Civilians convicted by military court in Sudan

Nine civilians have been convicted by a military court in Sudan. The Darfur and Nuba Bar Associations have objected:
“The entire process of these unfair convictions constitutes a violation of the Sudanese Interim Constitution, as well as of the general principles set forth in Article IV of the Criminal Procedure Code of 1991.”
“We had already raised a constitutional appeal at the Sudanese Constitutional Court against Article 185/1 of the Armed Forces Act, which permits the trial of civilians in a military court. We are now working on an appeal against the sentences of the nine citizens convicted on Sunday, on the basis that the process contradicts the requirements of justice.”
