Who was behind the overthrow of the President in Sudan. The FNA’s investigation

2356

The meekness of the government and a case of a blatant foreign intervention. How a peaceful protest of the Sudanese people was abused  by the United States, Britain and other allied States – read in the Federal news Agency’s (FNA) investigation.

Russian experts from the protection of national values fund have repeatedly warned President Omar al-Bashir about the threat of revolution in the Sudan, if he does not begin to work to overcome the beginning of the economic crisis. Clear recommendations of the Russians were ignored, time was lost, and in the second half of December 2018 "bread rallies"began in Sudan.

Initially, people started to protest against the increase of bread prices. However, peaceful demonstrations quickly turned into riots and pogroms due to the actions of provocateurs demanding the overthrow of the current government.

Just a few days after the start, the protests slowly died out, as the President of the Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, finally began to take active measures aimed at improving the socio-economic situation in the country.

However, on April 4, 2019, protests erupted with renewed vigor, and on the 11th, as a result of the "drum revolution," Omar al-Bashir was dethroned and taken under house arrest. As reported by the FNA correspondents, the people of the Sudan consider it their own victory, but we decided to find out what really led to the current situation in this African country.

Russian experts warned you

Since May 2018, Russian experts from the protection of national values fund have been working with the Republic of Sudan. In August of the same year, after three months of observation and research , the country's leadership was presented with an overview of the depressing state of the economy, which can lead to a revolution. Russian experts gave the authorities the main advice: the political elite should stop plundering the budget.

As a source, who was familiar with the situation, told the FNA, according to Russian political analysts, the crisis could have intensified in the next 6-12 months, which had ultimately happened.

However, on September 10,according to the FNA source, the new Cabinet of Ministers did not adopt recommendations on rapid reforms, such as the liberalization of the national currency exchange rate, the state subsidies system reform and the transition to targeted assistance, tighter control over the production and export of gold. It was also proposed to limit the participation of local intelligence services in the economy of the state, to revise tax incentives and to conduct capital Amnesty programs. In addition, it was recommended to facilitate bureaucratic procedures for conducting business.

According to the FNA’s source, Russian experts offered liberal economist Tariq Shelabi, who shared the need for urgent reform and had a good education and experience in a developed market economy, for the post of Minister of Finance and Economic Development. But instead of him, Mutaz Musa took the post and started combining it with the post of theprime minister.

Since none of the recommendations were accepted, and the passive work of the cabinet led to a rapid deterioration of the situation, in February 2019, Omar al-Bashir disbanded the government. However, the situation in Sudan could not be remedied.

Western countries have joined in to abuse the political crisis, which began because of the unwillingness of the Sudanese leadership to listen to Russian experts, bringing the situation to the overthrow of the president with their blatant interference.

The work of Western political strategists

The Federal News Agency has repeatedly reported on the facts of foreign interference in the internal affairs of the Sudan, which eventually led to the resignation of Omar al-Bashir.

The National Treasurers Security Fund recently confirmed that the work of Western political strategists was clearly traced during the demonstrations in December. They created positive images of "oppositionists" and protesters, provided demonstrations with financial, technical and information support.

For example, ways to bypass blocking were widely spread on the Internet, as well as contacts of CNN, the New York Times newspaper and the British media company "BBC" among the protesters and through social networks.

PROTEST SYMBOLS

In the investigation of the US failure in the Madagascar elections, the Federal news Agency has already noted that the so-called "Soros fist and its variations — the main symbols of the "color revolutions" and the signs of Western interference were used during the rallies in Sudan.

But, as we said above, in addition to the past operations, Western political strategists created the images they needed using the protesters themselves.

In the investigation of the US failure in the Madagascar elections, the Federal news Agency has already noted that the so-called "Soros fist and its variations — the main symbols of the "color revolutions" and the signs of Western interference were used during the rallies in Sudan.

But, as we said above, in addition to the past operations, Western political strategists created the images they needed using the protesters themselves.

If in December there was a nameless protester with a stone in his hand and two raised fingers ("hand of victory"), then in April actions, aimed to form a positive image of the "revolution" in Sudan, Western experts took the process more carefully.

SUDANESE “STATUE OF LIBERTY”

On April 8, in the midst of the rally activity on Twitter, a photo of the girl named Alaa Salah begins to spread around.

At the moment of the suspiciously good picture, she is standing in white clothes on the roof of the car with the protesters around her. singing her "revolutionary" song, which was popular among the Sudanese during the demonstrations in 2018, as well as the riots in September 2013.

Alaa Salah's image quickly went viral. One of its first publications gained at the time of publishing 20 thousand retweets and 69 thousand "I like" marks. However, it was not accidental.

Too much of a coincidence

The Western media, among which were BBC, RFI, France 24, CNN were actively involved in the promotion of the image and personality of the girl, and the Guardian actually interviewed Salah on the day of resignation of al-Bashir.

Alaa Salah's outfit is different from other protesters' clothes, which is clearly seen in group photos. According to a local Twitter source, the suit refers to "clothes worn by mothers and grandmothers in the 60s, 70s and 80s. They dressed like this during a march through the streets, protesting against previous military dictatorships." This indicates that the young girl worked with image specialists.

The handwriting of Western political strategists can be traced in the fact that a girl was chosen a symbol of the "revolution" in a Muslim country.

This was told to us by a source among the opposition, who wished to remain unknown. According to him, the Sudanese society, due to its traditions and religion, would never have recognized Alaa Salah as a symbol of "revolution" without an external incentive.

It was striking that the account of “revolutionist” on Twitter, where she immediately became a star, was created on April 8, although, according to her, she participates in the "revolution" from its very beginning — December 19, 2018.

Even after President Omar al-Bashir and the former head of the Transitional military Council, Awad Ibn Auf, were dismissed one by one, the “symbol of the Sudan Revolution” continues to be promoted on social networks. Probably Alaa Salah has yet to fulfill her main purpose, which was prepared to her by Western political strategists.

However, there are more obvious signs of foreign interference in the internal Affairs of the Sudan. The vast majority of Sudanese oppositionists who called for the "overthrow of the Omar al-Bashir’s regime", they either openly cooperated with Western countries, or live on their territory permanently.

Provocateurs and leaders

One of the political forces behind the protests in the Sudan was the Sudanese Congress party. This organization is not numerous, but it has an extensive structure with representatives in all States of the country and was established on the basis of student organizations involved in mass protests in 1985, during which President Gaafar Nimeiry was dismissed.

Activists of the "Sudanese Congress" do "trainings for political personnel" and participate in field seminars in the territories of European States. Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD) and Conflict Dynamics International (CDI) organize them. The first is financed from the UK budget through the Ministry of foreign Affairs and UKAID. The second is a non-profit organization registered in  Cambridge, USA.

According to the information published on the CDI website in autumn 2018 (protests began in December), more than 75 young people were trained in Sudan to "implement the ideas of political reforms."

According to the information available to FNA, among them were those provocateurs who provoked riots during the December protests.

That’s when Omar Yusuf al-Digeir, Chairman of the Sudanese Congress, was arrested for calling for the overthrow of Omar al-Bashir.

The party’s official Facebook page is administrated by the people from several countries. 5 of them are from UK, 3 are from France, 3 are from Saudi Arabia, 1 is from Australia and 1 is from Ireland. There’s also one more whose location is hidden.

Sudanese Congress Party supported another political power called “Sudanese Association of professionals”, which is also managed from abroad.

Professionals from abroad

The “Sudanese Association of professionals” (SAP), a de facto non-governmental labor union organization, also contributed to the overthrow of Omar al-Bashir.

Meanwhile, one of the prominent members of the SAP, Muhammad al-Asbat Ahmad, has been living in Paris since 2015, which does not prevent him from telling the West about the situation in Sudan and participating in the political life of his country.

Hadja Fadul Kurundes is another important figure of the Sudanese Professional Association. Hadja Fadul Kurundes lived in the UK for a long time. She represents Teachers Union, which is a part of the SPA. Now she is one of the speakers of the Association.

It is noteworthy that only one of the administrators of SPA community on Facebook lives in Sudan. Two of them are in the UK, one is in Kenya, one is in the the Saudi, and another one is in the USA.  Two are in the UK, one in Kenya, one in Saudi Arabia, one in the US. As in the case of the Sudanese Congress, among the moderators of the SPA group there is one who has hidden his location.

Location is hidden

A similar situation can be seen in the group of the opposition party "Ummah", led by Sadiq al-Mahdi.

There are 12 administrators from Saudi Arabia, 3 - from the US ,1- from the UK 1. As in the previous two, one of the "moderators" hide his location. More like a pattern than a coincidence.

It is noteworthy that the head of the "Ummah" Sadik al-Mahdi studied in Oxford, then lived for a long time in the UK, and in March 2018 went to France. Therefore, it seems rather suspicious that al-Mahdi actually led the protests when he returned to Sudan with the beginning of the December demonstrations.

Remote access to protests

Among the protest communities on Facebook there are those with no administrators living in Sudan. For example, communities of the "Sudanese civil disobedience on November 27" movement  are being moderated from the USA, Great Britain and other non-African countries.

‘’Foreign countries will help us‘’

Protests in Sudan were supported from abroad and offline. With the beginning of December rallies in Sudan, rallies in support of the protesters were held at Sudanese embassies in several countries: the United States, Great Britain, Germany, France and many other. The action continues now at the Sudanese Consulate in Washington. Although, it seems that the aim of the "revolution" have been achieved.

These actions were most likely propagandistic and were aimed primarily at the "domestic consumer" in Western countries, because together with already created picture in the media, it produced the necessary information background for possible follow-up actions of the West against Sudan.

Thus, despite the fact that the people of Sudan consider the resignation of Omar al-Bashir to be their victory, and the transfer of power was bloodless, the intervention of the United States, Great Britain and allied states is obvious. It is likely that the situation created in the African Republic is only the first stage of a large-scale plan of the West to strengthen its influence in Sudan, which, by virtue of its location, is the key to the entire region.

FNA investigations department obtained documentation directly confirming that Western countries were behind the mass protests in Sudan followed by Omar al-Bashir’s resignation. At the moment we are preparing for publication the second part of our investigation which will contain irrefutable evidence of bribing the protesters and coordinating the demonstrators through the British embassy in Khartoum.
