Guilty Or NotUniversity Expels Student After Military Court Saves Him From Jail
Awad was jailed, tried for conspiracy and spying then kicked out of the university
A student of the University of Khartoum, Saeed Ali Mohamed El Awad, has been expelled by the institution after he was acquitted acquitted by a military court of spying and conspiracy against the state.

Awad was a second year student of Economics and Social Studies before he was arrested on the 25th of November 2013 at his home in Um Cham Chaka, near Abu Karshola.
Alongside other suspects, Awad was accused of spying for the Sudan People’s Liberation Army-North (SPLM-N) and conspiracy against the state.
In April 2014, following several hearings, a military court acquitted him citing lack of evidence.
The judge ruled that the evidence against Mohamed El Awad does not lead to his conviction under article 141/1 of the Criminal Procedure Act.
But that did not end his woes.
According to him, the university informed him of his dismissal because of his long absence from attending lectures.
Awad’s dismissal smacks of political harassment because the institution is aware of the reason for his extended absence and should have made exemptions for him.
During a radio interview with Radio Tamazuj, Awad claimed he is still receiving verbal threats from security agent on his mobile phone.
