Woman journalist flees abroad after mistreatment by intelligence agency

Reporters Without Borders is deeply relieved to learn that Somaia Ibrahim Ismail, a young woman journalist and activist who was kidnapped and tortured last week by the National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS), was able to flee the country late yesterday evening.

Also known as "Hundosa," Ismail was detained and mistreated because of her opposition to President Omar al Bashir’s government. Her jailers shaved her hair. She was told it was because "it looked like the hair of Arabs and she belonged to the slaves in Darfur.”

Reporters Without Borders has posted photos testifying to the mistreatment she received while held.

SOUDAN

La journaliste menacée par les services de renseignement a pu fuir le pays

Reporters sans frontières est profondément soulagée d’apprendre que Somaia Ibrahim Ismail "Hundosa", enlevée et torturée la semaine dernière par les services de renseignement et de sécurité soudanais (National Intelligence and Security Services - NISS), a pu fuir le pays, tard dans la soirée du 6 novembre 2012.

La jeune journaliste et activiste avait subi des sévices en raison de son opposition à la politique du président Omar el-Béchir. Ses geôliers lui ont rasé les cheveux parce qu’ils "ressemblaient à des cheveux d’Arabes alors qu’elle n’est qu’une esclave du Darfour". Reporters sans frontières publie sur son site Internet les images témoignant des mauvais traitements qu’elle a endurés pendant sa détention.
