The liquidation committee of the dissolved National Congress Party in Sudan issued a large-scale order to prosecute the remnants of the party, after days of violent protests across the country.
A statement issued early Thursday directs the committee to dismantle the 30th of June 1989 system and recover public funds, to take criminal measures by the Public Prosecution against all symbols of the dissolved National Congress Party and its active cadres and leaders and facades in the center and states.
Today, Thursday, the Public Prosecution Office issued an arrest warrant for eight of Bashir’s allies.
Hamdok, whose new government was sworn in on Wednesday, has formed a working group of ministers to monitor the situation after the protests.
The committee charged with dismantling Al-Bashir’s ruling apparatus said that it “possessed sufficient information about the activities of the dissolved party members and their organization of burning, looting and terrorizing unarmed citizens.”
Governors of several states considered the demonstrations to be different from other peaceful demonstrations organized to protest the worsening economic crisis.
Protests organized by loyalists of the Bashir era over the past few days have taken a violent turn in major cities across Sudan, as government buildings and vehicles were set ablaze and property looted.
Markets were also looted in several cities, and a spokesman for the committee described the situation as an “economic war” against Abdullah Hamdok’s government, which is struggling with high prices and shortages of fuel and bread.
