The United Nations Special Representative confirms that Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok is in good health, but is still under house arrest.
The UN Special Representative for Sudan, Volker Peretz, discussed with the dismissed Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, options for mediation and ways to move forward in Sudan.

A few days ago, a security source and another in Hamdok's office revealed to Reuters that the dismissed Prime Minister had returned to his home, without giving any other details.
The commander of the Sudanese army, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, had revealed Hamdok's whereabouts, the date of his release and return to his home.
For its part, Sudan's Ministry of Information considered what happened in Sudan as a "full-fledged military coup," and called on the masses to cut off the road to military action until the coup attempt is overthrown, demanding the release of detainees.
The ministry mentioned that several ministers and members of the Transitional Sovereign Council were arrested.
