“Sudan’s Anti-Corruption Whitewash,” a new report from The Sentry
May 2, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
A private luncheon roundtable featuring discussion of a new, timely report from The Sentry, titled “Sudan’s Anti-Corruption Whitewash: The Bashir Regime’s Hollow Commitment to Combating Illicit Finance.” The Sentry, a partner of The Enough Project, is an investigative team that follows the dirty money tied to war criminals responsible for Africa’s deadliest conflicts and their commercial collaborators inside and outside the continent.
Joshua White, Director for Policy and Analysis at The Sentry, will present the report’s findings and their implications for a post-Bashir Sudan. The report contains an expert-level assessment of Sudan’s unwillingness and inability to sufficiently combat money laundering and terrorist financing during a time when Khartoum is desperate to expand its access to the international financial system. Topics of discussion will include whether Bashir’s recent removal might lead to Sudan living up to its commitments to fight money laundering and terrorist financing, or whether we should expect business as usual from the new regime.
