Author : | Published: Thursday, April 7, 2016

A Sudanese court has ruled that 23 South Sudanese convicted of charges relating to terrorism and undermining the constitutional order will be executed.

The charges include intimidation, looting and destruction of the government institutions.

The defendants are said to have been members of the rebel Justice and Equality Movement under the leadership of Bakheit Abdualkarim Dabju.

In 2013, Sudanese President Omar AL Bashir issued a presidential amnesty to all war prisoners after the signing of the Doha agreement.

But according to the court judge, this presidential amnesty does not include South Sudanese people because they are not part of the Doha peace agreement.

According to the Sudanese newspapers, the South Sudanese embassy in Khartoum has started talking with the Sudanese government on the matter.
