Sudan: 29 intelligence agents to die by hanging for killing teacher

A Sudanese court sentenced 29 members of the national intelligence service to death by hanging yesterday over the killing of a teacher in detention in February during protests that led to the overthrow of former president Omar al-Bashir.

The group that spearheaded the protests welcomed the ruling, the first to deliver sentences over crackdowns on demonstrations in the months before and after Bashir was toppled in April.

Prosecuting members of the intelligence services is seen as a test of how far Sudan’s transitional government will go to erase Bashir’s legacy and challenge the security apparatus.

“This day is a victory for justice, a victory for all Sudanese and a victory for the revolution,” teacher Ahmed al-Khair’s brother Saad told reporters after the verdict.

Thirteen defendants were sentenced to prison terms and a further four were acquitted in the ruling, which could face several stages of appeal.

The judge listed 27 agents from Kassala, capital of eastern Kassala state, who received death sentences. Another two agents from Khashm al-Qirba, the town in Kassala state where teacher Khair was killed, were also sentenced to death, a lawyer said.

Khair’s death became a rallying point during 16 weeks of protests against Bashir’s rule.

His family said security officials initially claimed he had died of poisoning, though days later a state investigation found he had died of injuries from beating.

Hundreds of people rallied outside the court in Omdurman where the verdict was delivered yesterday, some waving national flags or holding pictures of Khair.  They broke into celebration after the ruling.

The Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA), which spearheaded protests against Bashir, said the trial restored confidence in the judiciary.  “With this ruling, the revolution will have paid off its debt to the martyrs a first time, to be followed as many times as the number of martyrs,” it said.

This should serve as a lesson to any person(s) thinking that they can get away with murder and other heinous crimes simply because they are working for a state.
This 21st century will be very unforgiving to those types of people. They will pay with their own lives. Guaranteed.

Who would have thought that SUDAN of all places would be a country where intelligence agents are sentenced to death by hanging for their actions on behalf of those in power?

So, next time anyone tells you to kill anyone on behalf of the state, simply refuse or resign, because 21st century will find you and hang you for it.

As it happened in Sudan (a historically totalitarian country), it can happen ANYWHERE.

Be wise, and keep your hands clean of blood, NO MATTER WHAT...

... or be prepared to hang for it, because murder has no statute of limitation.
