January 22, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – Karm-Allah Abbas Al-Sheikh, Governor of Gedaref state threatened to sue the federal ministry of finance before the international justice over non-payment of financial appropriations.

In such case, the governor can contest the ministerial delay before the constitutional court, in accordance with the Sudanese constitution however he alluded to the international justice to express his angry from the finance ministry.

The governor accused the federal ministry of restricting the payment of the money allotted to his state while it pays other states at time stressing officials in Khartoum are favoring some other states and feeding their financial accounts without any complexity or delay.

The governor who is the leader of the ruling National Congress Party at the state level was speaking Saturday at the celebration of the Martyr Day in Gedaref warned that he will resort to the Council of States, Upper house of the parliament, to complain over a 18 month delay of payment.

"I will not go (to Khartoum) for begging anyone but however I will work to restore the rights of the state, and if necessary I will go to the International Tribunal," he further said.

Al-Sheikh said he briefed President Omer al-Bashir and his two deputies about the practices of the Federal Ministry of Finance and reluctance to feed the state’s money.

He slammed the current and former ministers of finance and denounced the lack of justice in the money distribution saying they do it according to their whims.

He said many projects have been implemented thanks to the self-efforts and generous donations by the state citizens.

Gedaref governor is not the first Sudanese official to complain from the very bureaucratic and tyrannical practices implemented by the ministry of finance which is still works with the mentality and principles of a centralized state while the country has adopted a federal system since long years ago.
