DRDC - FRONTPAGE - 20 jul 2017 Assault against Students from Darfur in Sudan

20 July 2017

 

Assault against Students from Darfur in Sudan

The Darfur Relief and Documentation Centre (DRDC) notes with concern the ongoing assault against students from Darfur in universities and higher education institutions in Sudan. The most recent incident in this respect has been reported at the University of Bakht Alruda, Al-Dewaim Town (White Nile State), where more than one thousand students from Darfur were forced to submit their resignations and abandon the university campus in protest of a series of abuses and maltreatment they have reportedly suffered in the hands of the university administration and the security forces. The students accused the university administration and the local authorities of harassment and intimidation, disruption of life and studies as well as systematic exclusion, discrimination and physical and verbal abuses, including the use of disparaging language and racist slur against them.

DRDC - FRONTPAGE - 12 jul 2017 Decision of the US Administration on Economic Sanctions on Sudan

12 July 2017

 

Decision of the US Administration on Economic Sanctions on Sudan

The Darfur Relief and Documentation Centre (DRDC) notes with satisfaction the decision adopted by the US Administration on 11 July 2017 to extend the review period accorded to the Government of Sudan (GoS) until 12 October 2017 before lifting the economic sanctions maintained by successive US Administrations on Sudan during the last 20 years. It is worth mentioning that the USA has imposed unilateral economic sanctions regime on Sudan in 1997 and it had been further strengthened in 2006 due to the criminal responsibility of GoS for massive violations of human rights and international humanitarian law in Darfur. In this decision, the US Administration outlined that it needed more review time to establish GoS’s commitment to sustained positive actions on matters listed in Executive Order 13761 issued by former US President Barak Obama on 13 January 2017.

DRDC - FRONTPAGE - 06 jul 2017 Statement 2 Widespread Cholera Epidemic in Sudan

Monday, 06 July 2017

 

Statement on the Widespread of Cholera Epidemic in Sudan

In follow-up of its statement of 12 June 2017 on the outbreak of cholera epidemic in Sudan, the Darfur Relief and Documentation Centre (DRDC) once again rings the alarm bell about the growing health risks facing thousands of vulnerable communities in many parts of Sudan. The ongoing cholera epidemic dates back to August 2016, when hundreds of cases of infections with cholera bacterium “Vibrio Cholerae” were confirmed in the Blue Nile and Sennar States. Numerous sources including the US Embassy in Khartoum confirmed the outbreak of cholera epidemic in Sudan. According to the government records more than 18,000 cases of “acute watery diarrhoea” – which is the symptom of cholera – were confirmed in 16 out of Sudan’s 18 States, including the White Nile, Blue Nile, Khartoum, Sennar, North, South and West Kordofan, River Nile, Northern State, Gedarif, Kassala, Red Sea, Gezira and East, West, South and North Darfur States. Independent medical sources in Sudan estimate that at least 25,000 people have been infected with cholera bacterium while about 1,000 could have died since the outbreak of the cholera epidemic.

DRDC - FRONTPAGE - 06 jul 2017 Decision ICC South Africa Request to arrest General Omar Al-Bashir

06 July 2017

 

Decision of the International Criminal Court on non-compliance of South Africa with the Request to arrest General Omar Al-Bashir

The Darfur Relief and Documentation Centre (DRDC) welcomes the decision adopted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) on 6 July 2017 under article 87 (7) of the Rome Statute of the ICC on the non-compliance of the Republic of South Africa with the ICC’s request to arrest and surrender General Omar Al-Bashir while he was on South African territory between 13 and 15 June 2015. It is disappointing that the ICC found that South Africa has indeed been in breach of its obligations under the Rome Statute of the ICC by refusing to honour the ICC request to apprehend and surrender General Omar Al-Bashir.

DRDC - FRONTPAGE - 03 jul 2017 Statement extensions mandate UN-African mission in Darfur

Statement on the Extension of the mandate of the UN-African Union Mission in Darfur

The Darfur Relief and Documentation Centre (DRDC) commends the United Nations Security Council for its unanimous decision renewing the mandate of the United Nations-African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) until 30 June 2018. By adopting Resolution 2363(2017) of 29 June 2017, the Security Council renewed its concern about the deteriorating security and humanitarian conditions in Darfur and the need to keep the situation under its scrutiny as it represents a threat to regional and international peace and security. DRDC fully agrees with the Council’s conclusion that: “… the overall security situation in Darfur remains precarious due to activities of militia groups, the incorporation of some militias into auxiliary units of the Government of Sudan forces, which have become key actors in the conflict between the Government of Sudan and the armed movements and in inter-communal conflict and further exacerbate insecurity and threats against civilians in Darfur.
