Sudan party head to be tried in North Kordofan
The trial of the chairman of the Sudanese Congress Party, Ibrahim El Sheikh, will take place in El Obeid, capital of North Kordofan.
Sati El Haj, head of the defence team told Radio Dabanga that the Sudanese Chief of Justice ordered the transfer of the case to El Obeid on Tuesday, as requested by the defence.
He said that the defence lawyers will travel from El Fula in West Kordofan, where El Sheikh is currently being held, to El Obeid, to “discuss the first sessions of the trial”.
