KHARTOUM June 29: Sudan’s economy is dominated by the military and that led to the military coup in Sudan last October. That is the conclusion drawn by C4ADS in a report released today. Center for Advanced Defense Studies is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing data-driven analysis and evidence-based reporting on global conflict and transnational security issues.
They use cutting-edge technologies to manage, integrate, and analyze disparate data from diverse languages, regions, and sources, incorporating their own field research from conflict zones and fragile states.
The report, named Breaking The Bank, zoomed in on two major banks, Omdurman National Bank (ONB) and Khaleej Bank, which the military and security forces use to access global financial networks, respectively.
Khaleej Bank was controlled mainly by joint ventures that belong to the United Arab Emirates and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) – two players that have strong political and economic relations. The report estimated that the family of RSF leader Mohamad Hamdan Dagalo controls 28.35 percent of the shares in Khaleej Bank.
The Sudanese deep state is composed of mid- to high-ranking officials from the security and civil services who abuse the state system to maintain their network of economic and political power.
