Note: This report was published by the Enough Project.

 

The Obama and Trump administrations, in temporarily and then permanently lifting comprehensive sanctions on Sudan, cited improvements in the Sudanese government’s counterterrorism and its broader humanitarian and human rights record. But a closer look reveals these claims to be very problematic, with major implications for the next stage of dialogue and policy between the United States and Sudan.

Senators Corker and Coons to Treasury Secretary Mnuchin: Deploy Financial Tools to End Corrupt Behavior of South Sudanese Leaders

 

Note: This press release was originally published on enoughproject.org.

 

In a letter to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-TN) and Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) detail the necessary steps the Treasury Department should take on South Sudan to “cut off the free flow of resources to the political and military elites, their families and associates.”

The Enough Project applauds Senators Corker and Coons for their focus on the use of financial tools to address the nexus of conflict and corruption in South Sudan, and for their leadership and commitment to a peaceful resolution to the conflict in the country.

Note: This op-ed originally appeared in Washington Post and was written by Tom Catena, the only doctor permanently based in Sudan’s Nuba Mountains; he is the laureate of the 2017 Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity.

 

On most days, I don’t feel as though the daily debates or the deadlines set in Washington affect me much. Who’s up and who’s down, and who tweeted what at whom, just aren’t on my radar. But July 12 — the day by which the United States must decide whether to lift sanctions against the government of Sudan — is a day that I’ll be watching closely because it will affect me and the people I serve.
