UPDATE: Sudan: Lubna Hussein begins jail sentence
“Lubna has bravely sacrificed her freedom to free other women from the oppression of the law,” said Ahmed Elzobier, one of Ms Hussein’s supporters in Khartoum. “She is not guilty, but the police the court and the government are the guilty ones.”
“The campaign will continue,” Mr Elzobier added. “Although Lubna is going to prison the rest of her supporters will keep challenging these laws.”
Lubna Hussein has pointed out that this charge falls under ‘immoral’ or ‘indecent behaviour’, a charge which will remain on her record and that of the other women arrested. Although she she will not be flogged, this offence on her record is associated with prostitution and other 'immoral' behaviour.
