Human Rights Committee
From the report:
... regarding complaints about disappearances and extra-judicial executions, the delegation said that there had been no such cases in the country since the submission of the report. A report of extra-judicial executions presented by Amnesty International in connection to a "rebellion" was untrue.
Regarding the practice of the death penalty, the delegation said that capital punishment was still carried out on persons whose lives endangered or corrupted society. It was also applied to "economic crimes".
"The Committee noted that the alleged victim's brother had provided information which showed that Mr. Mohammed Bashir El-Megreisi was detained incommunicado for more than three years, until April 1992, and again after April 1992. The State party had not disputed these facts. The Committee found that Mr. El-Megreisi, by being subjected to prolonged incommunicado detention in an unknown location, was the victim of torture and cruel and inhuman treatment.
