On the Latest Killings of Innocent Citizens by the Sudan Government’s Janjaweed Militias in DarFur


Press Release

The Sudan Human Rights Organization Cairo Office (SHRO-Cairo) regrettably reports that the Sudan Government, a major partner of the ongoing process of peace negotiations, has committed egregious killings in collaboration with the Janhaweed government-supported terrorist militias. More than a hundred citizens were killed and thousands of people were displaced from their Homeland in unbearable living conditions, according to the latest report by the Massaleit Community in Exile (RMCE), USA.

"While the RMCE appreciates the recent international efforts aimed at bringing a lasting peace to the country, there is need to hold the government to account for its support for Arab militias (the Janjaweed). Also, there is need to send immediate humanitarian assistance to the region to avoid a humanitarian disaster, and to deploy human rights monitors to report on the situation on the ground," ascertains the RMCE Report.

The Sudan Government must know that peace is not a piece meal political game. Peace is a comprehensive process that should equally embrace the whole country with all its regions and peoples on equal basis. Immediate stoppage of this genocidal war, immediate insurance of humanitarian support are urgently needed, and immediate commitment by the Sudan Government, the Janjaweed militias, the DarFur fighting organizations, the democratic patties and civil society of the country, and the International Community would certainly bring wisdom and peaceful solutions to this unprecedented situation in the history of the region.

SHRO-Cairo condemns in the strongest terms the hypocritical position of the Sudan Government, which pretends to care for the tranquility of the country, engages actively in peace negotiations in Kenya, while it continues to brutalize the Sudanese citizens of DarFur without remorse - a policy that jeopardizes the whole well-being of the country and ruthlessly obstructs the Sudan political settlement and peace process in the present time as well as the future.

The Organization strongly supports the rights of the people of DarFur to live without discrimination, politico-administrative injustices, or ethnic intolerance. The Organization asks the fighting organizations to stop all acts of war in the area. The Sudan Government must immediately:

- Stop all acts of war in DarFur;
- Restore peace and tranquility by firm prevention of the Janjaweed terrorist activities;
- Provide immediate humanitarian support for the displaced population;
- Ensure the immediate return of the displaced population to their Homelands in dignity and sufficiency; and
- Recognize the right of people to participate as full partners in the ongoing peace process that is aimed to enforce a comprehensive settlement to the Sudan’s Crisis, indiscriminately.
