Khartoum: The head of Sudan’s Sovereign Council and the military’s commander-in-chief, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, said on Tuesday that he was keeping Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok at his own home due to threats against him.
“The prime minister was at home [under house arrest] but we were afraid that he might get hurt, so now he is at my home. He’s fine, living a normal life. When the situation calms down and there will be no threats against him, he can return to his home,” al-Burhan told a press conference.
According to the top general, all detained politicians who have charges brought against them will be brought to trial, and the rest will be released. Al-Burhan mentioned that soldiers detained ministers due to threats to Sudan’s unity.
