SUBJECT: SUDAN/DARFUR: SLM/AW LEADERSHIP COUNCIL SUSPENDS
LEADER ABDUL WAHID AL NOUR

1. (SBU) UK-based Sudan Liberation Movement/Abdul Wahid
(SLM/AW) Spokesman Yahia Ahmed al Bashir Bolad informed
Poloff February 11 that the SLM/AW Leadership Council took a
decision February 11 to "freeze authorities and power of the
head of movement Mr. Abdul Wahid Mohammed Ahmed Nour."
(COMMENT: While Yahia al Bashir has reported accurately on
the internal politics of SLM/AW in the past, it is unclear
from London what the practical effect of this declaration
will be. END COMMENT.)

2. (U) The SLM/AW Leadership Council issued the following
statement to AU/UN Joint Mediator Jibriel Bassole, UNSC
Members, the EU, and the AU:

Decisions of the Leadership Council of Sudan Liberation
Movement to Freeze Authorities and Powers of the Head of the
Movement Mr. Abdul Wahid Mohammed Ahmed Nour

Name of Decision: This decision is called a decision to
freeze authorities and powers of the Head of Movement and to
authorize the Leadership Council of the Movement to exercise
the frozen authorities and powers of the Head of Movement.

According to Clause 55 of the main statute of the Sudan
Liberation Movement (Abdul Wahid al Nour), as the authorities
and powers granted to the Leadership Council of the Movement,
the following decisions have been issued:

1. To freeze authorities and powers of the Head of Movement
Mr. Abdul Wahid Mohammed Ahmed Nour due to his public voiced
and written refusal, the right of self-determination for the
people of Darfur and his persistence to the united liberal
and secular Sudan. The international laws guaranteed the
right of self-determination to the nations that have suffered
genocide crimes, ethnic cleansing crimes and crimes of war,
crime against humanity and rape, thus right for the
self-determination is a duty for the people of Darfur.

2. To authorize the Leadership Council of Sudan Liberation
Movement to exercise the frozen authorities and powers of the
Head of Movement, Mr. Abdul Wahid Mohammed Ahmed Nour.

3. The Leadership Council of Sudan Liberation Movement
reiterates its confirmation to persist on the right of
self-determination for the people of Darfur as basic
reference and cornerstone to solve the Darfur case, after the
governing regime in Khartoum committing genocide crimes,
ethnic cleansing crimes, war crimes and crimes against
humanity and rape crimes against the people of Darfur.

4. To dismiss Mr. Ahmed Mohammedin Abdullah Daw Elbeir from
his position as consultant and theorist of the Movement and
to transfer him to the investigating committee by charges of
financial corruption.

5. To dismiss Mr. Nimr Mohammed Abdul Rahman, the Military
Spokesman of Sudan Liberation Army, from his position and
transfer him to the investigating committee, accusing him of
assassination charges of commanders and circumstances of
arresting Sudan Liberation Movement / Commander Yousif Ahmed
Yousif (Kerjokola).

Issued, signatory and sealed by the Leadership Council of
Sudan Liberation Movement (Abdul Wahid al Nour), to be
implemented as from the date of issue.
