On 14 February, a wide-ranging ruling to prosecute members of the former National Congress Party (NCP) over violent protests, across the country and the capital Khartoum, was issued by the committee tasked with eliminating the government of Sudan’s ousted president Omar al-Bashir. The decree demands action against all leaders and cadres of the dissolved NCP.
Last week, supporters of the NCP conducted violent protests in the capital Khartoum as well as other major cities in the country. In these protests, government and private property was set on fire and pillaged. Looting has also taken place in some markets in protests of increased inflation, caused by fuel and bread shortages.
