According to SCC, “The Pentecostal Church in Khartoum in particular is targeted these days. Its main building, 20 years old, was closed, and any activity was prohibited. Recently, they received a warning from the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS), that the church building would be confiscated, for the benefit of the Sudanese government.”

Rev. El Ramli announced that the SCC’s Board of Trustees is planning to call together “a large meeting with the heads of all churches, to discuss these problems extensively”.
