TIME IS UP! Sudan’s Bashir Bans Protests, Regulates Foreign Currency Trade In Latest Emergency Measures

Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir has banned unlicensed public gatherings in a move aimed at curtailing protests.

In a statement issued by the presidential palace, Bashir also announced a ban on trading or hoarding subsidised fuel products, as well as new regulations on trading and transporting foreign currency and gold.

This comes days after the Sudanese strongman had announced a yearlong state of emergency, dissolved the federal government and sacked all state governors. This failed to end protests.
