Sudan probing violations against protesters – PM


Sudan’s newly reinstated Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has said an investigation has been launched into violations committed against protesters since the military’s  power grab on October 25 2021

Hamdok made this known on Tuesday evening in a meeting with a group from the Forces of Freedom and Change (FFC), the main civilian coalition opposing military rule.

The group stressed during the meeting the importance of laying out a roadmap to implementing the political agreement, reversing all political appointments that took place after the military takeover and reinstating all those who were fired during that period.

Meanwhile, the Sudanese prime minister has announced a review of all appointments that were made during his detention following last month’s coup.

Abdalla Hamdok who was reinstated to his post on Sunday also ordered an end to the dismissals of officials.

When the country’s military chief, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, carried out the coup he dissolved all the country’s institutions and sacked many officials including the heads of state media, public companies and banks.

The prime minister is still without a government after being reinstalled in a controversial deal with General Burhan.

State media earlier quoted Hamdok as saying investigations would be carried out into recent violations against protesters.

Many Sudanese have demanded an end to military interference in the running of the country and want civilians in charge.
