Open in new windowThe President of the Republic Omer Albashir has issued a Republican Decree accepting the resignation of the Minister of Information, Abdalla Massar, and relieving the State Minister at the Ministry of Information, Sana Hamad.
A dispute had erupted following a decision by Mr. Massar to suspend the director of the official news agency (SUNA) Awad Jadain while he undergoes investigation for alleged financial and administrative irregularities. On Friday President Albashir reversed Massar’s orders regarding Jadain and halted the work of an investigation committee into SUNA formed by the outgoing minister.
The council of ministers secretariat issued a statement today Tuesday stressing that Massar had no legal authority over SUNA’s director as the latter is appointed by the presidency. Therefore only the president can take any action regarding Jadain.
The state minister of information Sana Hamad put a freeze on Massar’s decision while he was travelling abroad. This prompted Massar to strip her from her role as supervisor over SUNA.
