A Khartoum criminal court resumed hearing the prosecution's witnesses on Thursday in the trial of opposition leader Faroug Abu Eisa and human rights activist Dr Amin Mekki Madani. The sitting is adjourned to Monday.
Abu Eisa, 82 years, and Madani, 76, signed the Sudan Appeal document in Addis Ababa last year and consequently were accused by Sudan upon their return to Khartoum of instigating violence and undermining the country’s constitution. They have been detained since 6 December.
A source told Radio Tamazuj that two witnesses appeared before the court yesterday, including a perfume seller at the Sudanese Observatory for Human Rights.
Omar Abdelati reportedly defended the two opposition leaders. The presiding judge adjourned the sitting to next Monday.
Last week, the court listened to witnesses from the security service.
Since the start of the trial against the two opposition figures on 23 February, two of their court sessions were accompanied by street protests outside the Khartoum North criminal court.
