Statement on Sudan’s Decision to Disarm Civilians in Darfur

The Darfur Relief and Documentation Centre has been closely monitoring the recent decisions of the Government of Sudan (GoS) to reorganize its allied militia groups and to disarm civilians, including some government-sponsored tribal military formations in Darfur. GoS also announced its intention to disarm civilians and irregular combatants in West Kordofan State.
