The Sentry Urges Financial Support to Sustain Reforms in Sudan

 

June 24, 2020 (Washington D.C.) – The Sudan Partnership Conference in Berlin will meet by teleconference tomorrow, June 25th, to discuss possible international financing for Sudan in the hope of supporting the civilian-led transitional government (CLTG). The Sudanese economy currently faces serious challenges after decades of corruption and economic mismanagement.

Dr. Suliman Baldo, Senior Advisor to The Sentry, said: “The progress to date of the Sudan Transitional Government in introducing far-reaching economic reforms provides a firm rationale for Sudan’s international partners to deliver the financial support the government urgently needs to sustain these reforms. A meaningful infusion of donor support would help safeguard Sudan’s transition to democracy and civilian rule from all the many threats risking to derail it.”

ABOUT THE SENTRY

The Sentry is an investigative and policy team that follows the dirty money connected to African war criminals and transnational war profiteers and seeks to shut those benefiting from violence out of the international financial system. By disrupting the cost-benefit calculations of those who hijack governments for self-enrichment in East and Central Africa, the deadliest war zone globally since World War II, we seek to counter the main drivers of conflict and create new leverage for peace, human rights, and good governance. The Sentry is composed of financial investigators, international human rights lawyers, and regional experts, as well as former law enforcement agents, intelligence officers, policymakers, investigative journalists, and banking professionals. Co-founded by George Clooney and John Prendergast, The Sentry is a flagship initiative and strategic partner of the Clooney Foundation for Justice.
