DRDC - FRONTPAGE - 12 june 2017 Statement Cholera Epidemic in Sudan

Statement on the Widespread of Cholera Epidemic in Sudan

Darfur Relief and Documentation Centre (DRDC) is alarmed that since mid-August 2016, many parts of Sudan have been facing a growing cholera epidemic. Currently the deadly disease spread into hitherto unaffected regions, including the national capital Khartoum and its twin cities Omdurman and Khartoum North (Bahri). Since the outbreak of the disease in August 2016, at least 12 of Sudan’s 18 States were severely affected. The epicentre of the pandemic is the White Nile, Khartoum, North and South Kordofan, River Nile and Northern States. In his address at Sudan’s National Assembly “Parliament” on 1st June 2017, the Federal Minster of Health stated that over the last ten months some 14,659 cases of “acute watery diarrhoea” were reported all over Sudan and that 265 mortalities were reported during this period. DRDC believe that these figures are conservative and do not reflect the reality, however, the case fatality rate deduced is over 1.8% of confirmed cholera cases. This mortality rate is above the threshold to declare cholera epidemic in a country. According to independent medical practitioners in Khartoum and elsewhere in Sudan the numbers of confirmed cases of cholera are much higher and that the mortality rate in some affected areas has reached over 10% of the declared cases.

DRDC - FRONTPAGE - Statement on the Renewed Military Confrontations in Darfur-29 May 2017

Monday, 29 May 2017

 

Statement on the Renewed Military Confrontations in Darfur

The Darfur Relief and Documentation Centre is concerned about the renewed military confrontations in Darfur between the security forces and militias loyal to the Government of Sudan (GoS) and the insurgent Sudan Liberation Movement–Minni Minawi (SLM–MM) and the SLM/Transitional Council led by Nimir Abdelrahman in South, East and North Darfur States since 19 May 2017. The renewed round of large-scale fighting, which continues to date marks an end to the unilateral ceasefire that had been declared by GoS and the Darfur insurgents several months ago and frequently renewed. There are different versions about the reality on the ground and the manner in which the fighting had erupted. GoS claimed that the insurgent groups entered Darfur from South Sudan and Libya while the insurgents maintained that their troops were stationed in areas under their control in Darfur and that they were in fact conducting internal movements for administrative purposes. It seems that the two protagonists inflicted heavy human and material losses on each other.

DRDC - FRONTPAGE - UNHR 30th Session International Response to Sudan Conflict

United Nations Human Rights Council – 30th Session:
Human Rights Groups Disappointed with International Response to Sudan Conflict

Voices for Sudan, International Justice Project, and Darfur Relief and Documentation Centre express their deep concern and disappointment over the outcome of this year’s discussion and, ultimately, today’s passage of an unsatisfactory resolution on Sudan delivered by Algeria on behalf of the Group of African States under Agenda Item 10 at the 30th Session of the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council. President of Voices for Sudan, Jimmy Mulla, states, “The human rights situation in Sudan continues to deteriorate while impunity is the norm. Such a situation cannot be adequately addressed under Item Ten, as was decided today. Sudan should be returned to Agenda Item Four, where it can be properly monitored and assessed.”

DRDC - FRONTPAGE - Sudanese Refugees Dec 2015

Statement on the Expulsion of Sudanese Refugees from Jordan

The Darfur Relief and Documentation Centre (DRDC) is deeply concerned by the decision of Jordan to expel hundreds of Sudanese refugees and asylum seekers. On Wednesday, 16 December 2015, the security forces rounded-up about 800 Sudanese refugees and detained them in inhumane conditions in large hangers at Queen Alia International Airport in Amman. The overwhelming majority of these refugees and asylum seekers originates from the war-torn Darfur region. They expressed genuine fears for their personal safety and physical integrity in case they were forced back to Sudan. The Jordanian authorities is determined to implement this measure in total disregard to warnings from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) that they face persecution in Sudan. About 450 of these victims were expelled to Khartoum on Friday, 18 December 2015.
