The University of Khartoum Lecturers Initiative has called for the formation of a commission of inquiry to investigate the destruction suffered by the university and to bring the perpetrators to a fair trial.

The Initiative said in a statement on Tuesday that government forces plundered and destroyed the University of Khartoum in conjunction with the bloody dispersal of the sit-in in front of the general command last week.

It pointed to the destruction of the doors of the offices of professors and the looting and destruction of its contents and encroachment on academic offices and laboratories and looting and burning of the university hospital.

The statement said that the attack on the university was in full view of the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) main government militia, which are now stationed inside and around the university.
