President Omar Hassan al-Bashir of Sudan
This evening a number of us received an email from Ken Isaacs of Samaritans Purse this evening containing what appears to be a press statement from the Executive Office of the President Trump indicating that the decision on possible permanently lifting the 20 year sanctions against the Sudan regime of President Omar Hassan al-Bashir may have been deferred from July 11, 2017 to October 31, 2017.
Isaacs sent an email "confirming that this press release came from the White House regarding the Presiden'ts executive order on the sanctions on Sudan."
On June 30, 2017, the House Foreign Affairs Committee sent a bi-partisan letter to President Trump recommending that he defer any decision on the Sudan sanctions for at least a year to permit the appoinment of a new Special Envoy to Sudan and South Sudan and assembly a team to conduct investigations into the situation and Sudan alleged compliance with the five tracks enumerated in the Executive Order No. Executive Order No. 13761.
In our New English Review/Iconoclast article, Secret Plan of the Bashir Regime Reinforces Rejecting Lifting Sudan Sanctions, we revealed key revelations contained in the “Top Secret” minutes of The Security Intelligence and Political Committee of Crisis Management held in the Office of the Director of the Sudan National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) on June 18, 2017. The secret document had been obtained by a reliable informed source and was translated.
Attending the Khartoum meeting were the power elite of the reigning National Congress Party (NCP) regime: President Bashir, Vice President Backri Hassan Salih, Foreign Minister Ibrahim Gandur, Minister of Defense Awad bn Ouf, Hamid Momtaz Secretary of NCP political affairs, and State Minister in the Ministry of foreign affairs, General Mohamed Atta al Mola Director of NISS, General Ibrahim Mohamed al Hassan, Commander of Military Intelligence, Ibrahim Mhamud Vice President of NCP and Professor Ibrahim Ahmed Omer President of Parliament.
The minutes of this Crisis Management Committee revealed the broad sweep of plans for assassination of a major Sudan resistance commander in the Nuba Mountains and senior Officers supporting him. It also addressed sponsorship of international ISIS terrorist activities in the Sahel region of Africa, especially in Libya, and the global Muslim Brotherhood Organization. It elucidated web of deception in the Bashir regime’s influence campaign in Washington, DC to lift sanctions by the Trump Administration. The secret minutes suggest that the Sudan prevailed on Saudi Arab to ask former President Omaha to lift the Sudan sanctions.
These top secret minutes also reflect the Bashir regime’s position in the current dispute between Qatar and four Arab Countries: Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirate, Bahrain and Egypt. It reveals that relations with Iran secretly continue despite the public cutoff in 2015.
The revelations in this NISS document further the case of the letter signed by Members of the US House Foreign Affairs Committee sent to President Trump on June 30, 2017. The following are excerpts from a translation of the Sudan NISS Crisis Management Committee at the June 18, 2017 meeting. We have links to both the complete minutes in both the original Arabic and the English translation. Links to Arabic original and English translation.
Below is the text conveyed in Ken Isaacs' email that purports to have been issued by White Hourse:
