Sudan government awaits experts from abroad to investigate assassination attempts on Prime Minister Hamdok
Nov 09, 2020(Nyamilepedia) — The Republic of Sudan is awaiting technical support from abroad that will assist in conducting investigations into the attempted assassination on the prime minister Abdalla Hamdok on March 20 this year.
The Sudanese Attorney General, Taj al-Sir al-Hebir said that his office had resorted to foreign experts to help them to decipher some codes used by the terrorists to try to assassinate the country’s Prime Minister.
“The investigation into the assassination attempt on Hamdok is awaiting technical support from abroad. Also, a number of suspects have been arrested under investigation,” Al-Hebir said on Sunday.
According to the Attorney General, dealing with terrorist organizations requires a high level of technical capabilities.
He went on to say that the lock down that happened because of the COVID-19 caused the delay of the experts expected to assist in the assassination investigations.
Back in March, unknown people attempted to blast the prime minister’s convoy as he was headed to his office near the north-eastern entrance to Kober bridge, which connects Khartoum North to the city centre, where the prime minister’s office is.
As luck would have it, PM Abdalla Hamdok survived the assassination attempt.
After the attempt, he informed the people of Sudan that he was safe in his office.
“I would like to assure the people of Sudan that I am safe and in good shape,” Abdalla Hamdok has tweeted.
He added that what had happened would be “an additional push to the wheel of change in Sudan”, where he heads a transitional government following the military took over in April last year from the country’s longtime President Omar Hassan al-Bashir in the face of months-long pro-democracy protests.
Taj al-Ser Ali al-Hebr had said in a statement that prosecutors have embarked on their investigation into the “professionally plotted” attack.
Authorities, who sought help from foreign FBIs arrested a number of suspects in connection with what the government called an assassination attempt against Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok.
