About SUDO UK
SUDO (UK) is a registered charity based in the UK which was set up in order to provide a mechanism to support the work of the Sudan Social Development Organisation (SUDO) in Sudan and/or the work of others striving for human rights and social development in the country.
The creation of SUDO (UK) was prompted by concerns about SUDO's ability to function freely in Sudan. On 5 March 2009, SUDO received a letter signed by the General Commissioner of the Humanitarian Assistance Commission (HAC), that the HAC had decided to dissolve the organisation with immediate effect and handover its ten offices as well as all its properties and resources to a HAC committee. On 21 April 2010 Judge Khalid Abdul-Qader Saleh ruled that the General Commissioner of the Humanitarian Assistance Commission had no legal authority to dissolve societies, and hence the order to dissolve SUDO was overturned. However, SUDO remains in discussions with the security authorities about the implementation of this decision and the resumption of their operations.
SUDO (UK) continues to work with other individuals and organizations in pursuit of the objectives of SUDO in Sudan.
