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.

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

02 October 2015

 

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 - to UN representatives

03 September 2015

 

To Permanent Representatives
of Members and Observer States of the
UN Human Rights Council

RE: Gravely deteriorating human rights and humanitarian situation in Sudan

Excellency,

We write to share our serious concerns about the deteriorating human rights situation in Sudan, marked by harsh political repression and continued impunity. There is increasing evidence that Sudanese security forces are committing war crimes in the conflict areas of Darfur, Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile states. We call on your delegation to support the development and adoption of a strong and responsive resolution on Sudan under agenda Item 4 at the 30th session of the Human Rights Council in September.

Over the past four years in Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile, the Sudanese government has engaged in indiscriminate and targeted aerial bombardment of civilian areas, killing and wounding hundreds, if not thousands, of civilians. Government forces have destroyed civilian property including villages, health facilities, schools, mosques and churches, and the authorities continue to obstruct humanitarian assistance. Government forces and allied militia have also been implicated in alarming evels of sexual violence. Ongoing attacks and fighting have caused massive displacement over the past year.

DARFURIS AND HUMAN RIGHTS GROUPS DEMAND RENEWAL OF UNAMID

 Over 80 Sudanese and Human Rights Groups Urgently Petition the UNSC as UNAMID Mandate Set to Expire

NEW YORK, KAMPALA and GENEVA – Wednesday, June 24, 2015 – Today, 83 organisations and activists addressed an open letter to the fifteen members of the United Nations Security Council demanding the renewal of the mandate of the African Union and United Nations Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) for one additional year. They described the situation in Darfur as “the genocide of the twenty-first century par excellence.” Listing the most recent data and incidents that represent violations of international human rights and humanitarian law, the letter argued that the horrific security and humanitarian crisis that necessitated the deployment of UNAMID in 2007 is still intact. They expressed their fears that the withdrawal of UNAMID meant that the infrastructure and logistics, built by western donors, currently used by UNAMID will be used by the government army and pro-government militia groups to enhance their ability to commit international crimes in Darfur. The letter reminded members of the Security Council that previous regional and international responses to end the genocide in Darfur have failed and it has further stressed that the people of Darfur deserve a robust, strong and independent peacekeeping mission.

The letter calls on the world to unite in its resolve not to abandon the people of Darfur at this time of greatest need or to turn its back on them. It recommended a number of measures to be taken by the UN Security Council:
