Nine administrative boards of directors of corporations were also dissolved, and a number of directors of other institutions dismissed.
The Anti-Corruption Committee (The Empowerment Elimination, Anti-Corruption, and Funds Recovery Committee) has issued a decision to form sub-committees in all states to be chaired by the governor of each state.
At a press conference on Thursday, spokesman Salah Manaa said that the committee issued a decision to seize assets of El Maaraj Peace and Development Organisation and assets of the El Nour Islamic Complex including 28 plots of land in the Kafouri district in Khartoum North, and 12 vehicles.
Manaa explained that the assets will be transferred to the Ministry of Finance.
Committee member Wajdi Saleh media announced that El Sudani and El Rai El Aam newspapers, and Ashorooq and Teiba TV satellite channels have been suspended based on the committee’s findings that these entities “received suspicious funds from the former regime”.
Saleh pointed out that the committee decided to appoint a commissioner to manage media institutions and review the financial aspects. He also explained that the committee will make sure that the rights of the employees will be respected and the salaries of employees in these institutions will be paid from the accounts of the entities. “We have no quarrel with the employees. It is the entities we are after,” he concluded.
On January 13, Radio Dabanga reported that the Anti-Corruption Committee suspended Ashorooq and Teiba
