Sudan’s public prosecutor dismissed and Bashir-era official rearrested

SUDAN WATCH- The six-week blockade on Sudan’s main port has been lifted following last week’s military coup, Reuters reports, citing an announcement by the Beja tribal group that controls the port. The blockade, which the group said would be lifted for a month, had led to shipments being re-routed through Egypt and wheat and fuel shortages in Khartoum. The Beja group had used the blockade to call for Sudan’ civilian leaders to be replaced by technocrats, among other demands.

Sudan’s public prosecutor was dismissed on Sunday, TRT World reports, citing Sudanese state TV, becoming the latest in a string of officials to be relieved of their posts since the coup. Meanwhile, former Bashir regime insider Ibrahim Ghandour was taken back to prison today after having been released in recent days along with other former officials, Al Arabiya reported.
