The El Tawasul Party has added its voice to the call on the EU to take control over the spending of €100 million allocated to the Sudanese government to combat human trafficking and illegal immigration.

It described the government’s stance in the fight against human trafficking as negative.

The Party’s, head, Idris Shedali, say that the government is not being serious in the fight against the human trafficking gangs.

He demanded the presence and participation of the EU on the ground, to monitor and evaluate the situation and listen directly to the victims.

Shedali referred to “the growth of human trafficking crime in eastern Sudan which is now affecting the local population after it was previously limited to refugees from neighbouring countries”.

He also denounced “the complicity of the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) forces with human trafficking gangs”, which he said are “organised and possess modern weapons and vehicles”.

He also accused the NISS and police of “committing abuses against the refugees from neighbouring countries”.
