Sudan: "Corrupt" Khartoum Governor Staff Arrested

Khartoum — The Sudanese security service arrested eight of the Khartoum State Governor's Office staff on Wednesday.

The staff members are arrested against the backdrop of accusations of exploiting power benefits to get land under fake names, and selling them for 420 million Sudanese pounds ($73,253,200), and other amounts, for their own advantage.

A joint security committee of the economic security, the police, and the Ministry of Justice is expected to investigate the issue, after searching the procedures of immunity Governor Abdel Rahman El Khidir is enjoying.
