Sudan human rights situation 'deteriorating': top lawyer

Human rights lawyer Nabil Adib speaks on the phone at his office during an interview with AFP on December 22, 2015 in the Sudanese capital KhartoumHuman rights in Sudan are deteriorating despite efforts by President Omar al-Bashir to hold talks with his opponents on the country’s many problems, a top lawyer told AFP on Tuesday. Bashir — wanted by the International Criminal Court over war crimes charges in the Darfur region — may have launched a national dialogue, but tight press and political freedoms remain in place, human rights lawyer Nabil Adib said. Bashir announced the talks in January 2014 in a bid to resolve the conflicts on Sudan’s border regions and its faltering economy.
