KHARTOUM, Sep 7, 2004 (SUNA) — The Minister of Justice, Ali ‎Mohammed Osman Yassin [photo], has directed the Advisory Council ‎on Human Rights to follow up the case of the Sudanese ‎nationals who were detained in Greece and returned to Sudan ‎without any reasons.‎

The Rapporteur of the Advisory Council on Human Rights, Dr. ‎Abdul-Moneim Osman Mohammed Taha, said in a statement ‎to the Sudan News Agency that his department would prepare ‎a complaint to the European Union (EU) showing the violation ‎of the Greek authorities to their obligations under Article 9 of ‎the Universal Declaration on Human Rights that prevents ‎detention of any human being without reasons besides their ‎violation to the civil, political, economic, social and cultural ‎rights stipulated by the UN charters.‎

Taha added that the Advisory Council on Human Rights would ‎file the complaint to the joint technical committee with the EU ‎next week as part of the joint dialogue between Sudan and the ‎EU.‎

He pointed out that if the Advisory Council on Human Rights ‎did not receive what shows readiness of the Greek authorities ‎to resolve the issue it would file a complaint to European Court ‎of Justice in this regard.‎ It is worth mentioning that 24 Sudanese nationals left for ‎Athens to attend the Olympic Games after meeting all travel ‎conditions, but they were detained by the Greek Authorities at ‎the airport for a week, treated badly and returned to the ‎country.
