Far-right group slams government over four freedom deal with South Sudan

March 14, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – The far-right Just Peace Forum (JPF) of Sudan has launched severe criticism against the government for signing an agreement on four freedoms with neighbouring South Sudan, saying the move poses a threat to national security.

Sudan and South Sudan inked on Tuesday a framework agreement allowing citizens of both states to enjoy “freedom of residence, freedom of movement, freedom to undertake economic activity and freedom to acquire and dispose property".

The deal allayed concerns over Sudan’s decision to strip its former southern citizens of their nationality following their massive vote for the independence of their region, which was declared in July last year. Millions of southerners began an exodus back home after Khartoum announced that as of 9 April this year, they will have to leave the country or regularise their stay as foreigners, a move that drew criticism from human rights groups locally and abroad.

Al-Tayyib Mustafa, the leader of the JPF and a close relative of Sudan’s President Omsr Al-Bashir, described the agreement signed in Addis Ababa as a “humiliating compromise”.

Speaking to reporters in the capital Khartoum on Wednesday, Mustafa revealed that his party intends to oppose the deal through all possible means, including the launch of a popular campaign and use of religious leaders.

The ultra-conservative figure called on his nephew and president Omer Al-Bashir to scrap the deal, similar to what he did with the Addis Ababa framework agreement signed in mid July between his close aide, Nafie Ali Nafie, and rebels of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement North (SPLM-N) who are fighting the government in South Kordofan and Blue Nile State.

Bashir’s disavowal of Addis Ababa agreement with the rebels was a testament to the political clout of the JPF and its controversial leader.

The JPF had campaigned intensively through its daily mouthpiece, Al-Intibaha, for the secession of South Sudan and expulsion of southern citizens. Most recently, the party’s leaders and writers have been calling on the government to invade Juba, the capital of South Sudan, in retaliation for the south’s alleged support to Sudanese rebels.

Mustafa said that the new Addis Ababa deal was a dangerous development and a threat to Sudanese national security. He further said that the government must either scrap the deal or exit power to allow the people to select the leaders who can “defend their sacred principles”.

According to the JPF leader, the government had signed the agreement under intensive US pressure after a group of congressmen introduced a law that would impose new sanctions on Khartoum.

Mustafa said there was pressure from the US and UK on Sudan to give southerners their citizenship back and allow them the four freedoms. He added that the presence of southerners in Sudan threatens the social and political security of the north.

Similarly, the JPF senior member and editor-in-chief of Al-Intibaha, Al-Sadiq al-Rizigi, said that “an American stench can be smelled in the agreement”. He further said that the deal “was not worth the value of ink with which it is written and will not success because it compromises our rights”.

Ishaq Fadul Allah, another JPF stalwart and an op-ed writer at Al-Intibaha, berated Sudan’s negotiators who signed the deal, saying they should be punished by being sent to the battlefronts in South Kordofan and Blue Nile.

    Knock, knock, no Jalaby nor Ali here because reality is appearing and the NCP is starting to see some sense. But, we will trade with honesty and caustiousely because too many agreements with Sudan do not mean anythin unti it is done. Shooting down the jetfighter and the drone were just the beginning of letting sudan know we are not kidding.

        It doesn’t matter how many deals were signed, all that matter is the corporation of the people in the South, are the people going to honor the deal? That’s all that matter.

        In history, how many Addis Ababa deals signed and never implemented? Southerners are very much aware now, this is what we all say; an old saying out west “fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me”

    What is your opinion about the so called Far right group who have criticized the new deal. Southerners will never believe any peace signed by Khartoum because they’re liars.

      May i tell you my opinion mr. Michael Angelo

      this agreement is bullshit...... why allowing southerners to stay in sudan while they voted for independence.....if we allow free movement, what was the point of seperation?????

      bashir and his friends owe us a clear explanation about this agreement...... we completely oppose this agreement, 700,000 southerners inside our territories is a threat to us

        Mr. Northern Sudanese,

        Be serious, north Sudan populations is 37 millions. Explain how 700.000 thousand southerns can threat security of this large population?. Why everyone in the north Sudan are so paranoid. You people need to get a live, or north Sudan will be a very lonely village in the world. Washington will make sure Khartoum will remain a terrorist state... that’s a fact!.

        Well, Southerners are allowed to Travel and should have more freedom in the North because they are Africans and you are not. Bashir now realizes that.

      2 million Northern Sudanese living in South Sudan. Are you serious, this number constitutes 25% of entire population of South Sudan, even thief Pagan himself didn’t claim that. For this agreement I can assure u it is widely rejected by our people. Our delegates are traitors. USA & UK intimidated them to sign .Bashir himself will not dare to sign the fianl agreement.

    What is the point of seperation if we are siging this deal?
    There wasnt much benifit for Sudan in seperation, and this agreements just killed the benifits that came with it. I think the goverment owes us an explanation.
    Such an agreement must come second to the more important issues like oil, abeyi and border democtation. For starter we want all janobeen out in 3 weeks. Then we see wats wat !

          I am curious to know from you exactly why those southerners still want to be there when they are persecuted, insulted employment rejected for them? The agreement was to let you fellows allow the ss to repatriate home and not be held hostage. these guys are hostages n must be allowed to leave and not be used as proxies 2 fight a war they do not choose.

    To thugs of Intibaha;
    Let me mention the crimes committed by this group;
    1-Al-Tayyib Mustafa raped a boy some years back.
    2-He sent his son to hell through war in the south;
    3-He made false accusations on southerners.
    4-He divided the country into two countries(i.e good).

      Good question indeed, Egyptian are different they don’t hate us or sponsor and finance rebels to destroy our country, or call upon the world to tighten thier embargo on us. We don’t hate you but we hate what you are doing to us. Stop your support to rebels, go into constructive negotiation with our Govt. to solve all disputes peacefully then we can agree on other issues.

    All these four agreements will have to follow some cross boarder procedures Such as permit stating how long one is taking on the other country, reason of entering, and land acquisition procedure for instance, etc.
    I mean there is still possibility of regulating movement, land, etc.
