Sudan military council allows peaceful atmosphere
for gathering of political forces to assume power

KHARTOUM Sudan (Xinhua) -- Sudan’s Transitional Military Council said on Saturday that its role is to prepare the atmosphere for the political forces to assume power in a peaceful and democratic way.

The council made the remark in a statement issued after a meeting between Omer Zainal-Abdin, chairman of the political committee of the military council, and Moussa Faki Mahamat, chairperson of the African Union Commission, in the capital Khartoum.

The meeting reviewed the African Union’s role in supporting Sudan in passing the important phase in its political history, said the statement.

For his part, Faki said Sudan is considered a pivotal country in Africa, pointing out that the African Union understands the popular revolution in Sudan and the main role played by the armed forces.

Consensus among the Sudanese political parties on an agreed transitional period is essential, he added.

Sudan’s transitional military council, chaired by Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan, is tasked with running the country following the ouster of President Omar al-Bashir.


Sudan military council vows to hand over power to people

KHARTOUM Sudan (Xinhua) -- Sudan’s Transitional Military Council on Sunday reaffirmed its commitment to hand over the power to the people.

"The role of the council is complementary to revolution, and handing over the power to the people was a demand of the revolution," said Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan, the council chairman, during an interview broadcast by Sudan’s official TV.

"The military council has no ambitions in power, and we are keen to begin the transitional period as soon as possible," added Al-Burhan.

He said the council has received more than 100 visions for solving the political crisis from various Sudanese political elements.

The council chairman vowed that no Sudanese political entity, except the former ruling National Congress Party, would be excluded during the transitional period.

In addition, he revealed that 7 million euros (7.87 million U.S. dollars), 350,000 dollars and billions of Sudanese pounds, all in cash, were found in the residence of ousted President Omar al-Bashir.

The money has been deposited in the Central Bank of Sudan, the chairman noted.

Sudan’s Transitional Military Council is tasked with running the country’s affairs following the downfall of al-Bashir’s regime.

Sudan to form higher committee to supervise investigation on corruption

KHARTOUM Sudan (Xinhua) -- Sudan’s acting attorney general on Saturday issued a decision to form a higher committee to supervise investigation on corruption, public funds and criminal cases in relation to recent protests, official SUNA news agency reported.

Al-Waleed Sid-Ahmed Mahmoud also issued a letter to the chief of National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) on lifting immunity of NISS’ members suspected of involvement in the killing of the activist Ahmed Al-Khair in Khashm el-Girba area in eastern Sudan during the popular protests.

On April 16, Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan, chairman of the Transitional Military Council, issued a decision to relieve Attorney General Omer Ahmed Mohamed Abdel-Salam, First Assistant Attorney General Husham Osman Ibrahim and the head of the public prosecutions Amer Ibrahim Majid from their posts.

The reshuffle in the judicial system apparently is aimed at meeting a top demand by the Sudanese protesters, who have continued their sit-in in front of the army’s headquarters in the capital Khartoum despite the ouster of President Omar al-Bashir on April 11.
