Few weeks ago Sudan’s General Intelligence Service (GIS) announced seizure of large amounts of weapons and ammunition, besides different types of drugs.
GIS’s chief Abu-Bakr Dambalab said at a press conference in Khartoum that the GIS is a national body performing its duty with high professionalism, noting the GIS works in coordination with all other security systems including the armed forces, the rapid support forces and the military intelligence.
We believe that the recent procedures in restructuring the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) to become the General Intelligence Service (GIS) comes in the context of the restructuring the agency and to keep up with the regime change in the country.
The GIS has become more professional and participates in the protection of the country and the maintenance of national security under complex threats surrounding the region and the continent.
In accordance with the new reform, the GIS reportedly will no longer be authorized to arrest people or carry out search operation.
The GIS new mandate is a continuation of its great efforts for the sake of stable Sudan.
We all know the CIA, FBI of the USA, MI6 of Britain, and the KJB of Russia as the most known intelligence agencies in making the difference.
Sudan is not an exception, and accordingly the recent calls for dissolving the intelligence agency of the country are unjustifiable because every country is proud of its intelligence service.
The Sudanese intelligence agency preceded the revolution as its operations represented the economic arm of the country in protecting the rich resources of the country besides aborting all the attempts aiming at destroying the Sudanese economy or its people.
As an example, last week a force from GIS Anti-illegal Migration and Human Trafficking Division freed in a qualitative security operation dozens of hostages of nationalities of neighboring African countries, who had been held in a house at Al-Jeraif Gharb area of Khartoum.
The commander of the operation said that there was information about the presence of a person who had rented an apartment at Al-Jeraif Gharb neighborhood and detaining the victims in it, pointing out that the accused has a set of forged seals he used for forging passports, stressing that the accused was arrested with a set of forged seals, foreign currencies and drugs.
The commander of the operation revealed the existence of close coordination with the other regular forces and justice organs to combat the phenomenon.
Academically, the General Intelligence Service has its distinguished academy, Higher Academy for Strategic and Security Studies with its clear mandate in monitoring and analyzing reactions in the regional and international environment; thinking about the production of knowledge-based strategic and security in all areas; consolidating the strategic security of scientific knowledge; cooperation with academic institutions, research centers and studies related concerns center at home and abroad; and lastly capacity building and rehabilitation of staff at various levels.
The GIS has its finger print in supporting the sports in general.
The GIS has its remarkable stance in protecting the sit-inners a matter that contributed in making it a success, hence leading to overthrowing the regime on April 11, 2019.
It is good that the leaderships of the country affirmed the necessity of the existence of an effective intelligence agency at this crucial stage of the revolution.
The GIS is now doing its work in a professional manner depending on its accumulated experience, professionalism, and technical capabilities to achieve the national tasks of the government.
These days we urge the GIS to resume its monitoring and controlling the flow of flour; fuel and other commodities, considering that its elements succeeded sometime ago in bringing about control on those commodities.
Give me a national, professional and clever intelligence agency; I give you a stable country with flourished economy, good governance, and productive people towards a bright future.
