The Security Services’ Coordination Committee in Khartoum State issued a statement on Tuesday saying that “all students belonging to the armed rebel movements are prohibited from carrying any activity, organising a gathering or a demonstration, as they are affiliates of these movements waging war on the government”.
The authorities consider the students’ activities in Khartoum as “an extension of the war, the looting and burning in the field,” according to the statement, released by the Sudan News Agency (SUNA) on Tuesday.
“The security services will fiercely fight and deter the practices of groups belonging to the armed movements.”
“Activities inside their headquarters are allowed to take place without a permit from the competent authorities,” he added. “Yet, if those activities are carried out in public places, a permit must be obtained.”
