Sudan Military Directed To Restore Internet Services In The Country

A court in Sudan has ruled that internet services cut during a military coup more than two weeks ago must be restored.

The case was brought by a group of lawyers and comes as pro-democracy groups are organising further demonstrations against the military.

Online access has been largely blocked and phone lines have also been  disrupted in what many believe is an attempt to prevent demonstrations

This has seen Sudan’s top general Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, who carried out the coup be blamed online media for fermenting sedition.

Mass pro-democracy protests are currently ongoing in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, and other main cities.

This however is as Nureldin Satti, Sudan’s ambassador to the United States, says the miltary coup in Sudan is over.

It cannot continue with the mobilization that we have seen and that we are going to see in the next days and weeks.

Sudan’s top generals and former civilian leaders have been locked in tense negotiations for a way out of the crisis sparked by the military takeover on October 25th.

This was when al-Burhan dissolved the country’s transitional government and detained other government officials and political leaders in a coup.
