; Urging them to repeal Article 152 of the Criminal Code of 1991, in conformity with their obligations under international human rights law.
