Yesterday, the head of Sudan’s Transitional Sovereign Council, Lt Gen Abdelfattah El Burhan, announced the decision to withdraw Sudanese citizenship from 3,548 naturalised residents, granted to them under the regime of former ruler Omar Al Bashir.

The decision to withdraw the Sudanese nationality was issued following recommendations by a specialised technical committee that advised to review Sudanese citizenship on the basis of naturalisation as granted by members of the Al Bashir regime between 1989-2019.

He added that a committee was still reviewing other naturalisations approved by the Al Bashir regime.
