Just had a gut punch of bad news, Basically the link is a guy I used to work with and who I look up to like an Uncle. He is hella close to my Dad and when I was doing my EOD course I stayed at his house for a few days and we went shooting (on a gun range at targets) and Basically is a good guy however.....Fuck I can't even type it just here....

Y'know what?....It's really fucking hot here in Africa. Who knew?....Well me, I have been doing this for almost 5 years

The supportive fellow TUPeep in me wants to say sorry about the situation. You and your family are close to this guy. So as a TUP friend I want to sympathize.   

But the conscientious citizen in me needs more information. I read the articles you linked to, but I do confess I don't know a lot about the Sudanese Civil War. So the questions that I have (if you don't mind), as you have been there/are there and are directly involved with the situation and therefore surely know more... First, do you believe your friend really tried to "overthrow the government" as the charge in the article says, or do you believe this is a horsefuck charge? Second, do you guys have a side in this, or are you just there for a job and a paycheck?    

And of course given the situation I fully understand if you chose not to answer, especially on a public board. But since you chose to share the story with us I can't have really have a stance or offer anything without really knowing what's going on, at least from your take.

It's a horse fuck charge as far as I know. But I doubt he was anything more than a security adviser for the VP, I doubt he was trying to overthrow the Government.

I have no side in this, neither does my father (he no longer works in this country). I am here because the company I work for offered me the right amount of money to do the job. I don't care who is in the big boys chair or what country I am in tbh.

As for Will I don't know about his dealings with the VP apart from what has come from his lawyer and facebook updates on a page trying to free him. But to be sentenced to death by hanging in a trial his lawyer called "a mockery of justice" seems excessive

Thank your answering my questions. I just wanted to get a grasp on the situation. In that case based on what you said it seems like anyone associated with or close to a higher up in the government can potentially be accused of anything. I have seen that before in a lot of other countries. Sudan looks very unstable. 

I do extend my sympathies. I hope his lawyer can do something.
