Sudan: Help Save Activist Dr. Mudawi

Dr. Mudawi Ibrahim Adam, a human-rights activist in Sudan, was re-arrested on May 8, only days after being released from his previous detention by the Sudanese regime:
For the third time in the last 18 months, Dr. Mudawi has been arrested in apparent reprisal for his human rights work in Darfur.

On May 8, only hours before he was to travel to Ireland to receive a prestigious award for his tireless promotion of human rights, Dr. Mudawi was arrested in Khartoum along with two others, Yasir Saleem and Abdalla Taha. Dr. Mudawi is chairperson of the Sudan Social Development Organization (SUDO), an organization actively monitoring human rights violations in Darfur.
