Sudan to investigate UAE's transfer of Sudanese Guards to Libya

Sudanese authorities said on Tuesday they were investigating the case of Sudanese men who were transferred from the UAE to Libya after being hired as guards by an Emirati company. 

Sudan’s foreign ministry is said to be working with Emirati authorities to investigate the case of Sudanese guards transferred to Libyan oil facilities despite being hired on contracts that did not mention such work. Some of the men’s families gathered outside the ministry building to protest amid a heavy security presence. The foreign ministry has responded to the protests and has said it is working to obtain more details on the Emirati firm and the conditions of the Sudanese nationals.

The families also demonstrated outside the Emirati embassy in Khartoum on Tuesday for the second time. 

Black Shield Security Services, an Emirati security firm, has reportedly misled around 3000 Sudanese recruits. The men were hired to work as security guards in hospitals and malls within the UAE. Instead, they were sent to fight as mercenaries in armed conflicts in the region.
