Sudan security confiscates print-run of El Mijhar

December 7 - 2014 KHARTOUM

The print run of El Mijhar El Siyasi daily newspaper was confiscated by agents of the Sudan Intelligence and Security service (NISS) in Khartoum this morning.

According to journalists of El Jareeda newspaper, the Sunday issue of El Mijhar El Siyasi contained an interview with El Tom Hajo, senior member of the Democratic Unionist Party, and co-vice president of the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF), an alliance of the main rebel movements.

The SRF on Wednesday signed the Sudan Appeal in Addis Ababa, a political communiqué calling for regime change, together with National Umma Party leader El Sadig El Mahdi, head of the National Consensus Forces (a coalition of opposition parties) Faroug Abu Eisa, and chairman of the Sudanese Civil Society Initiative Amin Mekki Madani, and other opposition figures.

Abu Eisa and Madani, as well as Farah Agar, senior consultant of the Sudan People's Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N). were detained by NISS officers inside their homes in Khartoum on Saturday evening, a day after their return from the Ethiopian capital.
