AFP News Agency report says, an award-winning Sudanese journalist has said she will go to jail rather than pay a fine after a court convicted her of preventing a security officer from doing his job.
However, Amal Habani, the winner of an Amnesty International prize for reporting on human rights in Sudan, was ordered to pay 10,000 Sudanese pounds ($1,400; £1,100) or face a jail term of four months.
She told AFP News that, "This is injustice. I was covering a trial of human rights activists [in March] when the security officer beat me".
"When I complained against him, he filed a case against me. I will not pay the fine but rather go to jail."
Her lawyer, Ahmed Elshukri, said he would appeal against the court's order.
Ms Habani writes for online Sudanese newspaper Al-Taghyeer.
