Sudan’s military leader, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan has ended a state of emergency which was imposed, after seizing power following a military coup on 25 October 2021.

This was disclosed on Sunday by the ruling sovereign council, who said the army chief general issued the decree to promote a conducive atmosphere that would enable “a fruitful and meaningful dialogue that achieves stability during the transitional period.”

The army-led government also disclosed that it will be releasing all detainees arrested during the state of emergency. It is however, unclear how many of the detainees who were arrested en masse, will be set free.

The decision was taken after the Sudanese Security and Defense Council recommended lifting the law to enhance dialogue between the military and the pro-democracy movement, many of which have lost their lives in demonstrations against the military government.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, two anti-coup protesters were killed when security personnel opened fire on them during a violent crackdown in the capital Khartoum.

United Nations envoy to Sudan Volker Perthes, took to Twitter to condemn the act, saying it was time for violence to end.

“I am appalled by the violent death of two young protesters in Khartoum yesterday. One again: it is time for the violence to stop, time to end the state of emergency, time for a peaceful way out of the current crisis in Sudan,” he tweeted.
