Release all detainees

It is interesting to note that the political agreement signed between the army chief, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan and Hamdok, included in the twelfth clause the release of all political prisoners.

Yesterday, Sunday, the presidential palace witnessed the signing ceremony of the political agreement between Hamdok and Al-Burhan, in the presence of the vice president of the Council, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, nicknamed Hemedti.

This took place after the terms of the agreement were read, which provided for the release of all political detainees and the initiation of a dialogue between all political forces to establish the constitutional conference, as well as canceling the decision of the commander of the army of raise the premier.

It also stipulated the swift completion of all transitional government institutions.

However, this agreement did not satisfy some civilian groups, which in previously formed the Prime Minister’s political incubator, led by the Association of Professionals, and a section of the Forces for Freedom and Change.
