In a new op-ed in the Washington Post, The Sentry’s Co-Founders George Clooney and John Prendergast write: “Sudan’s courageous protesters need more than words. They need strong international action for real change to have a chance.”

Focusing on the critical role that the international community can play in support of the protesters, they add: “As a result of the documented corruption and lack of adequate anti-money-laundering controls recently highlighted by the Sentry, regime elites are likely expanding their efforts to hide their illicitly obtained wealth outside Sudan. Pursuing this capital flight would provide real support to Sudanese protesters. The U.S. Treasury Department and other regulators around the globe should issue public advisories to their financial and real estate sectors warning of the risk of asset flight from Sudanese ‘politically exposed persons’ to their jurisdictions. And the United States should use Global Magnitsky Act sanctions against officials responsible for mass corruption and rights abuses.”
