The trial of Sudanese pastors and a Czech aid worker has continued in Sudan with no real progress or end in sight. Sudan is known for persecuting Christians by accusing of endangering the security of the country National Security. In January of 2015 Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) was given a bigger broader power through a mandate to combat “political and social threats.”

11/30/2016 Sudan (Sudan Tribune) – The trial of a Czech journalist and two Christian pastors charged with espionage, waging war against the state and inciting hatred against religious congregations, has continued in Khartoum on Monday.
Last December, the National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) arrested Czech missionary and filmmaker Petr Jasek four days after he entered Sudan carrying two bags containing a laptop, a mobile phone, a video camera besides other documents.
Jasek reportedly confessed that he received the documents and the video from a colleague by the name of Grad Phelps in South Kordofan in 2012.
In the trial which resumed in the Sudanese capital Monday, the prosecutor told the court that Jasek has entered Sudan to carry intelligence activities.
