Al-Tayyar (or Al Tayar) is a privately owned daily Sudanese Arabic newspaper based in Khartoum.

Established: 2009

Circulation: 1,000-10,000 (NPC Dec. 2012)

Editor in Chief: Osman Mirghani

Background

On 21 February 2012 Al-Tayyar became the third newspaper to be shutdown in Sudan since the beginning the year.

Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) had already suspended Ra’y al-Sha’b and Alwan newspapers in January 2012 after they published information on the assassination of Darfur rebel leader Khalil Ibrahim in late December 2011.

Al Tayar was established in 2009 by Osman Mirghani, a journalist who began his career in Alwan and rose to fame as a columnist in Al Ray Al Aam. Mirghani is known as a reform-minded critic of the government’s performance who shares the NCP’s Islamic orientation. Al Tayar follows the inside story of NCP regional branches, reporting on factional disputes and incessant squabbles involving individual strongmen. He also highlights alleged corruption and embezzlement of state funds. Reporting allegation fraud and corruption, however, has become something of a commodity in Sudan’s press, with columnists and reporters being provided with confidential documents to expose politicans’ opponents. The paper has made a name for itself in this area. Osman Mirghani is editor-in-chief of Al Tayar and owns the majority of its shares.
