Monday, the United States has imposed sanctions on Sudan’s Central Reserve police (CRP) on the ground of human rights abuses.
The Treasury Department accused the CRP of being “at the forefront” of the crackdown on protests against military rule in the northeast African nation.
In a statement by Treasury undersecretary Brian Nelson, he said; “Since the October 25 military takeover, Sudan’s Central Reserve Police has used excessive force and violence intended to silence civilian activists and protesters,”
“We condemn Sudan’s security services for killing, harassing, and intimidating Sudanese citizens,” Nelson said. “These actions are exacerbating the crisis in Sudan.”
