فضية لبنى فى صحف العالم من سيدنى الى سياتل (تتورطون)

    جاءت فضية لبنى لترسخ الصورة النمطية عن الإسلام فى اذهان الغربيين والكثيرين فى بقاع أخرى من العالم (الإرهاب وإضطهاد المرأة) تلك هى بضاعة أتباع ابن تيمية اليهودى الحرانى الزنديق عدو المرأة الذى عاش عازبا 67 سنة لم يتزوج لكنه أصدر مئات الفتاوى فى شأن المرأة بما فى ذلك فتواه بأن المرأة تكره على الختان.. فدولة المشروع الحضارى لا تختلف عن دولة طالبان وشباب الصومال وبوكو حرام سوى فى النفاق.

    فشريعة المؤتمر الوطنى التى تنفذها عصابات الفاقد التربوى التى تسمى بشرطة النظام العام تحل الرشوة والإبتزاز والإختلاس ويطالب فيها (واحد آل وزير عدل آل) اسمه محمد على المرضى من المتهمين بغسيل الأموال أن يدفعوا له رشوة بمبلغ 3 مليون دولار لكى يشطب القضية. و واحد آخر اسمه عبدالرحيم الحرامى يتعاقد مع مقاول لبناء عمارة اسمها ساجدة و يبنى له فى ذات الوقت منزلا بالمجان ( هذا مالكم وهذا أهدى إلىّ). وسجدت ساجدة وتم ترفيع الحرامى الى منصب أعلى.

    دولة (أخنق فطس) التى تمارس فيها (عصابات الفاقد التربوى) جبروتها على النساء و المواطنين العزل، و تعجز عن حماية المدنين فى دارفور فيوافق المشير المنبطح على قدوم قوات أفريقية ودولية لتقوم بحمايتهم من القتل والإغتصاب. فهو يدخر (عصابات الفاقد التربوى المدححة بالسلاح) لمطاردة وضرب النساء.

    يقف بالأمس فى قاعة الصداقة طبيب الأسنان رئيس نقابات العمال ابراهيم غندور (المتشحم بمال الحرام) ويتحدث عن تحرير الجولان ومزارع شبعا، إنه عصر الجنون الذى يظن فيه هؤلاء البلهاء أنهم يحكمون شعباً غشيماً نسى أنهم بالأمس عندما أغارت طائرات اسرائلية على أهداف داخل السودان كتموا الأمر (قطعوها فى حشاهم) حتى لا ينفضحوا بعجزهم ولا يعلم الشعب أن جيشهم لا يستطيع أن يحارب غير الشعب السودانى.

    وعندما تعلن تشاد عن قيام طائراتها بالإغارة على أهداف داخل السودان فلا تترك لهم مجالا للصمت وأن (يقطعوها فقط فى حشاهم) فلا يجدوا مخرجاً غير الشكوى لمجلس الأمس، ويتصلوا بالقذافى ليتوسط لهم مع تشاد (للمرة العشرين)، ويمارس اعلامهم عادته فى سب ادريس دبى وكل أعداء المشير، ويعقد عبدالرحيم الكذاب مؤتمراً صحفياً يعلن فيه أنهم بصدد صنع طائرة بدون طيار (حتى يستغنوا عن الطيارين الروس المرتزقة) طائرة عبدالرحيم التى يجرى تصنيعها لن تهاجم اسرائيل أو تشاد (بُعد الشر) لكنها فقط لليوم الأسود.

    Quote: Sudanese woman faces flogging for wearing trousers
    10:12AM Thursday Jul 30, 2009
    By Mohamed Osman

    KHARTOUM, Sudan - A Sudanese female journalist facing 40 lashes for wearing trousers in public in violation of the country's strict Islamic laws told a packed Khartoum courtroom yesterday she is resigning from a UN job that grants her immunity so she can challenge the law on women's public dress code.

    Lubna Hussein was among 13 women arrested July 3 in a raid by members of the public order police force on a popular Khartoum cafe for wearing trousers, considered indecent by the strict interpretation of Islamic law adopted by Sudan's Islamic regime.

    All but three of the women were flogged at a police station two days later.

    But Hussein and two other women decided they wanted to go to trial and Hussein invited human rights workers, western diplomats and fellow journalists to yesterday's hearing.

    Some of her women friends showed up in court yesterday wearing trousers in a show of support.

    "This is not a case about me wearing pants," said Hussein, who works in the media department of the UN Mission in Sudan and contributes opinion pieces to a left-leaning Khartoum newspaper.

    "This is a case about annulling the article that addresses women's dress code, under the title of indecent acts. This is my battle. This article is against the constitution and even against Islamic law itself," she said after the hearing.

    Judge Mudathir Rashid adjourned the hearing until August 4 to give Hussein time to quit her job.

    Hussein said she would immediately quit and thanked the UN for intervening to spare her possible punishment.

    She said the UN mission was trying to stand by her, invoking a clause in an agreement between the Sudanese government and the world body's representatives in Sudan that obliges authorities to ask permission before starting legal proceedings against a member of its staff.

    When asked about the case, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon described himself as "deeply concerned" and said flogging was a violation of international human rights standards.

    "The UN will take every effort to ensure that the rights of its staff members are protected," Ban told a news conference.

    Hussein's defence lawyer, Nabil Adeeb, said the UN wanted to protect its staff, but Hussein wanted her trial to proceed.

    "We have contradicting interests," he said. Hussein can face at least 40 lashes, according to Adeeb.

    Islamic Sharia law has been strictly implemented in Sudan since an army coup led by President Omar al-Bashir seized power in 1989, toppling an elected but ineffective government. Activists and lawyers say the implementation of the law is arbitrary.

    Public order cases usually involve quick summary trials with sentences carried out shortly afterwards, as was the case with the 10 of the 13 women arrested earlier this month. They were flogged and fined 250 Sudanese pounds, or about NZ$185.

    Women in the mostly Arabised and Muslim northern Sudan, particularly in the capital Khartoum, dress in traditional outfits that include a shawl over their head and shoulder. Western dress is uncommon.

    Still, the raid on a Khartoum cafe popular with journalists and foreigners was unusual.

    Quote:
    Lubna Hussein: 'I'm not afraid of being flogged. It doesn't hurt. But it is insulting'

    Lubna Hussein could receive 40 lashes if found guilty on Tuesday of being indecently dressed - by wearing trousers. In her first major interview, she tells James Copnall in Khartoum why she is determined to fight on, whatever danger she faces

    Sitting in the restaurant where her ordeal began, Lubna Hussein looks at the offending item of clothing that caused all the trouble and laughs softly. "In Sudan, women who wear trousers must be flogged!" she says, her eyes widening at the thought. The former journalist faces up to 40 lashes and an unlimited fine if she is convicted of breaching Article 152 of Sudanese criminal law, which prohibits dressing indecently in public.

    What exactly constitutes "indecent" is not clear. Last month Lubna was among a crowd listening to an Egyptian singer in a restaurant in a swish area of Khartoum when policemen surged in. They ordered Lubna and other women to stand up to check what they were wearing, and arrested all those who had trousers on. Lubna, who was wearing loose green slacks and a floral headscarf, was taken to the police station.

    "There were 13 of us, and the only thing we had in common was that we were wearing trousers," Lubna says. "Ten of the 13 women said they were guilty, and they got 10 lashes and a fine of 250 Sudanese pounds (about £65). One girl was only 13 or 14. She was so scared she urinated on herself."

    Lubna asked for a lawyer, so her case was delayed. Despite the risks, she is determined that her trial should go ahead. Before her initial hearing last Wednesday, she had 500 invitation cards printed, and sent out emails with the subject line: "Sudanese journalist Lubna invites you again to her flogging tomorrow."

    The court was flooded with women's rights activists, politicians, diplomats and journalists, as well as well-wishers. During the hearing, Lubna announced that she would resign from her job as a public information officer with the United Nations, which would have provided her with immunity, to fight the case. The judge agreed, and adjourned the trial until Tuesday.

    Lubna says she has no fear of the punishment she might face. "Afraid of what? No, I am not afraid, really," she insists. "I think that flogging does not hurt, but it is an insult. Not for me, but for women, for human beings, and also for the government of Sudan. How can you tell the world that the government flogs the people? How can you do that?"

    She is determined to face prosecution in order to change the law. "It is not for me. It is my chance to defend the women of Sudan. Women are often arrested and flogged because of what they wear. This has been happening for 20 years. Afterwards some of them don't continue at high school or university, sometimes they don't return to their family, and sometimes if the girls have a future husband, perhaps the relationship comes to an end."

    Lubna, a widow in her 30s, says women have faced similar punishments, mainly in silence, ever since President Omar el-Bashir seized power in 1989. For much of the time since then, Sudan has been at loggerheads with the west. It provided shelter for Osama bin Laden in the 1990s, and is still on an American list of countries that sponsor terrorism, although a senior US official said recently that there was no justification for this.

    But Lubna says her concerns are not political. Her frustration stems from what she believes is an erroneous interpretation of her religion.

    "Islam does not say whether a woman can wear trousers or not. The clothes I was wearing when the police caught me - I pray in them. I pray to my God in them. And neither does Islam flog women because of what they wear. If any Muslim in the world says Islamic law or sharia law flogs women for their clothes, let them show me what the Qur'an or Prophet Muhammad said on that issue. There is nothing. It is not about religion, it is about men treating women badly."

    Since news of the case broke, Lubna has been celebrated in the western press. She is bemused by the thought of being seen as a heroine, and even more by the idea - suggested by some British newspapers - that she was targeted because she is a Christian. "I am a Muslim, and a good Muslim," she says.

    In response to the articles about her case, the Sudanese embassy in London pointed out there had been next to no coverage of a recent landmark arbitration ruling on the region of Abyei, which is contested by the north and the south following two decades of civil war. Despite fears that it might spark renewed conflict, both sides announced they would respect the ruling.

    "The floodgates of expert and non-expert comments on Sudan opened suddenly on 29 July in the wake of an indecency and antisocial behaviour case in Khartoum involving journalist Lubna A Hussein," the statement read. "The case is still ongoing and it wouldn't be appropriate to comment on it. The real question, which is relevant to the deep-rooted Islamophobic and anti-Arab prejudice, is th selective spotlight on Ms Lubna Ahmed Hussein and determined neglect of Abyei dispute's result for eight long days."

    Sitting in the Khartoum restaurant as the fierce late-afternoon sun intrudes through the windows, Lubna dismisses the notion that western praise might be a drawback in a country like Sudan. "In Sudan, we like the west," she exclaims, apparently agitated by the idea that people might not realise this. "For many Sudanese, our dream is to go to the west." But the government doesn't always give that impression. "The government thinks differently to the people. The government hopes to be friends with the west, but sometimes they try to look tough, that's all."

    Nevertheless, she is worried that the foreign attention on her case could lead to further cultural misunderstandings. "The west really doesn't understand Islam," she says. "Because as Muslims we know that, if the police catch girls and arrest and flog them, we know this is not Islam. But when the government of Bashir does that, the west says: 'Oh, that is Islam.' It presents a bad face of Islam."

    Since her initial hearing, Lubna has been bombarded with messages and phone calls from all over the world. Her family has been supportive, she says, perhaps in part because they are used to it: she was first arrested 15 years ago as a campaigning university student, and has been called in by the police on many subsequent occasions, often after writing satirical articles for the newspaper her husband set up, Sahafa

    But one phone call from within the country touched her most. "I talked to my colleagues in the court, the 10 who have already been flogged. At the beginning they were very sad, and one of them was in a bad psychological state. But when she saw me on TV and in the newspaper, she called me to say that this was good. In the beginning, her neighbours and her family didn't believe she was flogged just for the clothes she was wearing. So she called me to say thank you."

    The issue is rapidly becoming politicised. The Sudan People's Liberation Movement, which represents the mainly non-Muslim south in a coalition government, has called for the law to be changed. Under a 2005 peace deal, sharia law is not supposed to apply to non-Muslims, and not the least controversial among Lubna's statements is that several of the 10 women she says were flogged were non-Muslims.

    But, for Lubna, the heart of the case goes beyond the north-south divide and its ramifications. She says nothing in Islam justifies flogging a woman for wearing trousers. "I am not a hero, I just don't have a choice," she says, fiddling with her pale gold headscarf.

    When she spoke to the Observer, Lubna was wearing trousers again, this time blue jeans. Will her experience change the way she dresses? "I have trousers, I have dresses, I have traditional Sudanese clothes - I wear what I like. I won't change."

    And what will happen if the judge decides, as is still possible, that she was indecently dressed, and sentences her to 40 lashes?

    "I will take my case to the upper court, even to the constitutional court," she insists, measuring her words. "And if they find me guilty, I am ready to receive not only 40 lashes, I am ready for 40,000 lashes. If all women must be flogged for what they wear, I am ready to be flogged 40,000 times."

    Quote: Whip me if you dare' says Lubna Hussein, Sudan's defiant trouser woman
    Lubna Hussein, the Sudanese woman who is daring Islamic judges to have her whipped for the "crime" of wearing trousers, has given a defiant interview to the Telegraph.

    As the morality police crowded around her table in a Khartoum restaurant, leering at her to see what she was wearing, Lubna Hussein had no idea she was about to become the best-known woman in Sudan.

    She had arrived at the Kawkab Elsharq Hall on a Friday night to book a cousin's wedding party, and while she waited she watched an Egyptian singer and sipped a coke.

    She left less than an hour later under arrest as a "trouser girl" - humiliated in front of hundreds of people, then beaten around the head in a police van before being hauled before a court to face a likely sentence of 40 lashes for the "sin" of not wearing traditional Islamic dress.

    The officials who tried to humiliate her expected her to beg for mercy, as most of their victims do.

    Instead she turned the tables on them – and in court on Tuesday Mrs Hussein will dare judges to have her flogged, as she makes a brave stand for women's rights in one of Africa's most conservative nations.

    She has become an overnight heroine for thousands of women in Africa and the Middle East, who are flooding her inbox with supportive emails. To the men who feel threatened by her she is an enemy of public morals, to be denounced in the letters pages of newspapers and in mosques.

    As she recounted her ordeal in Khartoum yesterday Mrs Hussein, a widow in her late thirties who works as a journalist and United Nations' press officer, managed cheerfully to crack jokes - despite the real prospect that in a couple of days she will be flogged with a camel-hair whip in a public courtyard where anyone who chooses may watch the spectacle.

    Her interview with The Sunday Telegraph was her first with a Western newspaper.

    "Flogging is a terrible thing – very painful and a humiliation for the victim," she said. "But I am not afraid of being flogged. I will not back down.

    "I want to stand up for the rights of women, and now the eyes of the world are on this case I have a chance to draw attention to the plight of women in Sudan."

    She could easily have escaped punishment by simply claiming immunity as a UN worker, as she is entitled to under Sudanese law. Instead, she is resigning from the UN – to the confusion of judges who last Wednesday adjourned the case because they did not know what to do with her.

    "When I was in court I felt like a revolutionary standing before the judges," she said, her eyes blazing with pride. "I felt as if I was representing all the women of Sudan."

    Like many other women in the capital, Mrs Hussein fell foul of Sudan's Public Order Police, hated groups of young puritans employed by the government to crack down on illegal drinkers of alcohol and women who, in their view, are insufficiently demure.

    Despite their claims of moral superiority, they have a reputation for dishonesty and for demanding sexual favours from women they arrest.

    Mrs Hussein was one of 14 women arrested at the Kawkab Elsharq Hall, a popular meeting place for the capital's intellectuals and journalists, who bring their families. Most of them were detained for wearing trousers. The police had difficulty seeing what Mrs Hussein was wearing under her loose, flowing Sudanese clothes. She was wearing green trousers, not the jeans that she said she sometimes wears, and wore a headscarf, as usual.

    "They were very rude," she said. "A girl at a table near mine was told to stand up and told to take a few steps and then turn around, in a very humiliating way. She was let off when they 'discovered' she was not wearing trousers."

    After her arrest, on the way to a police station, she tried to calm the younger girls.

    "All the girls were forced to crouch on the floor of the pick-up with all the policemen sitting on the sides," she said. "They were all very terrified and crying hysterically, except me as I had been arrested before during university days by the security services.

    "So I began to try to calm the girls, telling them this wasn't very serious. The response of the policeman was to snatch my mobile phone, and he hit me hard on the head with his open hand.

    "On the way I felt so humiliated and downtrodden. In my mind was the thought that we were only treated like this because we were females."

    Christian women visiting from the south of Sudan were among the 10 women who admitted their error and were summarily flogged with 10 lashes each. But Mrs Hussein declined to admit her guilt and insisted on her right to go before a judge.

    While waiting for her first court appearance, she said she was surprised to find herself held in a single cramped detention cell with other prisoners of both sexes. "How Islamic is that?" she asked. "This should not happen under Sharia."

    Mrs Hussein is a long-standing critic of Sudan's government, headed by President Omar al-Bashir, the first head of state to face an international arrest warrant for war crimes. Sudan has been accused of committing atrocities in the Darfur region.

    Before her arrest she had written several articles criticising the regime, although she believes she was picked at random by the morality police.

    The regime has often caused international revulsion for religious extremism. In 2007 British teacher Gillian Gibbons was briefly imprisoned for calling the classroom teddy bear Mohammed.

    The government is dominated by Islamists, although only the northern part of the nation is Muslim. Young women are frequently harassed and arrested by the regime's morality police.

    Mrs Hussein said: "The acts of this regime have no connection with the real Islam, which would not allow the hitting of women for the clothes they are wearing and in fact would punish anyone who slanders a woman.

    "These laws were made by this current regime which uses it to humiliate the people and especially women. These tyrants are here to distort the real image of Islam."

    She was released from custody after her first court appearance last week, since when she has appeared on Sudanese television and radio to argue her case - which has made headlines around the world.

    She is not only in trouble with police and judges. A day after her court appearance she was threatened by a motorcyclist, who did not remove his helmet. He told her that she would end up like an Egyptian woman who was murdered in a notorious recent case.

    Since then she has not slept at home, moving between the houses of relatives. She believes her mobile telephone has been listened to by the security services using scanners.

    But she has pledged to keep up her fight. "I hope the situation of women improves in Sudan. Whatever happens I will continue to fight for women's rights."

    The trial of Lubna Hussein was postponed for the second time yesterday. Under the pretext of attempting to determine whether Hussein had truly revoked her immunity from prosecution when she resigned from her UN position, the authorities have bought more time to find a face-saving resolution to the debacle. This is looking more and more unlikely as Hussein's campaign gathers momentum both at home and abroad.

    Initially, she was viewed as something of a loose cannon in Khartoum. So many before her had suffered the pot luck fate of flogging and retreated to lick their wounds in private for fear of attracting more shame and indignity. In a naturally demure and modest society, any suggestion of inappropriate behaviour leaves a woman with no option but to try and minimise the damage to her reputation and quell the "no smoke without fire" whispers.

    But now that spell has been broken. Around 50 female protesters braved tear gas and baton beatings from police outside court yesterday, tying their fate to Lubna's. An ancillary case is brewing as another journalist faces an exorbitant fine for criticising the government's handling of the case. By breaking through the self-imposed barrier of fear of what others would think, Lubna has stripped her punishment of all its power and turned the tables spectacularly. If ultimately she is flogged her "martyrdom" will be complete – if she is found innocent the government will be humiliated and public order laws made a mockery of.

    Aspects of the story have now taken on the quality of urban legend. There are whispers of government emissaries dispatched to her house in the dead of night in an effort to hammer out a deal, but that Hussein would not countenance any solution involving acceptance of her guilt. The support has now evolved from a woman's movement into a comprehensive one with political elements relishing the opportunity to embarrass a government hiterto immune from criticism. The case offers the perfect opportunity to criticise the system of laws under the cover of what is widely believed to be a morally justified campaign. "It is good to see [the government] squirm" a realtive said to me, as local trial tourists drove past the court to witness police beating supporters and allegedly at one point, one of Hussein's female lawyers. Using religion as excuse for tyranny in social affairs has unintentionally resulted in the public using this case as an excuse for political dissent.

    The new date for the trial, 7 September, falls in the middle of Ramadan. This will work in Hussein's favour. Ramadan is a month when Muslims are supposed to renounce violence and refrain from all intolerant behaviour, dedicating the fast to peaceful contemplation. Perhaps the government will invoke its faux piety and use this as an excuse to delay the trial yet again if no other solution can be negotiated in the meantime. Hopefully, the momentum the case has captured will not ease. Flogged or found innocent, the world will be watching.

    Inside the courtroom, Miss Hussein, a former journalist and United Nations press officer, was on Tuesday due to learn whether she would be found guilty of committing an indecent act and sentenced to 40 lashes with a camel hide whip.

    But judges again adjourned their verdict until September 7, apparently to consult over whether Miss Hussein's job would grant her immunity.

    "They want to check with the UN whether I have immunity from prosecution," she told Reuters outside the Khartoum court.

    "I don't know why they are doing this because I have already resigned from the United Nations. I think they just want to delay the case." Miss Hussein, who is in her 30s, was arrested in a Khartoum restaurant with 12 other women by Sudan's Public Order police for wearing " indecent clothing".

    Ten of the women - some of them Christians from southern Sudan to whom such laws should not apply - accepted a punishment of 10 lashes each.

    But Miss Hussein's defiant stand against the charge has gathered wide publicity and has embarrassed Sudan's strict ruling regime.

    "I am not afraid of being flogged. I will not back down," she told The Sunday Telegraph in her first interview with a Western newspaper at the weekend.

    "I want to stand up for the rights of women, and now the eyes of the world are on this case, I have a chance to draw attention to the plight of women in Sudan."

    Miss Hussein was wearing a pair of loose green slacks, a blouse and a thin headscarf when she fell foul of the Public Order police.

    She was deemed to have contravened Article 152 of Sudanese law, which punishes with 40 lashes anyone who "commits an indecent act which violates public morality or wears indecent clothing".

    But women's groups have argued that the law gives no clear definition of indecent dress, leaving the decision of whether to arrest a women up to individual police officers.

    "If I'm sentenced to be whipped, or to anything else, I will appeal," she said on Monday.

    "I will see it through to the end, to the constitutional court if necessary. And if the constitutional court says the law is constitutional, I'm ready to be whipped not 40 but 40,000 times". Miss Hussein has argued that wearing trousers does not contravene Sharia, the Islamic law in operation in Muslim northern Sudan.

    She defiantly appeared in court last week wearing the same clothes in which she was arrested. She printed 500 invitations to supporters, human rights activists and journalists to attend the hearing.

    Quote: Trial of Female Journalist Arrested for Wearing Trousers Postponed until 7 September; Second Female Journalist Faces Enormous Fine for ‘Defamation’
    IPI Fellow Vuslat Dogan Sabanci, in Khartoum to Observe Court Hearing, Warns Media Freedom & Other Human Rights under Threat

    The trial of Sudanese journalist Lubna Hussein, who faces 40 lashes after being arrested a month ago for wearing trousers, has been postponed, again, until 7 September, according to International Press Institute (IPI) fellow Vuslat Dogan Sabanc&#305;, who was in Khartoum for the hearing. Sabanci is a former board member of IPI and current CEO of Turkey’s Hurriyet newspaper.

    The delay in Hussein’s trial is apparently designed to give the judges time to decide whether Hussein’s job as a UN media officer when she was arrested will grant her immunity from prosecution. Hussein has already resigned from that position so she can fight the case.

    Hussein and 12 other women were arrested on 3 July in a restaurant by a group of public order police for wearing trousers. They were accused of “sensational dressing up” and threatening the values of Sudanese society under Article 152 of the 1991 Criminal Code.

    Ten of the women opted to plead guilty, immediately received 10 lashes and were fined 250 Sudanese pounds.

    Hussein, along with two others, opted to take legal counsel and fight the charges. Having adopted this route, the women could now face up to 40 lashes. Hussein’s mother came to the court on Tuesday to support her.

    In a move lauded by the Arabic Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI) and other human rights groups, Hussein mailed around 500 invitations to the media and rights groups, asking them to attend her trial and expected flogging.

    IPI’s Vuslat Dogan Sabanci spent several hours on Tuesday, after the court hearing, with Hussein and female Sudanese journalist Amal Habbani, who edits the “Tiny Issues” column in Ajrass Al Horreya newspaper and who was charged a few weeks ago with defaming the police over a 12 July story entitled “Lubna…A Case of Subduing a Woman’s Body,” in which she defended Lubna Hussein.

    According to a press release issued by the Arabic Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI), Amal is being charged under Article 159 of the 1991 Criminal Code, which deals with defamation. If convicted, she could face a fine of 10 million Sudanese pounds or almost $3 million Euros.

    Hussein told Vuslat Dogan Sabanci: “These kinds of occasions are not rare or extraordinary for Sudan. Women get arrested for improper clothing almost every day and get punished by whipping. However, it’s the first time a woman says: No I’m not guilty, I want to go to court.

    “I’m fighting to change this law that limits women’s clothing and all women’s rights,” Hussein told IPI.

    Asked by Vuslat Dogan Sabanci if she was afraid, she said: “I am not afraid of anything. I will fight for the change of the law.”

    Lawyers in Khartoum told IPI that the domestic and international attention attracted by the trial had played a role in the judges’ decision to postpone it without allowing the defendants to speak.

    Also speaking to Vuslat Dogan Sabanci, Amal Habbani said: “Since the last 20 years, women’s rights have been going backwards. In 1965 there were women in the Sudanese Parliament. However, today they are not allowed to decide what’s proper to wear.”

    Sudan already has a poor record on press freedom. According to a 2008 UNHCR report, journalists have in recent years faced harassment, intimidation, attacks and direct censorship at the hands of both government and non-government forces. For example, in early 2007 the private Arabic-language daily Al-Sudani was closed down for several days for violating a ban on coverage of the murder of the former editor-in-chief of the private daily Al-Wifaq, who was beheaded in 2006. And in April 2007, BBC journalist Jonah Fisher was expelled from the country because of his coverage of the region.

    The Sudanese parliament recently passed a new press law, which, although removing provisions that allow for journalists’ imprisonment, gives courts the right to impose unlimited fines. The amendments also give the National Press and Publication Council, which is closely linked to the President, the right to close newspapers for three days without a court ruling.

    A Sudanese newspaper editor, who asked not to be named, told IPI’s Vuslat Dogan Sabanci in Khartoum: “Every day before we publish the paper, the Government comes and checks what we’ve written and we have to take things out. We are under extreme pressure.”

    Speaking to the IPI Secretariat in Vienna, from Khartoum, Vuslat Dogan Sabanci said: “On the level of women’s rights and a free press, Sudan is really in an extreme situation. The International Press Institute and other international organisations, including women’s, can make a difference if they continue their interest in Sudan. It’s a unique place that should be under the eye of human rights campaigners.”

    In a statement, IPI Deputy Director Michael Kudlak said: “The Sudanese government must ensure that journalists in Sudan are able to work free of hindrance, harassment, the fear of arrest or physical attack, and censorship. Sudan’s continuing failure to uphold the pillars of a free media place in question its ability to guarantee other fundamental human rights.”

    Sudanese women flogged for wearing trousers

    Khartoum police arrest 13 women in raid on café, whip 10 of them in public for wearing pants in violation of country's strict Islamic law

    Associated Press
    Published: 07.16.09, 09:31 / Israel News

    Sudanese police arrested 13 women in a raid on a café and flogged 10 of them in public for wearing trousers in violation of the country's strict Islamic law, one of those arrested said Monday.


    The 13 women were at a café in the capital, Khartoum, when they were detained Friday by officers from the public order police, which enforces the implementation of Sharia law in public places.

    Full story
    The force, which is similar to the Saudi religious police, randomly enforces an alcohol ban and often scolds young men and women mingling in public.


    One of those arrested Friday, journalist Lubna Hussein, said she is challenging the charges, which can be punishable by up to 40 lashes.


    "I didn't do anything wrong," Hussein said.


    Islamic Sharia law has been strictly implemented in Sudan since the ruling party came to power in a 1989 military coup.


    Public order cases usually involve quick summary trials with sentences carried out shortly afterward, as was the case with 10 of the women arrested Friday. They were flogged and fined 250 Sudanese pounds, or about $120.


    Hussein and two other women chose to go to trial. On Monday, she was summoned for questioning and now she awaits a decision from the prosecutor on when the case could go to trial.


    'Big brother is watching'
    Women in northern Sudan, particularly in Khartoum, dress in traditional outfits that include a shawl over their head and shoulder. Western dress is uncommon.


    Still, the raid on a Khartoum cafe popular with journalists and foreigners was unusual.


    Hussein's lawyer, Nabil Adeeb, said action by the public order police is often arbitrary and aims "from time to time to let people know that big brother is watching you."

    Hussein said she decided to speak out because flogging is a practice many women endure in silence. She even sent printed invitations to the press and public figures to attend her expected trial.


    "Let the people see for themselves. It is not only my issue," she said. "This is retribution to thousands of girls who are facing flogging for the last 20 years because of wearing trousers," she said. "They prefer to remain silent."

    Police beat women opposing Sudan dress code trial

    KHARTOUM, Sudan -- Sudanese police fired tear gas and beat women protesting at the trial Tuesday of a female journalist who faces a flogging for wearing trousers in public.

    Sudanese journalist Lubna Hussein could receive 40 lashes if found guilty of violating the country's indecency law which follows a strict interpretation of Islam. The 43-year-old says the law is un-Islamic and "oppressive," and she's trying to use her trial to rally support to change it.

    "I am not afraid of flogging. ... It's about changing the law," Hussein said, speaking to The Associated Press after a hearing Tuesday.

    Hussein said she would take the issue all the way to Sudan's constitutional court if necessary, but that if the court rules against her and orders the flogging, she's ready "to receive (even) 40,000 lashes" if that what it takes to abolish the law.

    Hussein was among 13 women arrested July 3 in a raid by the public order police on a popular cafe in Khartoum. Ten of the women were fined and flogged two days later. But Hussein and two others decided to go to trial.

    In an attempt to rally support, Hussein printed invitations to diplomats, international media, and activists to attend her trial which opened last week. She also resigned from her job in the U.N.'s public information office in Khartoum, declining the immunity that went along with the job to challenge the law.

    Around 100 supporters, including many women in trousers as well as others in traditional dress, protested outside the court Tuesday.

    Witnesses said police wielding batons beat up one of Hussein's lawyers, Manal Awad Khogali, while keeping media and cameras at bay. No injuries were immediately reported.

    "We are here to protest against this law that oppresses women and debases them," said one of the protesters, Amal Habani, a female columnist for the daily Ajraas Al Hurria, or Bells of Freedom in Arabic.

    While the police broke up the demonstration outside the Khartoum Criminal Court, the judge adjourned Hussein's trial for a month to clarify whether her resignation has been accepted by the United Nations.

    The 1991 indecency law was adopted by Sudan's Islamic regime which came to power after a coup led by President Omar al-Bashir in 1989. It follows a strict interpretation of Islamic law that imposes physical punishment on "those who commit an indecent act that violates public morale; or who dress indecently."

    Trousers are considered indecent under the law. Activists and lawyers say it is implemented arbitrarily, and leaves the definition of "indecent acts" up to the implementing police officer.

    Hussein said the law is unconstituational, and is not supported by Islamic text. Flogging is a common punishment for drinking and making alcohol, and whatever else the law enforcer deems indecent. Recently, a famous Sudanese singer, who took to the stage under the influence of alcohol, was flogged.

    "Flogging is an insult to human dignity," Hussein said. "If the (rulers) claim this is based on Islamic Shariah (law), can anyone show me a verse in the Quran or in the prophet's teachings that speak of flogging women because of their dress code?"

    Rabie Abdel Attie, a government spokesman, called the uproar over the case politically motivated and said only the constitutional court can decide to repeal the law.

    "There is no need for all that noise. There are clearly political motivations behind this thrust," he said.

    The public order police force patrols the streets of Khartoum, enforcing an alcohol ban and often scolding young men and women mingling in public.

    Hussein said many women endure the flogging in silence, because they fear the stigma associated with being tried under the indecency law.

    Hussein wore the same clothes Tuesday that she wore when arrested, including the dark-colored pants that authorities found offensive. She said she is required to wear the outfit to court so officials can see the clothing when making their decision. But Hussein said she's also been wearing the outfit every day, even when not in court, to highlight her case.

    Her trial opened last Wednesday but immediately adjourned to give her the opportunity to resign from her U.N. job.

    U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he was "deeply concerned" about Hussein's case and that flogging is a violation of international human rights standards.

    The U.N. Staff Union urged authorities last week not to flog Hussein, calling the punishment cruel, inhuman and degrading.

    A SUDANESE journalist facing 40 lashes for wearing ‘‘indecent’’ trousers vowed on the eve of her judgment she is ready to be whipped 40,000 times in her attempt to change the harsh laws.

    Lubna Ahmed al-Hussein is to be judged today under Article 152 of Sudanese law, which sanctions 40 lashes for anyone ‘‘who commits an indecent act which violates public morality or wears indecent clothing’’.

    Mrs Hussein, who works for the media department of the United Nations Mission in Sudan, waived the immunity granted to UN workers.

    As the morality police crowded around her table in a Khartoum restaurant on July 3 to see what she was wearing, Mrs Hussein had no idea that she was about to a symbol for women’s rights.

    She had arrived at the Kawkab Elsharq Hall on a Friday night to book a cousin’s wedding reception, and while she waited she watched an Egyptian singer and sipped a Coke.

    She left less than an hour later under arrest as a ‘‘trouser girl’’ – humiliated in front of hundreds of people, then beaten around the head in a police van before she was hauled before a court to face a likely sentence of 40 lashes for the ‘‘sin’’ of not wearing traditional Islamic dress.

    The officials who tried to humiliate her expected her to beg for mercy, as most of their victims do.

    Instead she turned the tables on them. In court today Mrs Hussein will dare judges to have her flogged, as she makes a stand for women’s rights in one of Africa’s most conservative nations.

    She has become an overnight heroine for thousands of women in Africa and the Middle East, who are flooding her email in-box with supportive messages.

    To the men who feel threatened by her she is an enemy of public morals, to be denounced in the mosques and newspapers’ letter pages.

    As she recounted her ordeal in Khartoum on the weekend, Mrs Hussein, a widow in her late thirties who works as a journalist and UN press officer, managed to crack jokes, despite the real prospect that in a couple of days she will be flogged with a camel-hair whip in a public courtyard where anyone who chooses may watch the spectacle.

    ‘‘Flogging is a terrible thing – very painful and a humiliation for the victim,’’ she said. ‘‘But I am not afraid of being flogged. I will not back down.

    ‘‘I want to stand up for the rights of women, and now the eyes of the world are on this case I have a chance to draw attention to the plight of women in Sudan.’’

    Like many other women in the capital, Mrs Hussein fell foul of Sudan’s Public Order Police, hated groups of young puritans employed by the Government to confront drinkers of alcohol and women who, in their view, are insufficiently demure.

    Despite their claims of moral superiority, they have a reputation for dishonesty and for demanding sexual favours from the women they arrest.

    Mrs Hussein declined to admit her guilt and insisted on her right to go before a judge.

    She has received death threats and since her first court appearance she has not slept at home, moving between the houses of relatives. She believes that her mobile telephone calls have been screened by the securi

    Lubna Ahmed Hussein joins protesters in Khartoum

    Police have fired tear gas at supporters of a Sudanese woman charged with wearing "indecent clothing", shortly after her trial was postponed.

    Lubna Ahmed Hussein says she was arrested for wearing trousers.

    She has adopted a defiant attitude, urging authorities to try her although she faces up to 40 lashes in public.

    Earlier, she told the BBC she was not afraid, saying: "Flogging is not pain, flogging is an insult to humans, women and religions."

    Ms Hussein has resigned from a UN job that would have given her immunity to take on the case - indicating she wants it to become a test case for women's rights in Sudan.

    "If the court's decision is that I be flogged, I want this flogging in public," she told the BBC's Today programme.

    But Ms Hussein's trial in the capital, Khartoum, was delayed for a month after the judge said he needed to verify if she was immune from prosecution because of her former position at the UN.

    After her hearing was adjourned, Ms Hussein said the authorities wanted to delay her trial until the fuss around it went away.

    Scores of women protested outside the court, some holding up banners saying "No return to the dark ages".

    Then the riot police drove them away, reports the BBC's James Copnall in Sudan.

    First they marched up the road, banging their batons against their plastic shields, and later they fired tear gas and charged the protesters.

    One of Ms Hussein's lawyers, Manal Khawajali, complained that she was beaten up by police outside the court.

    'My message'

    Ms Hussein was arrested in a restaurant in the capital with other women earlier this month for wearing clothing deemed "indecent" under Khartoum's Sharia law.


    ANALYSIS
    James Copnall
    James Copnall, BBC News, Khartoum

    In theory Khartoum is governed by a relatively strict interpretation of Islamic law.

    But the law is not meant to apply to non-Muslims, following a 2005 peace deal between the largely Muslim north and the essentially non-Muslim south.

    Although Lubna Hussein says she is facing prosecution for "indecent clothing" for wearing trousers, it is not unusual to see women wearing them.

    Southern girls wear tight blue jeans and no headscarves in shopping malls; Muslim women too can be seen in trousers, though usually only in the sort of cafe frequented by the elite and foreigners. From time to time southerners are arrested for producing illegal alcohol.

    She said 10 of the women arrested with her, including non-Muslims, each received 10 lashes and a fine.

    "Before police caught me, there are maybe 20,000 girls and women getting flogged for dress reasons," she said.

    If this could happen in a restaurant in Khartoum, imagine what the situation must be for women in Darfur, Ms Hussein said.

    "This is my message."

    Ms Hussein and two other women asked for a lawyer, delaying their trials.

    Under a 2005 peace deal between the mainly Muslim north and the largely Christian and animist south, Sharia law is not supposed to be applied to non-Muslims living in the capital.

    Our correspondent says it is not that unusual to see women - both Muslim and non-Muslim - wearing trousers in the city.

    Ms Hussein says she has done nothing wrong under Sharia law, but could fall foul of a paragraph in Sudanese criminal law which forbids indecent clothing.

    Quote: Sudanese woman risks flogging over 'indecent' trousers

    Sudanese journalist Lubna Ahmed al-Hussein

    Sudanese journalist Lubna Ahmed al-Hussein says she will give up her immunity as a UN worker

    A woman journalist is taking on the feared Sudanese morality police to challenge the country’s draconian laws on public dress, insisting on being tried for the crime of wearing trousers in public and risking a punishment of 40 lashes.

    Lubna Ahmed al-Hussein was at a private party in a restaurant in an upmarket district of Khartoum on July 3 when a group of public order policemen — given the task of enforcing strict Islamic rectitude — burst in. They detained her and a dozen other women for wearing trousers, considered indecent according to the law.

    Ten of those arrested, including women from the Christian south of the country, were summoned to a police station two days later and were each flogged ten times, according to Ms Hussein. She said that she avoided summary punishment by calling a lawyer but was ordered to appear before a judge yesterday.

    Ms Hussein, who is also a public information officer for the United Nations Mission in Sudan, turned up to court yesterday expecting to be fined up to 250 Sudanese pounds (£64) and sentenced to 40 lashes. Instead, she was told that her status as a UN employee granted her immunity from the flogging. She promptly quit and demanded that the case carry on.

    “I wish to resign from the UN. I wish this court case to continue,” she told Judge Mudathir Rashid and a packed courtroom. The judge adjourned the case until Tuesday.

    A spokesperson for the UN mission refused to comment on Ms Hussein’s case, calling it “a personal issue”. However, Ban Ki Moon, the UN Secretary-General, referred to the case at a New York press conference, saying he was “deeply concerned” and denouncing flogging as a violation of human rights.

    “The UN will take every effort to ensure that the rights of its staff members are protected,” he said.

    At the time of her arrest Ms Hussein was wearing long, loose dark green trousers, a colourful thigh-length shirt and a patterned green hijab or Islamic headscarf. She wore the same outfit to her court appearance yesterday. Apparently determined to extract maximum publicity, Ms Hussein said that she had invited 500 supporters and journalists to the trial, to raise awareness of “dozens, hundreds, and maybe thousands flogged in public order courts because of their dress, day after day, month after month, and year after year”.

    Nabil Adib Abdullah, her defence lawyer, told reporters: “First of all she wants to show she is innocent, and using her immunity will not prove that. Second, she wants to fight the law.” He called her trial a test case for Sudan.

    In a posting on her Facebook page Ms Hussein said: “The problem lies in Clause 152 of the criminal law, which sentences \ to 40 lashes or a fine, or both, for improper dress, without stipulating what exactly that is.”

    After the hearing she said that her aim was to have that clause annulled. “This is my battle. This article is against the constitution and even against Islamic law.” Dozens of women protested outside the court waving placards saying “a woman is not for flogging” and “lashing people is against human rights”.

    Even though Ms Hussein is casting her case as a fight for women’s rights the Sudanese authorities have other reasons to persecute her. She writes a regular column called “Men Talk” in the left-wing al-Sahafa newspaper, founded by her late husband, in which she is frequently critical of the hardline Islamist regime of President Bashir.

    Mr Bashir, who celebrated two decades in power on June 30, seized power in a bloodless coup in 1989 and has ruled Africa’s largest country with an iron fist ever since.

    Mohamed Khaled, of the Arab Network for Human Rights, told The Times: “Lubna’s case is not about Sharia, it is a political case. She has criticised the Government and the extremists and Islamists who dominate the country.”

    وقال ساركوزي في رسالته إلى ماري جورج بوفي التي نبهته للقضية "استطيع أن أؤكد لكم أن فرنسا ستستمر في جهودها إلى جانب هذه الشابة السودانية الشجاعة وسنواصل العمل معها لمساعدتها في معركتها التي تشرفها والتي تعتبر معركة كل امرأة".

    وأكد ساركوزي في رسالته التي أصدرها الاليزيه أنه يشاطر النائب مشاعرها وقلقها الكبير حيال ما يشكله هجوم غير متسامح على حقوق المرأة، حسب تعبيره.

    وكان ساركوزي قد طلب أيضا من سفير بلاده في السودان دعوة الصحافية إلى الإقامة في فرنسا.

    يذكر أن محاكمة الصحافية قد أرجئت إلى 7 سبتمبر/أيلول.

    Quote: متهمة بارتداء ملابس غير محتشمة
    تأجيل قضية الصحفية لبنى أحمد حسين أسبوعاً



    الخرطوم -(رويترز) :

    مثلت امرأة سودانية تواجه عقوبة الجلد 40 جلدة أمام محكمة اكتظت بمؤيديها امس الأربعاء ضمن ما وصفه محاميها بأنها قضية اختبار لقوانين الاحتشام في السودان.

    وكانت هناك مشاهد فوضى فيما كانت الصحفية لبنى حسين التي تعمل في (وكالة إعلام)الأمم المتحدة تحضر الجلسة مرتدية نفس السروال الفضفاض الأخضر الذي كانت ترتديه عند اعتقالها بتهمة عدم الاحتشام.

    وكانت (لبنى احمد) حسين قد اجتذبت الأنظار من خلال الدعاية لقضيتها ودعت الصحفيين لجلسات المحاكمة .

    وأرجئ نظر القضية امس حيث ناقش المحامون ما إذا كان وضعها كموظفة في الأمم المتحدة يعطيها حصانة قانونية.

    وعقب الجلسة قال نبيل أديب عبد الله محامي الدفاع إن (لبنى احمد) حسين وافقت على الاستقالة من الأمم المتحدة قبل الجلسة المقبلة في الرابع من أغسطس آب لضمان استمرار القضية.

    وأضاف عبد الله متحدثا للصحفيين أنها تريد في المقام الاول إظهار براءتها التامة واستخدام حصانتها لن يثبت ذلك.

    وقال إن لبنى احمد حسين مستعدة لمواجهة العقوبة القصوى عن مخالفة ارتداء ملابس غير محتشمة في العلن وهي 40 جلدة ودفع غرامة غير محددة.

    وقبل الجلسة قالت لبنى لرويترز إنها اعتقلت في مطلع يوليو تموز حينما داهمت الشرطة حفلة كانت تحضرها في مطعم بحي الرياض في الخرطوم.

    [QUOTE]Sudanese journalist faces flogging for wearing trousers
    Published 30 July 2009

    Print version Email a friend Listen RSS Woman to forgo diplomatic immunity to challenge the regime's strict laws on indecency

    A female Sudanese journalist facing 40 lashes for wearing trousers in public is challenging the law on women's dress.

    Lubna Hussein told a packed Khartoum courtroom yesterday that she was resigning from her job in the media department of the United Nations Mission in Sudan that grants her immunity.

    She and 12 other women were arrested on 3 July during a police raid on a popular café in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan. They were all wearing trousers, considered indecent under the Sudanese government's strict interpretation of Islamic law.

    Ten of the women were flogged at a police station two days later and fined 250 Sudanese pounds (£63). Hussein, who writes for a left-leaning newspaper, and two other women decided to go to trial. She invited human rights workers, western diplomats and other journalists to Wednesday's hearing.

    Hussein said: "This is not a case about me wearing pants. This is a case about annulling the article that addresses women's dress code, under the title of indecent acts. This is my battle. This article is against the constitution and even against Islamic law itself."

    She thanked the UN mission for their support. The hearing has been adjourned until 4 August to give Hussein time to leave her job.

    Although women play a prominent role in public life in Sudan, sharia law has been strictly implemented since Omar al-Bashir's coup in 1989.

    شغب لبنى أحمد حسين
    صبحي حديدي 21 يوليو 2009



    حسناً فعلت الزميلة الصحافية السودانية لبنى أحمد حسين حين طبعت 500 دعوة، وزّعتها على أهل الصحافة والإعلام، وبعض منظمات حقوق الإنسان في السودان، وذلك للمشاركة في الحدث التالي: “حضور محاكمتها وجلدها 40 جلدة، تحت المادة 152 من القانون الجنائي لسنة 91 (ملابس تسبب مضايقة للشعور العام). المكان محكمة النظام العام ـ محلية الخرطوم وسط السجانة. الزمان يوليو 2009 (لم تحدد حتى الآن). والدعوة عامة!!!”.
    وكما بات معروفاً اليوم، في الثالث من شهر تموز (يوليو) الجاري، كان أفراد من شرطة النظام العام في الخرطوم قد داهموا قاعة يُقام فيها حفل عامّ يضم نحو 300 إلى 400 شخص، وأوقفوا 13 من الفتيات اللواتي كنّ يرتدين البناطيل، واقتادوهنّ إلى مفوضية الشرطة. وهناك جرى تنفيذ عشر جلدات بحقّ بعضهنّ، ممن وافقن على قبول العقوبة والنجاة من المحاكمة؛ كما أحيلت ثلاث منهنّ إلى المحكمة، كانت بينهنّ الصحافية لبنى أحمد حسين. العقوبة طُبّقت إستناداً إلى المادة 152 من القانون الجنائي السوداني، لعام 1991، حول “الأفعال الفاضحة والمخلة بالآداب العامة”، والتي يقول نصّها: “1) من يأتي في مكان عام فعلاً أو سلوكاً فاضحاً أو مخلاً بالآداب العامة أو يتزيا بزي فاضح أو مخلّ بالآداب العامة يسبب مضايقة للشعور العام يعاقب بالجلد بما لا يجاوز اربعين جلدة أو بالغرامة أو بالعقوبتين معاً. 2) يعدّ الفعل مخلاً بالآداب العامة إذا كان كذلك في معيار الدين الذي يعتنقه الفاعل أو عرف البلد الذي يقع فيه الفعل”.
    ثمة، ابتداء، مقدار مريع من الغموض يكتنف الصياغة اللغوية لهذه المادّة، ويفسح بالتالي المجال الأوسع لأشكال لا حصر لها من التأويلات، بصدد تعريف “الفعل” أو “السلوك” أو “الفاضح” أو “المخلّ بالآداب”، ناهيك عن تحديد “الزيّ” أو “المضايقة” أو “معيار الدين” أو “العرف”. ولكن، بمعزل عن هذه الاعتبارات القانونية، ما يثير الدهشة هو أنّ الصورة التي نشرتها الزميلة حسين عن زيها “الفاضح” ساعة توقيفها، هي في الواقع الدليل الفاضح على تخلّف تلك المادّة من القانون، وانفصالها عن أزمنة البشر وأمكنتهم، وانتمائها إلى غيهب جاهلي بغيض ومقيت. ذلك لأنّ الزميلة، كما تبيّن الصورة، كانت ترتدي بنطالاً فضفاضاً (من القماش العادي، وليس الـ “جينز” الضيق)، ينسدل عليه قميص ملوّن يكاد يبلغ الركبتين، وتضع غطاء الرأس السوداني التقليدي (الطرحة). ما الـ “فاضح”، إذاً؟ وهل يشكّل هذا اللباس “مضايقة” للشعور العام، وعقوبة 40 جلدة؟
    يشير الكثيرون، بحقّ في الواقع، إلى أنّ ما وراء الأكمة هو غير ذاك الذي تذرعت به الشرطة، والباعث الحقيقي يتجاوز بكثير حكاية البنطال، ليبلغ شأو معاقبة الزميلة على ما تنشره من مقالات نقدية نارية ضدّ السلطة، في عمود شهير جسور يحمل العنوان الدالّ: “كلام رجال”. ولعلّ خدش حياء أهل السلطة، وليس الإخلال بالآداب العامة، هو الذي دفع رجال الشرطة إلى معاقبة الصحافية الشجاعة؛ وهذا ما دفعها إلى دعوة الرأي العام لكي يشهد محاكمتها وجلدها، ولكي تنقل إلى العلن نقاشاً آن أوانه، حول تلك المادّة الظلامية من القانون الجنائي السوداني.
    تقول لبنى أحمد حسين: “قضيتى هي قضية البنات العشر اللواتي جُلدن في ذات اليوم، وقضية عشرات بل مئات بل آلاف الفتيات اللواتى يُجلدن يومياً وشهرياً وسنوياً فى محاكم النظام العام بسبب الملابس، ثم يخرجن مطأطأت الرأس لأن المجتمع لا يصدّق ولن يصدّق أن هذه البنت جُلدت فى مجرد ملابس. والنتيجة الحكم بالإعدام الاجتماعى لأسرة الفتاة، وصدمة السكري أو الضغط أو السكتة القلبية لوالدها وأمها، والحالة النفسية التى يمكن أن تُصاب بها الفتاة، ووصمة العار التي ستلحقها طوال عمرها”.
    والحال أنّ همجية هذا الطراز من العقاب، أي جلد الأنثى بتهمة ارتكاب “أفعال فاضحة”، لا تتلاءم البتة مع تقاليد السودان التربوية والثقافية التي أسندت على الدوام، وما تزال تسند، إلى المرأة دوراً فاعلاً وحيوياً في الحياة العامة. ولولا هذه الخصوصية، كيف يمكن للمرء أن يفسّر تلك الدرجة العالية من “التسامح” التي يبديها الشيخ حسن الترابي تجاه الحقوق الشخصية للفرد عموماً، والمرأة خصوصاً؟ ألا يقول، في حوار شهير مع الصحافي الأمريكي ملتون فيورست: “الرسول نفسه أغلظ في القول للممتنعين عن الصلاة، ولكنه لم يتخذ أي إجراء بحقّهم. وتوجد فروض اجتماعية حول كيفية اختيار الرجال والنساء للباسهم، ولكن المسألة ليست جزءاً من القانون”؟
    وكما في كلّ شأن يمسّ الحرّيات العامة، سيما إذا تمّ انتهاكها على النحو المشين الذي تنتهي إليه المادّة 152، لا طائل من وراء استنكار هذه الوقائع بهدف تجميل الشريعة أو تنزيه الدين عن إلحاق الجور بالعباد، فالجوهر لا يكمن هنا في كلّ حال. المطلوب، في المقابل، هو إدانة ذلك البند في ذاته، وكلّ ما يشبهه أو يتكامل معه من قوانين، دون تأتأة أو مجاملة أو مراعاة أو مداهنة، فلا كرامة لنصّ يهدر كرامة الإنسان، وهذا هو الأصل والفصل، وهنا القاعدة والقياس. لقد وضعت لبنى أحمد حسين إصبعها على جرح مفتوح، يتوجب أن يُطهّر من القيح لكي يتعافى تماماً، عملاً بالمبدأ الذي كان الراحل الكبير محمود أمين العالم يلهج به: شاغبوا، تصحّوا!

    Sudan court adjourns woman's 'trouser trial'

    Module body

    Tue Aug 4, 10:22 AM



    Supporters of Sudanese journalist Lubna Ahmed al-Hussein, who faces 40 lashes for wearing trousers, demonstrate...



    KHARTOUM (AFP) - The trial of a Sudanese woman journalist who faces 40 lashes for wearing trousers was adjourned on Tuesday as police used tear gas to disperse hundreds of demonstrators outside the Khartoum court.



    The judge decided to delay the trial to September 7 to determine whether Lubna Ahmed al-Hussein, who also works with the United Nations, has legal immunity, defence lawyer Jalal al-Sayyid said.


    Hussein, who is in her 30s, has been charged with public indecency after she was arrested last month along with 12 other women who were wearing trousers at a Khartoum restaurant.


    She has said that she wants to be tried to challenge a law that decrees a punishment of whipping for people wearing "indecent" clothes, and told a hearing last week that she wished to waive her UN immunity.


    But in an apparent disagreement within her defence team, a lawyer nevertheless argued that she had immunity and asked the judge to ignore Hussein's wishes, Sayyid said.


    Police dispersed hundreds of women and activists from Sudanese opposition political parties who demonstrated in support of Hussein outside the courthouse after they tried blocking a road, an AFP correspondent reported.


    One of Hussein's lawyers, Manal Khawajali, said she was assaulted by police outside the court and would file a complaint.


    Emerging from the courtroom, Hussein again insisted she wanted to be tried and said she had resigned from her job at the UN's media office in Sudan so she no longer had immunity.


    "The court should not have delayed the trial," she told journalists after the closed-door hearing.


    However, Sayyid said the judge decided to ask the Sudanese foreign ministry to determine the immunity issue ahead of her next court date.


    Ten women have already been whipped for the same offence -- including Christians -- and Hussein has said she will fight a guilty verdict and the law itself.


    "I'm ready for anything to happen. I'm absolutely not afraid of the verdict," she told AFP in an interview on Monday.


    "If I'm sentenced to be whipped, or to anything else, I will appeal. I will see it through to the end, to the constitutional court if necessary.


    "And if the constitutional court says the law is constitutional, I'm ready to be whipped not 40 but 40,000 times," said Hussein, who also works for the left-wing Al-Sahafa newspaper.


    Hussein said she wants to fight to get rid of the law, saying it "is both against the constitution and sharia (Islamic law)."


    "If some people refer to the sharia to justify flagellating women because of what they wear, then let them show me which Koranic verses or hadith (sayings of the Prophet Mohammed) say so. I haven't found them," she said.


    Police have also cracked down on another woman journalist, Amal Habbani, who published an article in Ajrass al-Horreya newspaper (Bells of Freedom) entitled: "Lubna, a case of subduing a woman's body."


    Unlike in some other Arab countries, particularly in the Gulf, women have a prominent place in Sudanese public life. Nevertheless, human rights organisations say some of the country's laws discriminate against women.

    Sudanese Women Flogged for Wearing Pants
    CBNNews.com Thursday, July 16, 2009RSSPodcasts




    KHARTOUM - Sudanese police raided a café on Monday, arresting 13 women for wearing slacks, a violation of Sharia (Islamic) law.

    Ten of the 13 women chose a summary trial, after which they were flogged in public and fined 250 Sudanese pounds ($120 U.S. dollars).

    Sudanese "public order" police function similarly to Saudi Arabia's "religious" police, patrolling the streets to ensure adherence to Islam's legal code.

    Among its many prohibitions, Sharia law forbids men and women from associating with one another in public.

    Journalist Lubna Hussein was among those arrested on Monday. She and two other women opted for a full trial. If convicted, the women could be publicly flogged with up to 40 lashes.

    Hussein said she decided to speak out not only because she "didn't do anything wrong," but also because women endure flogging silently.

    "Let the people see for themselves," she said, after issuing printed invitations to the media and prominent citizens to attend her trial.

    "This is retribution to thousands of girls who are facing flogging for the past 20 years because of wearing trousers," she said, because "they prefer to remain silent."

    All three women will be assigned a trial date by the public prosecutor.

    KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) — Sudanese police fired tear gas and beat women protesting at the trial Tuesday of a female journalist who faces a flogging for wearing trousers in public.

    Sudanese journalist Lubna Hussein could receive 40 lashes if found guilty of violating the country's indecency law which follows a strict interpretation of Islam. The 43-year-old says the law is un-Islamic and "oppressive," and she's trying to use her trial to rally support to change it.

    "I am not afraid of flogging. ... It's about changing the law," Hussein said, speaking to The Associated Press after a hearing Tuesday.

    Hussein said she would take the issue all the way to Sudan's constitutional court if necessary, but that if the court rules against her and orders the flogging, she's ready "to receive (even) 40,000 lashes" if that what it takes to abolish the law.

    Photo
    Photo Hussein was among 13 women arrested July 3 in a raid by the public order police on a popular cafe in Khartoum. Ten of the women were fined and flogged two days later. But Hussein and two others decided to go to trial.

    In an attempt to rally support, Hussein printed invitations to diplomats, international media, and activists to attend her trial which opened last week. She also resigned from her job in the U.N.'s public information office in Khartoum, declining the immunity that went along with the job to challenge the law.

    Around 100 supporters, including many women in trousers as well as others in traditional dress, protested outside the court Tuesday.

    Witnesses said police wielding batons beat up one of Hussein's lawyers, Manal Awad Khogali, while keeping media and cameras at bay. No injuries were immediately reported.

    "We are here to protest against this law that oppresses women and debases them," said one of the protesters, Amal Habani, a female columnist for the daily Ajraas Al Hurria, or Bells of Freedom in Arabic.

    While the police broke up the demonstration outside the Khartoum Criminal Court, the judge adjourned Hussein's trial for a month to clarify whether her resignation has been accepted by the United Nations.

    The 1991 indecency law was adopted by Sudan's Islamic regime which came to power after a coup led by President Omar al-Bashir in 1989. It follows a strict interpretation of Islamic law that imposes physical punishment on "those who commit an indecent act that violates public morale; or who dress indecently."

    Trousers are considered indecent under the law. Activists and lawyers say it is implemented arbitrarily, and leaves the definition of "indecent acts" up to the implementing police officer.

    Hussein said the law is unconstituational, and is not supported by Islamic text. Flogging is a common punishment for drinking and making alcohol, and whatever else the law enforcer deems indecent. Recently, a famous Sudanese singer, who took to the stage under the influence of alcohol, was flogged.

    "Flogging is an insult to human dignity," Hussein said. "If the (rulers) claim this is based on Islamic Shariah (law), can anyone show me a verse in the Quran or in the prophet's teachings that speak of flogging women because of their dress code?"

    Rabie Abdel Attie, a government spokesman, called the uproar over the case politically motivated and said only the constitutional court can decide to repeal the law.

    "There is no need for all that noise. There are clearly political motivations behind this thrust," he said.

    The public order police force patrols the streets of Khartoum, enforcing an alcohol ban and often scolding young men and women mingling in public.

    Hussein said many women endure the flogging in silence, because they fear the stigma associated with being tried under the indecency law.

    Hussein wore the same clothes Tuesday that she wore when arrested, including the dark-colored pants that authorities found offensive. She said she is required to wear the outfit to court so officials can see the clothing when making their decision. But Hussein said she's also been wearing the outfit every day, even when not in court, to highlight her case.

    Her trial opened last Wednesday but immediately adjourned to give her the opportunity to resign from her U.N. job.

    U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he was "deeply concerned" about Hussein's case and that flogging is a violation of international human rights standards.

    The U.N. Staff Union urged authorities last week not to flog Hussein, calling the punishment cruel, inhuman and degrading.

    Sudanese women flogged for wearing trousers



    CAIRO -- Sudanese police arrested 13 women in a raid on a cafe and flogged 10 of them in public for wearing trousers in violation of the country's strict Islamic law, one of those arrested said Monday.

    The 13 women were at a cafe in the capital, Khartoum, when they were detained Friday by officers from the public order police, which enforces the implementation of Sharia law in public places.

    The force, which is similar to the Saudi religious police, randomly enforces an alcohol ban and often scolds young men and women mingling in public.

    One of those arrested Friday, journalist Lubna Hussein, said she is challenging the charges, which can be punishable by up to 40 lashes.

    "I didn't do anything wrong," Hussein said.

    Islamic Sharia law has been strictly implemented in Sudan since the ruling party came to power in a 1989 military coup.

    Public order cases usually involve quick summary trials with sentences carried out shortly afterward, as was the case with 10 of the women arrested Friday. They were flogged and fined 250 Sudanese pounds, or about $120.

    Hussein and two other women chose to go to trial. On Monday, she was summoned for questioning and now she awaits a decision from the prosecutor on when the case could go to trial.

    Women in northern Sudan, particularly in Khartoum, dress in traditional outfits that include a shawl over their head and shoulder. Western dress is uncommon.

    Still, the raid on a Khartoum cafe popular with journalists and foreigners was unusual.

    Hussein's lawyer, Nabil Adeeb, said action by the public order police is often arbitrary and aims "from time to time to let people know that big brother is watching you."

    Hussein said she decided to speak out because flogging is a practice many women endure in silence. She even sent printed invitations to the press and public figures to attend her expected trial.

    "Let the people see for themselves. It is not only my issue," she said. "This is retribution to thousands of girls who are facing flogging for the last 20 years because of wearing trousers," she said. "They prefer to remain silent."
