This letter expresses REDRESS’ deep concern about the possible transfer out of prison of former Sudanese President, Omar Al-Bashir, and other former regime members, in light of the COVID-19 health emergency. While REDRESS strongly supports measures to protect detained individuals’ rights to health and personal integrity, Covid-19 must not be a pretext for the unjustified release of those facing charges for serious international crimes. REDRESS calls on the UN Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in the Sudan to take note of this situation and to encourage the Sudanese authorities to adhere to international standards.
