Significant intimidation to security of Sudan opposition, after veiled elements stalked the Communist Party secretary

Al-Yurea-(local Media)- The Communist Party said that masked elements were lurking and scanning the party secretary, Mohamed Mokhtar al-Khatib in several incidents.

While underlining that this presents a dangerous menace because of the evolution of paramilitary elements wearing the head cover scarf the “Kadmol”, they put in place measures to protect his appearance in the capital Khartoum and the states and to secure his members and political secretary, who was followed by masked elements.

The Political Bureau of the Communist Party held a meeting to discuss the details of the security targeting of Political Secretary Mohamed Mokhtar al-Khatib, according to a statement issued by the party on Saturday .

In the statement, the communist promised that following and monitoring al-Khatib by masked paramilitary elements represented a “direct threat.”

The Politburo called on the “Communist Party’s own protection” bodies to take the protective measures and to address such threats.

Last week also witnessed another serious incident, where the leader of the Forces for Freedom and Change in Sudan (Central Council), Wajdi Saleh, said that an armed group tried at night to storm his house in the capital Khartoum.

Saleh, the rapporteur of the “de-empowerment” committee, explained to a correspondent for the Turkish Anadolu Agency that “a force of three individuals armed with Kalashnikov weapons and riding in three cars attacked the house, smashed surveillance cameras and external lighting and tried to break the outside door by force.”

“The armed force tried to enter the house violently, and when it failed it withdrew a distance from the house and began to stalking,” he said.

Regarding the purpose of the attempt to break into his home, Saleh replied that “all possibilities are there, perhaps an attempt at terrorism or a message of intimidation.”

He added: “So far, no security or police services have arrived to find out about the situation, and we are in a state of assessment of the situation, and I will not let the issue pass without calculation, and I will not retreat from my positions.”

Police spokesperson Brig. Gen. Abdullah Bashir, in a statement to Anatolia, denied knowledge of an attempt to storm the house of Wajdi Saleh by an unidentified armed force.

“The proper procedure is for Wajdi Saleh to open a report with the police, to follow up the procedures so that the law takes its course,” Bashir said.

The Forces for Freedom and Change (the Central Council) are the former governing coalition and are among the political components rejecting extraordinary measures imposed by army chief Abdel Fattah al-Burhan on October 25, 2021.

On December 10, 2019, Burhan issued a decision to form a de-empowerment committee to “end the control of the symbols of the regime of ousted President Omar al-Bashir over the joints of the state, fight corruption, and recover stolen assets.”

But Burhan froze the work of the committee “until the review of its work law and taking a position on it,” as part of his exceptional decisions, which included declaring a state of emergency, dissolving the Sovereign Councils and transitional ministers, exempting governors, and arresting party leaders, ministers and officials.
