"Member of SOAT and journalist Faisal el Bagir was arrested on October 7, 2002, and questioned about an international conference organized by the International Freedom of Expression Exchange (IFEX) and International Media Support (IMS) on press freedoms that he attended in Senegal. The Director of Khartoum Centre for Human Rights, Amir Mohamed Suleiman, was questioned about the Centre's activities. The Khartoum Centre is under close surveillance by security forces. SOAT believes these surveillance methods prevent human rights defenders from fully exercising their rights of freedom of movement, association, and expression." [4]
