Sudan mulls conditional amnesty for rebels: media


17:32, March 18, 2013

KHARTOUM, March 18 (Xinhua) -- The Sudanese parliament has disclosed intensive government consultations over a general conditional amnesty for the rebels, Khartoum's Al-Intibaha daily reported Monday.

The paper quoted Speaker of the Sudanese National Assembly ( parliament) Ahmed Ibrahim Al-Tahir as saying that there have been intensive consultations with Sudanese president, defense minister, chief of intelligence and security service to issue a general conditional amnesty for the armed rebels.

Al-Tahir further indicated that any rebel who voluntarily put down arms would find good treatment and warm welcome.

The latest development came just a few days after Sudan and South Sudan reached a deal on the implementation of the signed agreements on outstanding issues between them.

The Sudanese government is fighting a number of armed groups in Darfur, Blue Nile and South Kordofan states where these movements refuse to negotiate with the government.

The African Union Peace and Security Council (AUPSC) has recently urged Darfur armed movements to negotiate with the Sudanese government, while the Arab League renewed its call for the movements to join the Doha negotiation forum.
