    6) Others, if and when proven they were directly participated in the coup, abet, attributed or supported its commission.
    Causes of the Criminal Petition:
    This criminal lawsuit Petition is filed against the Military Partners of the Sudanese Transitional Government established under the Constitutional Document of August 2019, plus some Armed Movements leaders, and some leaders of the Tracks of the Juba Agreement for Peace October 2020 who staged a sit-in at the Republican Palace/ Khartoum on October 16, 2021, demanding SAF Commander Al-Burhan to issue a statement to overthrow the existing government and dissolve the Constitutional Document of August 2019, that established the Transitional Government of the Republic of Sudan.
    To achieve their common intention /goal, the perpetrators committed a military coup and overthrown the existing Transitional Government, they committed criminal acts on October 25,2021 whereby they dissolved the existing Constitutional Regime in Sudan, whereas the leader of the military coup Lieutenant-General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan (CG) of the (SAF) had broadcasted a statement in the media announcing the military coup overthrowing the Transitional Government, seizing control of the government, dissolved the Constitutional Document, dissolved the Council of Ministers (the Executive Government),solved the Sovereignty Council, and seized all Sudan Government Apparatus by the perpetrators of the military coup forces.

    The alleged perpetrators of the coup kidnapped the Prime Minister of the Sudan Dr. Abdullah Adam Hamdok and took him hostage, they initially took him to an unknown destination, and later returned him back to his home after several days, now they put him under house arrest.

    The perpetrators of the coup kidnapped ministers in the Federal Government of Sudan, took them hostages to unknown destination, moreover they kidnapped some members of the Sovereignty Council (civilians), took them hostages to unknown destination. Furthermore, they kidnapped political parties leaders in Khartoum and other cities all over Sudan, they took them hostages to unknown destinations, and their fate is unknown,

    The perpetrators of the coup, in order to dissolve the existing Constitutional Regime and control over power, they closed the bridges in the federal capital Khartoum, they occupied the HQ of the National Radio and Television Corporation after they kidnapped its director and took him hostage, they cut communication networks, and disconnected internet service throughout Sudan since October 25, 2021,
    6. The perpetrators declared a state of emergency throughout the country, breached the public freedoms and infringed human rights, encroached the rule of law and imposed martial laws,
    7. The perpetrators dissolved the “Empowerment Removal Committee”, kidnapped its members and took them hostages, they took control of its headquarters and tampered its assets / documentations in a terrible violation of the most important mechanisms of the December 2018 Revolt,
    8. The perpetrators chased and arrested political activists and workers in human rights monitoring organizations, the arresting raids are still going on.
    9. The acts committed by the perpetrators in the above disclosure constitute a crime under Article 50 of the Sudan Criminal Act 1991 that reads: (Whoever commits any act with the intent of undermining the constitutional system of the country, or with the intent of endangering its independence or unity, shall be punished with death or imprisonment. life imprisonment or imprisonment for a lesser period, with the permissibility of confiscation of all his property).
    We find that the elements of this crime are available against the perpetrators beyond the reasonable doubt. The confession of all the perpetrators on the commission of this coup, although they call it “Corrective Measures” even though it is a coup with complete conditions and elements.
    10. The acts committed by the perpetrators also constitute a crime under Article 51 of the Sudanese Criminal Act 1991, which states in some of its paragraphs that: (A person is considered a perpetrator of the crime of inciting war against the state and is punishable by death or life imprisonment or imprisonment for a shorter period with the possibility of confiscating all of his property, if he/ she:
    (A) Incites a war against the state militarily by gathering or training individuals or collecting weapons or equipment, or initiates or incites the offender to do so or supports them in any way.
    (B) (Whoever incites any member of the regular forces to rebel, break obedience, or abandon his duty towards the state).
    There is no doubt that this coup d'état dissolved the Sovereignty Council and the Council of the Ministers by military forces, the perpetrators kidnapped the Prime Minister and took him hostage, as well as the ministers and members of his government, and some members of the Sovereignty Council. These actions constitute the crime of inciting war against the state, since the first is the highest sovereign organ in the state and the symbol of its sovereignty, and the second is the top of the executive organ of the Republic of Sudan, and assaulting the two organs and exposing their occupants by kidnapping, provocation and humiliation is tantamount to inciting war against the State in its worst forms. Therefore, the elements of this article are available beyond the reasonable doubt.
    11. Assuming what the perpetrators did were “Corrective Measures,” as the coup leader and his deputy of the Rapid Support Militia repeat, but the truth is that: the perpetrators of the coup have no power, the right, to take any “corrective measures” to reform the structure of the Sudan Transitional Government. That power according to the Constitutional Document falls within the competences of the Prime Minister Dr. Abdallah Hamdok and his Cabinet, and consultation with a Political Council called the (Political Incubator) of the Transitional Government. Consequently, the allegations of the coup perpetrators are false, null and void.
    12. The Sudanese Armed Forces SAF are represented in the executive government by the Prime Minister, who is by virtue office is the Commander -in -Chief of the SAF, then followed by the Minister of Defense. Hence, The General Commander of the SAF Al- Burhan does not have the power to interfere in the affars of the executive organs in the name of the armed forces.
    Article 10 of the Armed Forces Act 2007 reads as follows:
    10/ 2) without prejudice to the powers of the Commander in- Chief, and the Minister of Defense, the Commander General shall have the power to:
    a) Implements the national defense policy and other defense-related policies,
    b) Estimates the strategic military situation and carrying out strategic tasks,
    c) Supervises the implementation of plans for the strategic use and distribution of forces and assuming the strategic direction to achieve these goals,
    d) Supervises the preparation of plans and programs necessary to enable the armed forces to perform their tasks and duties, organize and modernize them to achieve the same objectives,
    c) Appoints the Chairman and members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in consultation with the Minister of Defense and with the approval of the Commander -in- Chief (the Prime Minister),
    h) Any other tasks assigned to him by a higher competent authority.
    Note: The higher competent authority (in paragraph h above) is the Prime Minister and the Minister of Defense,
    The Commander General of the Army, General Al-Burhan, and his deputy Hemiti, of the Janjaweed Rapid Support Militia, they did not alleged that they have been assigned by the Prime Minister or the Minister of Defense to do what they did.
    Therefore:
    It is clear that not among the tasks and competencies of the Commander General of the SAF General Al-Burhan, and his partners in the military coup of October 25, 2021 to take such a “corrective measures” which undermined the existing transitional regime of the Sudan, and paralyzed the whole country,
    13. The actions taken by the perpetrators of the coup are considered a rebellion against the existing constitutional regime and undermined it.
    Article 162 of the Armed Forces Act of 2007 states as follows:
    (162-1: Whoever commits the crime of rebellion against the constitutional regime is liable to death or imprisonment for a period not exceeding twenty years with the possibility of deprivation of all or part of the pension or privileges, whoever undertakes, agrees or plans with others to prejudice the constitutional or security order or the unity of the State by using armed force, or incites war against it, or prepares materially or morally for that, or commits any actions, or makes any communications or equipment that may cause that,
    2- Without prejudice to the generality of Clause (1) above, each of the following shall be deemed to have committed the crime of rebellion against the constitutional regime:
    (a) He who is present when committing any act of rebellion against the constitutional regime and is aware of it and does not make every effort to suppress it or prevent its occurrence;
    (b) Who bears arms or joins any armed group that takes the means of armed action against the constitutional order,
    (C) He who is aware or has reason to believe that there is an existing rebellion or an intention to carry out the rebellion or an agreement with which has occurred and does not reach or delay in reporting to the competent authority or to his commander.
    . From the foregoing, it is clear that the actions of the perpetrators constituted a military coup that undermined the Transitional Constitutional Government of the Republic of Sudan, and a rebellion against it.
    . Based on the above, we kindly request the opening of a criminal case under the articles mentioned above against the perpetrators above, and all those who colluded with them by directly participation, inciting, encouraging, tempting or providing facilities to carry out these crimes,
    The petitioners are ready to bring direct, indirect and material evidence to prove these crimes beyond the reasonable doubt.
