SUDAN: THREE CONDEMNED TO HANG IN BURAM, SOUTH DARFUR
October 5, 2016: The Criminal Court of Buram in South Darfur sentenced three men to death for armed robbery, murder, and grievous bodily harm.
The offenses were committed in July last year, when five men attacked a commercial lorry on its way from Buram to El Radoom in South Darfur. The vehicle owner Fadul Abdallah Yasin was killed, and one of the passengers, Bashar Bashir Sakin, was seriously injured in the attack.
After convicting the men, the Judge saw no alternative but to hand-down the ultimate sentence. He stipulated that the men should hang. (Sources: allafrica.com, 06/10/2016)
