– MOHAMMED SERAJ
* Mohammed Seraj the leader of the Addis-Ababa Attempt on the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, on 06/26/1995, is a Sudanese citizen.
Mohammed Seraj was wounded in the attempt and was captured by the Ethiopian police but, on 07/02/1995, the Ethiopian authorities denied he was in their hands. The Egyptian intelligence suspected that elements within the Ethiopian Security services facilitated his arrival to Addis Ababa and smuggled him out to Sudan after the failed attack.
Mohammed Seraj spent thousands of dollars, prior to the attack, to rent three houses in Addis Ababa and three cars. His men left behind a stash of weapons that included rocket launchers and grenades at a morgue in Addis Ababa.
The attacking squad contained six men. Five others, who were killed by the Ethiopian police during and after the attack, were all identified as Egyptian Islamists from the EGYPTIAN Jamaa Islamiya. Mohammed Seraj, the commander, was the only non Egyptian in the hit squad, which support the circumstantial evidence that he was operating on behalf of elements in the Sudan’s Regime.
“Sudan has been plotting to assassinate Mubarak since 1990,” Colonel Abdel Aziz Jaafar, a former Sudanese intelligence officer who found refuge in Cairo in 1994, told Al-Akhbar newspaper, on 07/03/1995. He identified Mohammed Seraj as a Sudanese intelligence officer in the rank of Captain.
“I worked with Captain Seraj for many years; he is the right-hand man of the head of Sudanese intelligence,” he added. (It must be taken in consideration that Colonel Abdel Aziz Jaafar was motivated by his resentment to the Sudanese regime and his desire to please his hosts).
