Sudan Revokes Al-Jazeera Live TV Unit License

Sudanese Government has revoked the license of Al-Jazeera Mubasher which is part of the Qatar-based network.

According to the Channel on Sunday, the government reportedly accused it for “unprofessional” Television coverage of anti-coup protests.

“The Sudanese authorities announced that they have revoked the accreditation of Al-Jazeera Mubasher and barred its team from working in Sudan,” the channel tweeted.

Top Military Leader General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan had in October 25th launched a coup which has, since, then brought the country into political turmoil.

The coup triggered mass protests by pro-democracy movements demanding civilian rule that has met with a deadly crackdown by the junta.

The Channel said, in November, days after the interview, that its Khartoum Bureau Chief Al-Musalami al-Kabbashi was arrested at his home.

Kabbashi was released three days later with no official charges against him.

The Editor-in-Chief of the armed forces newspaper, Ibahim al-Hory later accused Kabbashi of publishing “false” information and of airing “old video footage that instigated strife” in the country.

Prime Minister Abdulla Hamdok was placed under house arrest but later reinstated in a deal with the military.
