Coup d'état in Sudan: The AU suspends the country of its instances, the arrests multiply
© RFI / Miguel Martins The headquarters of the African Union in Addis Ababa. At the end of a long meeting, the African Union Peace and Security Council decided to "suspend" the Sudan of the AU's bodies until the power of a transitional government led by civilians. At the same time, the arrests of civilians continue in Khartoum.
To save the country, already stuck in the political and economic marasm, "the only solution is to return to the constitutional declaration and immediately release all political prisoners," says Mahdi.
In 2019, when soldiers and civilians have joined Sudan to its first free election for decades, they have ratified a "constitutional declaration" providing for the creation of a council of military-civilian sovereignty and a government, as the first step.
Several institutions like Parliament and the Constitutional Court had to follow, but have never been born. As for the Council of Sovereignty, it was to be given to the civilians who would lead alone the country to democracy, but as far as the deadline, General Burhane intervened, plunging Monday the country into the unknown.
Since then, the list of opposition figures at the stopped coup continues to lie down. Among them is the brother of the minister, Sedig al-Sadeq al-Mahdi, number two as she from the Oumma party, the greater Sudanese party founded by their father.
"We still have no news of those who have been arrested," deplores Ms. Mahdi, herself imprisoned under the regime of Bashir, that she announced wishing to submit, on behalf of her country, to the International Criminal Court (ICC) two months ago.
Currently behind the bars in Khartoum, Mr. Bashir is particularly sought after by the Tribunal in The Hague for "Genocide" in the deadly conflict in Darfur (East).
"We are a whole people in arrest because we can no longer have news of each other", regrets Ms. Mahdi.
Since Monday, telephone communications and a fortiorly the Internet have remained most of the time in the country, a radio silence to which the international community has called up.
