UN expert calls for reform of Sudanese security forces


UN expert calls for reform of Sudanese security forces

Khartoum, Feb 3 (Prensa Latina) The UN expert on human rights Radhouane Nouicer asked the Sudanese military government to reform and demand accountability of the security services, press reported here.

Visiting the country since last Saturday, Noucer, a Tunisian national, met the day before with the president of the Sovereign Transitional Council, Abdel Fattah al Burhan, and other high-ranking officials, according to press reports.

Immunity from prosecution for members of the security forces implicated in human rights abuses must be lifted, the official said the day before during a press conference in the capital.

Members of the Sudanese security forces are accused of excessive violence in the dispersal of street marches demanding the return to the barracks of the militaries who have ruled this country since the overthrow, in 2019, of former President Omar al-Bashir.

The UN envoy’s visit began weeks after the start of a two-stage process designed to agree on the path and form of the return to constitutionality.

The dialogue has been semi-paralyzed since General al Burhan announced last week that he had stepped down from his role as mediator given the inability of the two civilian negotiating blocs to agree on the mechanisms of the talks.
