Radio SPLA Reports Commentary on TMC's `Tricks' EA142110 (Clandestine) Radio of theSudanese People's Liberation Army in English 1300 GMT 14 Apr 86 [Station Commentary: "The Past Still Rings in Our Minds") [Text] Some generals from the Transitional Military Council [TMC) on 22d March 1986 held a meeting in the house of Lieutenant General Muhammad Mirghani of the Sudan Air Force. According to reliable sources, among those in the meeting were Sudan's TMC defense minister, Major General 'Uthman 'Abdullah, Taj al-Din [Abdallah Fadl, deputy chairman of the TMC], and Faris Husni of the military intelligence. The aim of this secret meeting was to find out who leaks, or how does SPLA get information on government secret activities. The TMC, because of its manifold tricks, during this secret meeting it accused the organization ACROSS [Christian relief organiza- tion) working in Darfur to have been responsible for these so- called intelligence leaks to the SPLA, and later on confronted this organization ordering it to close down its work within 15 days and to leave the Sudan. These dirty tricks of the TMC are always loud and clear. It also - the TMC - claimed and accused the ACROSS organization of supplying food to the SPLA. It further accused the ACROSS in western Sudan to have been responsible for leaking government information to the SPLA about govern- ment troop movements to the south and west. These, of course, are not true. The main reasons which made the TMC to discontinue ACROSS activities was that the TMC wants to make these towns, Nyala and Al-Fashir, Al-Duaym etc, military training centers.
