During a 5-day visit to Cairo, Sudanese Attorney General Mubarak Othman discussed, with his Egyptian counterpart Hamada El-Sawy, the extradition of a number of former Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir’s agents who sought refuge in Egypt, to the authorities in Khartoum.

In the details, well-informed sources in the Sudanese Prosecution stated that the most important figures demanded by Khartoum is the former Sudanese intelligence director Salah Abdullah, known as “Gosh”, and other members of the isolated regime who fled to Egypt after the fall of Al-Bashir in April 2019, according to What was reported by Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper.

Serious negotiations to extradite the wanted persons

The information also reported that serious discussions took place between the Sudanese Attorney General and his Egyptian counterpart, in which Cairo expressed its full readiness, in a great development, to discuss cooperation in handing over wanted persons to the Sudanese authorities, as well as discussing arrangements on how and ways to follow.

Meanwhile, Othman expressed his optimism that cooperation with the Egyptian Public Prosecution would achieve great progress in the matter of handing over wanted persons to justice in Sudan, despite Cairo’s lack of confirmation of this.

Big change and understandings

It is worth noting that the Egyptian authorities had previously refused a request by the former Sudanese Attorney General, Taj Al-Sir Al-Haber, to extradite Gosh, then Khartoum initiated procedures for his extradition through Interpol in criminal reports related to terrorism, financial corruption and torture of political detainees during the outbreak of popular protests in Sudan in 2018.
