The Sentry Lauds Action, Urges U.S to Add Asset Freeze to Visa Ban, as State Department Cites Involvement of Salah Gosh in "Gross Human Rights Violations," Credible Information on Involvement in Torture
August 14, 2019 (Washington D.C.) -- Today, the United States designated Salah Abdalla Mohamed Mohamed Salih, known as Salah Gosh, the former director general of Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Services due to his involvement in gross violations of human rights. Specifically, the Department has credible information that Salah Gosh was involved in torture during his tenure as head of NISS.
John Prendergast, Co-Founder of The Sentry, said: "Finally, after years of sowing terror and chaos in war-torn parts of Sudan, Salah Gosh has finally experienced the first of what hopefully will be many consequences for his misdeeds. The U.S. government should build on this action and impose an asset freeze on Gosh and any of his commercial collaborators found to be complicit in his human rights and financial crimes. Such actions will provide a message to all the peace spoilers that business as usual in Sudan -- which has been responsible for war and mass corruption -- is no longer acceptable."
Experts from the Sentry are available for comment.
ABOUT THE SENTRY
The Sentry is an investigative and policy team that follows the dirty money connected to African war criminals and transnational war profiteers and seeks to shut those benefiting from violence out of the international financial system.
