Dr. Bushra had been transferred before to the prosecutor of the Crime Against the State, after strong appeals and support by his lawyers, the Prosecutor released Mr. Bushra and found no evidents of any crimes against the state under the Sudanese laws and constitution, but he had never left the prosecutor office, he had been returned back to the NISS detention , with complete ignorance for the Prosecutor decision . After these incidents, Bushra remained detained in unknown place disconnected from the outside world denied any family visits or lawyers visits, but his lawyers didn’t gave up and continued the pressure.
The NISS failed to provide enough evidents of the charges against Dr. Gamar of crimes against the state for more than 2 months , therefore the prosecutor finally accepted the appeal to release Gamar on the ground of lack of evidents , on March 15th 2012 , the prosecutor decided for the second time to issue the release of him , but in the way out of the prosecutor office the police officer had a call from the NISS , ordering him to take Dr. Bushra back to the Kobar prison , also against the prosecutor order .
