Detained students in Sudan to be released, banned from exams

Twenty-six Egyptian students were previously detained in the Sudanese capital for leaking exams

The Egyptian students who were being held in custody in Sudan for leaking exams and mass cheating will return to Cairo after a week-long detention in Khartoum.

Sudan’s embassy in Cairo said there will be no penalties against the students, although they have been banned from taking exams.

A group of 26 Egyptian secondary school students were arrested in Sudan in late March along with students of other nationalities on charges of mass cheating and leaking school exams.

Immigration Minister Nabila Makram travelled to Sudan on 29 March to discuss means of cooperation between Egyptian and Sudanese authorities to release the students.

Makram met with the parents of the arrested students and officials in the Sudanese foreign ministry and Egyptian embassy during her visit.
