#OperationSawiyan (26 – 30 August) involved 200 Sudanese officers who rescued 94 victims, including 85 minors, from criminal networks involved in illegal migration, child labour and exploitation, and forced begging. The officers represented national entities which include the Criminal Investigation Department, Immigration, Human Trafficking, Child Protection Unit, as well as INTERPOL’s National Central Bureau in Khartoum. Police also seized USD 20,000 which they believe included ransom money obtained from the abduction of a migrant. The victim was amongst those rescued during the operation. With investigations ongoing, 14 (12 women and 2 men) suspected traffickers were arrested. The operation was held at multiple hotspots in Khartoum, including its international airport, as well as at open-air gold mines to the East of the city.
