KHARTOUM, Jan. 7 (Xinhua) -- A Sudanese government committee on Tuesday announced confiscation of all headquarters of the dissolved National Congress Party (NCP), the former ruling party, in the capital of Khartoum and all states.

Sudan's Committee for Dismantling Ingaz (Salvation) Regime and Removing Empowerment made the announcement at a news conference in Khartoum.

The committee also decided to seize the assets and accounts of Ashorooq and Tayba TV channels as well as the Al-Sudani and Al Ray Al Am newspapers, and dissolve the trade unions, professional associations and the Holy Quran Society.

"The work of the committee is not intended to settle scores, but to dismantle the one-party state for the interest of all-Sudanese state," Mohamed Al-Faki Suleiman, a member of the committee, said at the news conference.

He added that the committee targets whoever committed a crime against the Sudanese people during the past 30 years.

To this end, the security forces seized the headquarters of the Ashorooq and Tayba TV channels, as well as the Al-Sudani and Al Ray Al Am newspapers.

On Nov. 29, 2019, Sudan's Sovereign Council and the Council of Ministers approved a law to dismantle the former regime, including the former ruling party NCP.
