This is a current urgent action concerning a boy in Sudan. Magai was trying to stop his cousin fighting with another boy in the neighbourhood. He took his dad’s gun and fired it at the ground to scare the boy away. But the bullet ricocheted and hit his cousin, who later died in hospital.
In his trial Magai was not allowed a lawyer. He told the judge he was just 15, but he was sentenced to death regardless. This is illegal by both international and South Sudan law.
This is just to let you know that yesterday’s Guardian featured an AI ad with a text Action for Magai.
