U.N. ENVOY JAN PRONK has been kicked out of Sudan for blogging:

Foreign Ministry spokesman Ali al-Sadig said Pronk had until mid-day Wednesday to leave.

“The reason is the latest statements issued by Mr. Pronk on his Web site regarding severe criticism of the Sudanese Armed Forces and the fact that he said the government of Sudan is not implementing the Darfur peace agreement,” al-Sadig added.

He said the Foreign Ministry met with Pronk on Sunday and had informed him of its decision.

Pronk has previously had problems with the government because of comments he published on his Web log www.janpronk.nl. The latest blog entry said Darfur rebels had beaten the army in two major battles in the last two months.

Here’s the blog. I’m happy to hear that the government’s doing badly, given that it’s trying to accomplish a genocide.

Austin Bay: “He blogged the truth and the Sudan government now says ‘goodbye.'”
