"The international community has just been informed by a number of organisations, among them, the World Organization against Torture (OMCT) and Sudanese Human Rights Organisation (SHRO) in Cairo, that the Government of Sudan (GOS) arrested 38 Nuba women and 3 men on their way to a peace conference in Kauda in the Nuba Mountains. The international attempts of your government to show your commitment to human rights is being undermined by the inhumane arrests." This is according to a recent letter sent to the Government of Sudan by The International Committee in Support of Nuba Women and Children, in conjunction with the Sudanese Women and Human Rights Group.
