Khartoum — A Sudanese investigation commission has recognised the involvement of military and senior officials in trafficking arms.
The commission at the Sudanese Ministry which investigates reports of smuggling and arms trafficking in Sudan has found that up to 200 people have committed these crimes, including military and senior officials. The head of the commission, Nazir Hamid El Faki, has revealed that there are ten reports, in addition to fifteen others, used in the investigation.
