(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The Sudanese authorities on Sunday set free the opposition leader Al-Sadiq Al Siddiq after one month imprisonment for criticizing the security services.

Al-Mahdi, a prominent political and religious figure and ex-prime minister (1966 - 1967), was released after an appeal presented by his attorney to the Minister of Justice.

Based on the Article 58 of the Criminal Procedures Law of 1991 and in keeping with the spirit of national consensus, the minister approved the appeal and dropped the criminal suit against Al-Mahdi, the state SUNA news agency quoted chief of the State Security Prosecution Yasser Ahmad Mohammad as saying.

A large number of supporters of Al-Mahdi's Umma Party gathered in Umm Durman city, to the north of Khartoum, to welcome him.

Al-Mahdi was arrested on May 17 against the backdrop of his criticisms of the human rights violations by the rapid intervention corps of the security and secret services.

He was accused of defaming the authorities and undermining the constitutional system, a charge which could lead to capital punishment.

Soon after his arrest, Ummah Party decided to boycott the national dialogue with the government, launched by President Omar Al-Bashir in January in a bid to find a comprehensive solution to the political standoff in the country.
