The former director of the Sudan Liberation Movement office in Israel said that this promise represents a first step on the way to achieving justice for the victims of the Rapid Support Forces led by (Hemedti).
The former director of the office of the Sudan Liberation Movement – Abdel Wahed Muhammad Nur faction, in Israel, confirmed that they had received news regarding the Israeli attorney general’s intent to arrest RSF commander, Muhammad Hamdan Dagalo, known as (Hemedti), if he ever visits Tel Aviv.
The Sudanese newspaper, Al-Jarida, issued today, quoted the former director, Abdel Moneim Mandela, as having confirmed the attorney general’s intent on having Hemedti arrested.
“Mandela” revealed that a written response had been received to a previous request submitted by Sudanese people residing in Israel to the Israeli government to arrest Hemedti, upon his arrival in Tel Aviv.
The former SLM director told Al-Jarida that the response of the Office of the Attorney General of the Government of Israel was clear and frank in this regard.
“The attorney general of the Israeli government confirmed that they will take all necessary measures mentioned in the request against (Hemedti) upon his arrival in Israel, in accordance with Israeli law and international laws signed by the State of Israel,” he said.
“The prosecutor’s response represents a strong blow to (Hemedti)’s ambitions to establish a relationship between the Rapid Support Militia and the State of Israel and to restrict it at the international level,” Mandela added.
The Sudan Liberation Movement led by Abdel Wahed Muhammad Nour is the first Sudanese political party to have had an office in Tel Aviv.
Hundreds of Sudanese refugees live in Israel, most of whom come from the troubled Darfur region in the west of the country.
While the Rapid Support Forces, led by Hemedti, are seeking to build a strategic relationship with the State of Israel, and the past period has witnessed mutual visits between the two parties, they have taken on the nature of security and military coordination.
