Sudanese authorities have arrested several top members of the former ruling party of ousted President Omar al-Bashir, in a move that could bolster military rulers who are under mounting pressure by protesters to hand power to civilians.

In another part of a widening crackdown designed to remove remnants of Bashir’s rule, the transitional military council (TMC) said it will retire all eight of the officers ranked lieutenant general in the National Intelligence and Security Service.

Opposition groups had demanded that the security agencies be restructured.

Sudan’s public prosecutor has begun investigating Bashir on charges of money laundering and possession of large sums of foreign currency without legal grounds, a judicial source said earlier on Saturday.

​Suitcases loaded with cash

The source said military intelligence officers who searched Bashir’s home found suitcases loaded with more than $351,000 and 6 million euros, as well as 5 million Sudanese pounds.

“The chief public prosecutor … ordered the (former) president detained and quickly questioned in preparation to put him on trial,” the judicial source told Reuters.

“The public prosecution will question the former president in Kobar prison,” the source said. Bashir has not been questioned yet, the source added. Two of his brothers were also detained on allegations of corruption, the source said.

Relatives could not immediately be reached Saturday for comment about the investigation.

Separately, a source in Bashir’s National Congress Party said authorities arrested the acting party head Ahmed Haroun, former first vice president Ali Osman Taha, former Bashir aide Awad al-Jaz, the secretary general of the Islamic movement Al-Zubair Ahmed Hassan and former parliament speaker Ahmed Ibrahim al-Taher.

The source also said parliament speaker Ibrahim Ahmed Omar and presidential aide Nafie Ali Nafie were under house arrest.

High-security prison

Bashir, who is also being sought by the International Criminal Court (ICC) over allegations of genocide in Sudan’s western Darfur region, was ousted April 11 by the military following months of protests against his rule and had been held at a presidential residence.

His family said this week that the former president had been moved to the high-security Kobar prison in Khartoum.

Hassan Bashir, a professor of political science at the University of Neelain, said the measures against Bashir are intended as a message to other figures associated with his rule that they are not above the law.

“The trial is a step that the military council wants to take to satisfy the protesters by presenting al-Bashir for trial,” he said.

Bashir survived several armed rebellions, economic crises, and attempts by the West to turn him into a pariah during his 30-year rule before he was toppled in a military coup.

At a sit-in outside Sudan’s Ministry of Defense that began on April 6, protesters, who sleep on the pavement, stood besides posters of Bashir that called on the ICC to put him on trial.

By James Bovard*

Numerous Indiana elementary school teachers were shot in January as part of a “safe schools” training program. According to the Indiana State Teachers Association, sheriff deputies ordered teachers “into a room four at a time, told them to crouch down and then shot them execution-style with pellets in rapid succession,” leaving several of them bloodied and many of them screaming in terror. The teachers union is “is lobbying lawmakers to add language prohibiting teachers from being shot with any sort of ammunition” during school safety drills, according to the Indianapolis Star.

The Indiana program was part of the school lockdown drills occurring
across the nation spurred in part by a Colorado massacre that occurred
twenty years ago on April 20. Twelve students and one teacher died in a
shooting spree by two students at Columbine High School. The Columbine
carnage helped inspire subsequent school shootings, especially a
Newtown, Connecticut attack in 2012.

While the media is vividly reminding Americans of the Colorado
killings, few people remember how the Clinton administration rushed to
exploit the killings. Attorney General Janet Reno praised the local
police response as “extraordinary” and “a textbook” example of “how to
do it the right way.” President Bill Clinton declared that “we look with
admiration at the… the police officers who rushed to the scene to
save lives.” Clinton invoked the Columbine killings almost every day
from April 20 through mid-June 1999, when the House of Representatives
narrowly defeated Clinton-championed gun control legislation.

In reality, “No efforts were made to stop the assault,” concluded
William Erickson, a former Colorado Supreme Court justice who headed a
commission that issued a damning 2001 report on the Columbine killings.
Instead, hundreds of police waited outside until long after the two
perpetrators had committed suicide.

Appalling police failures turned a multiple homicide into a historic
massacre. A SWAT team had entered the building early on but Jefferson
County Sheriff John Stone ordered it to withdraw. Police spokesmen said
most of the SWAT teams were not sent in “for fear that they might set
off a new gunfight,” the New York Times reported. SWAT teams
did not enter the room where the killers lay until hours after the
shooting stopped. A badly wounded school teacher, Dave Sanders, bled to
death because the SWAT team took four hours to reach the room he was in –
even though students placed a large sign announcing “1 Bleeding to
Death” in the window.

Jefferson County Sheriff John Stone later explained: “We had initial
people there right away, but we couldn’t get in. We were way outgunned.”
However, SWAT team members had flak jackets and submachine guns – far
better protection and weaponry than the unreliable TEC-9 handgun,
semiautomatic rifle, and shotguns that the killers touted.

Fears for “officer safety” paralyzed the police response. Steve
Davis, spokesman for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department, said,
“We had no idea who was a victim and who was a suspect. And a dead
police officer would not be able to help anyone.” Evan Todd, a Columbine
student who was wounded in the initial attack, escaped outside and then
explained to a dozen policemen exactly what was happening inside; he
was told “to calm down and take my frustrations elsewhere.” After the
2001 report was released, Randy Brown, the father of a Columbine
student, scoffed in the Rocky Mountain News: “When children are
being murdered… it is important that you establish a perimeter. Do
not intervene in the shooting. Officer safety is a priority”?

Unfortunately, law enforcement learned too little from Littleton. At
the Parkland school in Florida last year, eight sheriff’s deputies
cowered outside while the shooting rampage left 17 dead. A local cop who
arrived during the shooting was urged not to enter the building: “Hey,
be careful. The guy’s got a rifle,” a deputy told him. After the
killings, the local sheriff’s department put out a deluge of false
claims that were debunked by later revelations. Nikolas Cruz should have
been arrested numerous times because of violence and threats at school
and elsewhere but school authorities may have avoided charging him
because of an Obama administration school grant program that sought to
curb the “school-to-prison” pipeline for minority students. The FBI also
dropped the ball despite receiving at least two explicit calls warning
about Cruz.

Unfortunately, school safety policies have long been dominated by
institutional hysteria fanned by politicians, bureaucrats, and much of
the media. The federal Education Department reported last year that
“nearly 240 schools … reported at least 1 incident involving a
school-related shooting” in the 2015-16 school year. National Public
Radio investigated and found that the feds had exaggerated school
shootings by twenty-fold; NPR could confirm only 11 incidents. Cleveland
was credited with 37 shooting incidents when in reality it was simply a
report of 37 schools noting “possession of a knife or a firearm.” One
school system was listed as a shooting locale for an incident involving a
pair of scissors. But fanning hysteria over school hysteria is mother’s
milk for politicians who want to confiscate private firearms.

The #NeverAgain movement that arose after last year’s Parkland
shootings ignores how government officials cannot be trusted to behave
honestly or responsibly to save student lives. New gun control laws will
do nothing to boost either the competence or courage of the police when
every second counts. Unfortunately, there is also no cure for the
political exploitation of such tragedies.
