Editorial: Number One Liar

The Sudan’s Bar Association (SBA) is not the exclusion when it comes to the Amensty International (AI) and its story with Sudan

; that this AI has never stopped accusing Sudan of possessing chemical weapons to kill its people with, especially in the region of Darfur. 
After thorough investigation of the issue of chemical weapons, especially legally, SBA has reached an irrevocable conclusion that this AI is a mere liar about what it says about Sudan and for this reason it should pay the price dearly. Now, it is noticed as engaging seriously to form a committee of expert lawyers to file a suit against AI for tarnishing the reputation of Sudan immensely and tremendously. 
In reality, this SBA is not the sole entity that is to question the credibility of AI regarding the topic of the chemical weapons. It is preceded by both Germany and UNAMID in Sudan. 
Germany has clearly expressed its doubts concerning the report of AI. Its State Minister of the Foreign Ministry has described the report as utterly unbelievable.
This evidence from abroad against AI has been supported hugely by UNAMID domestically. UNAMID has been assigned the responsibility of making peace and stability as prevailing all over the lands of Darfur. Its testimony against AI goes like this; that none of its forces whose number amounts to 20,000 persons, a combination of both soldiers and civilians, have perceived  any physical presence of chemical weapons in the territories of Darfur. That none of its offices and medical units which are widely scattered there happens to report cases as such and even the armed rebel movements of Darfur do not talk about or confirm anything related to this subject matter.
Needless to say, UNAMID should be listened to attentively and by all, for a very simple reason: it is the international community that imposes it forcibly on Sudan and therefore its witness on any matter; be it chemical weapons and none, should be given due heed.
In conclusion, we can say this; all, especially SBA, Germany and UNAMID, have tightly cornered this AI; and all the three of them have proven beyond any doubt that AI is the number one liar, to say the least.
