EU says Sudan military council bears responsibility for bloody attack


June 17, 2019 (KHARTOUM) - The European Union Monday said the ruling Military Transitional Council (TMC) bears the responsibility for the bloody violence on protesters and warned that it would only support Sudan when a civilian-led government is formed.

Last Thursday, TMC Spokesperson Shams al-Din Kabbashi admitted the killing of over 100 protesters was committed by army officers who acted against the instructions of the military leadership as they had been ordered to only "clean" another area not far from the sit-in area.

Also, a military investigation committee confirmed that the d that a number of army officers of various ranks were responsible for the attack.

In a statement released on Monday, the Council of the European Union "firmly" condemned the attack of 3 June.

"It is clear that the responsibility lies with the Transitional Military Council (TMC) as the authority in charge of protecting the population," stressed the Council.

The statement further called to investigate in an independent and transparent manner all human rights violations and abuses committed during the attack.

The opposition Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) suspended negotiation over transitional period structures with the military council and declared general strike after what it termed as a "massacre of peaceful protesters".

However, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has successfully convinced the stakeholders to resume discussions.

Also, the opposition coalition suspended a general strike as a confidence-building measure and the TMC released the political detainees. Nonetheless, the latter refused to lift the internet blackout and withdraw the militiamen deployed in the residential areas in Khartoum.

On the other hand, the Council underscored its support for the African Union decision to suspend Sudan’s membership in the regional organisation until the power handover to a civilian-led authority.

"A civilian-led transitional authority is the only partner with which EU-Sudan relations can be normalised," said the European Union.

"When Sudan embarks on a transition to civilian rule, the EU looks forward to supporting the country in tackling the social, economic and political challenges and implementing the necessary reforms, and will provide assistance accordingly," added the statement.

    That the EU will only help a civilian government in North Sudan? My arse. What help did the EU gave Libya, Central Africa republic (CAR), Gambia and Zimbabwe after they regime change those governments? Back to the EU backyard, Ukraine, what did the EU did? Absolutely nothing, but to divide Ukraine people amongst themselves. Crimea has gone to Russia federations and Eastern Ukraine is going to follow suit. Russia federations was being relentlessly encroached upon by the NATO war hawks and now their dirty game had badly exploded on the creeps evil faces>>>

      The real problem here in Africa is a sheer stupidity otherwise the criminals in Europe and shouldn’t be lecturing anyone again in the 21st century about anything. Many African criminals who even consider themselves African leaders have turned out to be ’Europeans, the Americans and gulf Arab states’ busybodies or agents to impose their interests over other countries the Europeans, the US and gulf Arab states have interests in. And these Europeans, the US and gulf Arab states puppets/stooges are our Riek Machar, Thabo Mbeki and other bunch of losers dressed in their *African and regional integration* piece of crap.>>>

        When Libya was bombed by the US, the UK and France as mercenaries and were paid by the gulf Arab states, the African countries or the AU cowered like goats being led into the Nile. But when it comes to South Sudan small issues then every piece of trash here in our IGAD and the AU would want to be anyone over South Sudan and the South Sudanese people. Now the same EU, the US and the gulf Arab states’ puppets/stooges have ’shifted’ their focus to North Sudan Sudan is where their Europeans, the Americans and their gulf Arab states paymasters want them to be at the front and the EU, the US and gulf Arab states behind the scenes>>>

          Pathetic indeed. a South African criminal, Mr. Thabo Mbeki whom his ancestors let Dutch and English people took over his country has been employed by the criminals in the US, the UK and their gulf Arab paymasters to convince the South Sudanese Ngok Dinkas/Jiengs of Abyei and two states of Southern Khardupan and Southern blue Nile to welcome Arabs, white people, Abeshas (so-called ethiopians) or Bantuses into our country just like the losers did in their country. The criminalust be very careful>>>>

            I mean the criminal must be very careful. Our ancestors wrongly welcomed the Arabs into our country ages eons ago. And now it has becomes our biggest nightmare to push these vermin back to Yemen and Saudi Arabia and some of their lslamic pilgrims to West Africa and Northern Nigeria. Even some Northern Nigeria *Fulanis/Falatas* who brought to work in Central Sudan’s ’Gezira irrigation schemes’ as ’slaves to produce sugarcane for British in early 20th century just don’t want to take their arses back to Northern Nigeria>>>

The Dinkas/Jiengs who were in Riek Machar zone of deployment were all killed. Here in greater Bor, Mr. Riek Machar unleashed his marauding Nuers to come and destroy Bor when the Bor young men were on the ’seech of Juba’ to capture it. And the seech of Juba was aborted to look to tackle the SPLA March to Khartoum. Mr. Riek Machar, Lam Akol and other traitors went and signed bogas>>>

In 2016, Mr. Riek Machar and his foreign puppets/stooges brazenly took another attempt to take power by force and was moved to Khartoum from DR Congo jungle and to South Africa. And now, the traitors are back in Khartoum, North Sudan and they are being used by their foreign masters as their *blackmails and bargaining cards* over South Sudan and the South Sudanese people to achieve their interest dirty and evil interests>>>
