#SaveAsmirOmer, Student Tortured and Wrongfully Imprisoned
We, the undersigned, are extremely concerned about the well-being of Asim Omar, a university student who is currently imprisoned at Kober (aka Cooper) Prison in Khartoum, Sudan for a crime he has not committed.
According to his doctor, Asim was supposed to undergo surgery to treat injuries sustained from torture. However, the surgery has been postponed after the doctor examined Asim and assessed that he couldn’t operate on him because he is currently suffering from acute inflammation. The doctor has confirmed that Asim’s eardrum has been ruptured, which caused impaired hearing, and that surgical intervention is vital to avert total hearing loss.
Additionally, due to continual torture to extract an unsubstantiated confession, Asim suffers weakness in the seventh nerve, testicle injuries, and wounds to arms and legs.
Asim Omar has been imprisoned for over two years, and while the Supreme Court in Sudan has already dismissed the charges against him, Asim still remains in prison.
We, activists in the #SaveAsimOmer campaign, call upon human rights organisations and human rights activists worldwide to help save Asim’s life by writing to the government of Sudan and to their own governments with a call for his immediate and unconditional release from prison.
