National Congress Rejects Description of Armed Forces' Repulse to Rebellion in South Kordofan as Escalation

14 June, 2011 (SUNA)

The National Congress has rejected the description of the government repulse to rebellion of Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) in South Kordofan as escalation, stressing that what was done was a measure aimed for protecting the citizens and keeping security.

The Secretary of Information of the National Congress, Prof. Ibrahim Ghandour, regarded in a press statement that the acts done by the SPLM, led by Abdul-Aziz Al-Hillo, in South Kordofan as a crime aimed for killing and displacement of families and innocent citizens a matter which necessitated dealing with this crime in a suitable legal deterrence.

He ruled out engagement in negotiations with those holding arms in South Kordofan with remaining elements of the SPLM on ground that such an issue was determined by the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA).

Prof. Ghandour emphasized that existence of any forces other than the Armed Forces after July 9 will be unlawful and illegal.

He described as wise the SPLM leaderships which had rejected the conduct of Al-Hillo.

He strongly denied the claims on existence of crimes of war and crimes against humanity, refuting the false allegations circulated by Luka Piong and a number of the SPLM leaders in this regard.

Prof. Ghandour said that Luka Piong was one of the persons who instigated Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) to attack the Armed Forces in Abyei, a matter which resulted in the current situation.
