Oscars Film Judge Among Among The Artists Sentenced To Jail


Sudanese filmmaker, Hajooj Kuka is one of the six artists sentenced to two months in jail at the central Khartoum court following charges of public nuisance and disruption of public safety.

Hajooj Kuka is a member of the Oscars academy. The artistes were arrested in August after their play rehearsal was disrupted by attackers.

However, the human rights campaigners said that the Sudan’s judiciary and police are still staffed by loyalists of the old Omar al-Bashir regime, and that the oppressive laws put in place at the time are still being used to suppress every right of freedom of expression.
