Al-Burhan freezes the bank accounts of the rapid support and relieves the governor of the Central Bank

The commander of the Sudanese army, Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, issued a decision to freeze the bank accounts of the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces and its subsidiaries in all banks in Sudan and their branches abroad.

This came in a statement by Al-Burhan’s office, which added that the decision stipulated “preventing the disbursement of any entitlements or budgets allocated for it.” Al-Burhan directed the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning and the Bank of Sudan to implement the decision.

Al-Burhan’s office also stated that it had relieved the governor of the Central Bank, Hussein Yahya Janqul, and appointed Burai al-Siddiq Ahmed (one of Janqul’s deputies) as the new governor of the bank.

Al-Burhan also issued a decision to refer a number of officers to retirement, and they are Major General Staff Othman Muhammad Hamid Muhammad, Major General Hassan Mahjoub Al-Fadil Abdel Hamid, Brigadier General Absher Jibril Balayel, and Brigadier General Omar Hamdan Ahmed Hammad.

Sudan has been witnessing unrest since the outbreak of an armed conflict between the army and the Rapid Support Forces in mid-April.
