Salma Al Tigani Daffalla Mohamed (also known as Salma Al Tigani)
|Year of birth:||
Journalist for Sudanese newspapers Akhbar Al Watan and Al Baath
After Al Tigani wrote an article about the crimes of genocide committed in the Marrah Mountains region of Darfur for a foreign Arab newspaper in June 2018, the Sudanese embassy present in the country pressured the newspaper not to publish any more of her articles.
In July 2018, Al Tigani wrote an article about the International Criminal Court’s request to apprehend the president of Sudan, which was published on both Akhbar Al Watan and Al Baath. On July 25, 2018, the NISS banned her from writing in any Sudanese newspaper by ‘blacklisting’ her. On that day, the NISS summoned the editors of Akhbar Al Watan and Al Baath and informed them of their decision to ban the publication of Al Tigani’s articles in all Sudanese newspapers.
