    Court proceedings against journalists and Editors in Chief continued during this period with
    many cases against journalist regarding the publishing of articles that are classified as ‘red-line’
    topics. The hearing of Ms. Inam Adam (journalist) and Mr. Osman Mirghani (Editor in Chief)
    from El-Tyar newspaper was held regarding two claims made against them following the
    publishing of two articles on radioactive waste in October, 2015.
    During this quarter, a number of journalists were summoned and interrogated (8 reported cases)
    by security regarding articles they published, representing an unprecedented and increasing
    escalation of violations towards press freedom. Mr. Abdul Azim Saleh, Editor in Chief, and Ms.
    Nasra Abdelrahman, journalist at Akhir Lahza newspaper were both summoned and interrogated
    regarding a published article on the activities of the Boko Haram group in Sudan.
    Travel restrictions and the illegal withholding of travel documents against journalist were also
    witnessed during this quarter. Mr. Faisal Mohamd Salih was prevented from traveling to London
    by security at Khartoum International Airport; his passport was confiscated and informed that his
    name is on the Travel Ban List.
    Reports of violations this period included violations against TV and Radio Channels, TV
    programs continue to be subject to censorship and review before broadcasting. National Security
    summoned and interrogated Mr. Mojahid Abdalla, (Program Producer) at Omdurman TV
    Channel, regarding a program concerning DAL and Kajbar Dam, and ordered producers from
    Omdurman TV to provide a weekly report on each program to be reviewed before broadcasting.
    The space of press freedom in Sudan is constantly affected by government views on certain
    issues, the list of ‘off-limit’ topics rise according to the country situation, any opposing views
    with the government position will be subject to violation. At the same time, journalists are
    ordered to write positively on topics concerning government’s plans or policies (the National
    Dialogue, the Darfur Referendum and the Nubian Dams Constructions). Government
    international relations also has an effect on the space of press freedom, as an example Raad AlShmal
    and Saudi Packages Storm were among the redlines topics during this period.
    The space for press freedom is expected to narrow further with the introduction of the new Press
    and Printing Law, expected to pass in mid-April, 2016. This law will contain articles that
    monitor both print and electronic newspapers as well as publishing articles on social media.
    Moreover, the new law contains a specific article to prevent any printing operation without
    Government approval. The implementation of this law will curtail press freedom and reflects the
    worsening social and political situation in the country.
    Summary of incoming reports
    This is a summary of all reports for the press freedom DMS system during the period
    January 1 to March 31, 2016.
