Sudan says SRF top military commander 'is alive'
May 11, 2013 (Sudan Tribune)
The National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) announced today that the General Chief of Staff of the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) Abdel-Aziz al-Hilu is alive and is running looting and killing activities in South Kordofan state against civilians.
The NISS media officer said in a statement carried by state news agency that al-HIlu is also administering court-martials in the states as recently as Saturday .
The statement puts an end to earlier assertions by several government officials about al-Hilu's death during last month's SRF's attack in North Kordofan.
This week the Chairman of the Foreign Affairs, Security and Defense Committee in the Sudanese National Assembly Mohamed al-Hassan al-Amin said that the latest information available shows that al-Hilu died after sustaining injuries and was buried in the city of Wau in South Sudan.
The NISS stressed that they know where al-Hilu is and that they are treating him as a "terrorist".
Al-Hilu conducted an interview with Sudan Tribune late last month and dismissed government reports speaking about his demise.
