Lawyers call for investigation into UAE firms over mistreatment of Sudanese nationals

A group of Sudanese lawyers has commenced legal proceedings against a number of companies that purportedly collaborated with Black Shield, an Emirati security firm. 

Black Shield is said to have hired around 3,000 Sudanese nationals to work as security guards in hospitals and malls in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Instead, recruits were transferred to Libya to guard oil facilities under the control of Khalifa Haftar, Libya’s renegade general. Some men were also forced into a military training camp and then sent to fight as mercenaries in Libya and Yemen.    

At a press conference in Khartoum, the 15 Sudanese lawyers presented themselves as a voluntary body initiated to defend the rights of the Sudanese nationals returning from Libya and Yemen.
