Sudanese refugees in Egypt

This is the BBC Arabic TV Open Agenda - اجندة مفتوحة on Sudanese refugees in Egypt It´s also available online, and can be found here.

I would like to point you in the direction of the world´s two most important Human Rights organisations Amnesty International and Human Rights, both of them have issued documents on the same issue. Human Rights has put out a statement and has an URGENT ACTION on two Sudanese refugees in Egypt that risks a forcible return to Sudan on April 12th - Mohamed Adam Abdallah and Ishaq Fadl Dafallah are both from the Zaghawa ethnic community in Darfur (Sudan), and were recognized as refugees by UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, in Egypt in 2009 because they would face persecution in Sudan if forcibly returned to that country.

They were arrested on August 4th 2009 in the town of Sheikh Zuwayid, close to Egypt’s border with Israel, where they said they had gone to provide assistance to Sudanese refugees and asylum-seekers. On April 6th 2010 Mohamed Adam Abdallah were transfered from Cairo to Aswan police station from where he is expected to be forcibly returned to Sudan by ship on 12 April.

Ishaq Fadl Dafallah is currently at Cairo’s Khalifa Police Station, which is used as a deportation centre, and is also expected to be moved soon to Aswan for forcible return to Sudan on 12 April.

Please participate in any way you can to try to stop this. share the information as widely as possible.

I´m sorry for the cut and paste style, i write this in a hurry, mostly because i think it´s very important, so once again bare with me this time.

And yes there´s both presidential and parliamentary elections in Sudan , but it´s for three days, so i might get back to that topic.
