Expelled Agencies Returning to Sudan?

There are reports that four humanitarian groups kicked out of Sudan in March are being allowed to return to the country. The groups include CARE International, Save the Children, Padco, and Mercy Corps.

The Sudanese government expelled 13 agencies in total after the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for President Omar al-Bashir. According to the reports, all expelled agencies can renew their operations in Sudan provided they register under slightly changed names and logos.

However (and this is a big however), the Sudanese government has denied these reports – firmly stating that “those that have been expelled are expelled” and “will not return to Sudan”.
