Sudan expels UN official for 'interfering'

10 April 2014, 17:14

Khartoum — Sudan's state news agency says authorities have asked a United Nations official to leave the country, saying that she interfered in Sudan's internal affairs.

SUNA on Wednesday quoted Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abu Bakr el-Seddiq as confirming the expulsion of Pamela DeLargy, head of the U.N. Population Fund office in Sudan.

The Sudanese government told the UN representative in Sudan this step will not affect their cooperation and that it is not targeting the Population Fund itself.

El-Seddiq added that Sudan would welcome an alternative to DeLargy who he said had "violated the regulations."

He did not give any other details.

In 2012, a U.N. human rights officer was forced to leave the country. No clear reasons were given in that case either.
