Sudan: South Darfur Residents Refuse to Pay for Document Issuance

Kass — Residents of Kass locality, South Darfur, are refusing to pay for the issuance of their national number documents, claiming citizens in other regions get them for free.

A local leader told Radio Dabanga on Wednesday they handed over a memorandum to the authorities "emphasizing their outright rejection to pay any amount" for their national number (or value added tax registration number).

South Darfur authorities are reportedly asking citizens to pay 30 Sudanese pounds to print the document.

However, according to the leader, residents of Khartoum, Dongola and Shendi, receive them free of charge.
