Sudanese president orders investigation into DRA fight
President Omar Al Bashir issued a presidential decree on Sunday ordering an investigation into the fight that erupted between parties of the Darfur Regional Authority (DRA) in the El Salam Rotana Hotel in Khartoum last Wednesday.
During the DRA’s inauguration ceremony of Phase Two of the Darfur development projects, former members of the National Liberation and Justice Movement (NLJM) headed by DRA chairman Dr El Tijani Sese, stormed the podium.
They demanded to read a statement in protest against the NLJM’s way of working concerning the Darfur development projects. When this was refused, they began to riot and attacked a DRA Minister. The police intervened and contained the situation.
President Al Bashir appointed Minister of Justice Hassan Awad as chairman of the investigation committee and Minister of the Federal Affairs Chamber, Feisal Hassan Ibrahim, and Deputy Chief of Justice, Idris Awad El Majeed as members.
The committee is to submit its report to the president within one week.
