Question A. Which Sudan ? There are two now. Question B. Is he just
Sudanese, as you put it, or does he reside there. If he resides
there, then Sudan falls under export restrictions. Applies to US
Citizens. This also encompasses technology, and as such software.
A. His CV says just "Sudan", not "South Sudan". I guess the
northern (and the more difficult) one.
B. I have no idea about his current residence or where his project
was developed (isn't that the important part?). I hope he can
clear it up for you.
