The Law Society is concerned for the distinguished human rights lawyer Dr Amin Mekki Medani, current President of the Sudan Human Rights Monitor who, together with Farouq Abu Eissa, has been arbitrarily arrested and detained following his signing of the Sudan Call in Addis Ababa on 3 December 2014. It has been reported that Dr Amin Mekki Medani was arrested at his home in Khartoum just before midnight on 6 December 2014 and is currently being detained in an unknown location. We understand that nearly two weeks after his arrest, no charges have been brought against Dr Mekki.

Full intervention attached.
