To ask Her Majesty’s Government what representations they have made to the government of Sudan regarding the arrest of civilians participating in recent peaceful demonstrations.


Our Ambassador in Khartoum and the UK Special Representative for Sudan and South Sudan raised concerns about the Government of Sudan‘s response to recent protests in a meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs on 21 January.

We will continue to make clear to the Government of Sudan that it is crucial that the Sudanese people are allowed to exercise their right to freedom of expression. We urge those exercising their fundamental rights to express their opinions peacefully.
