On: October 22, 2006
UN envoy for Sudan Jan Pronk has to leave Sudan because of a weblog post about the Sudanese army. The post in question can be read here: www.janpronk.nl/index120.html.
Pronk states that the army has lost a lot of soldiers in fighting the rebels in the country. The Sudanese army now claims that Pronk is trying to set up a psychological war against them, and says he has to leave the country in 72 hours.
Democracy on weblogs seems to be as democratic as the country you live in. The CNN article can be found here: Sudan orders U.N. envoy to leave.
