Sudan Sacks its Spy Chief

Human rights group have accused Gosh of play­ing a sig­nif­i­cant role in abuses that took place in the west­ern region of Dar­fur. Human Rights Watch had called for the ICC to inves­ti­gate Gosh’s role in the government’s attempt to quash rebels in Dar­fur. Pres­i­dent Bashir issued a repub­li­can decree appoint­ing Gosh as Pres­i­den­tial Adviser.

The cur­rent deputy intel­li­gence chief and direc­tor of national secu­rity, Mohammed Atta al-Moula will replace Gosh as the new Chief of Intel­li­gence.

The gov­ern­ment did not give any rea­son for mov­ing the influ­en­tial Gosh from his posi­tion but there are spec­u­la­tions that by bring­ing him closer to the pres­i­dency and under the watch­ful eye of Pres­i­dent Bashir, Gosh’s activ­i­ties will be much closely observed and scru­ti­nised
