RMCE condemns UN Commission on Human Rights for appeasing Sudan’s rogue regime


Massaleit Community in Exile (RMCE)
Press Release
April 25, 2004.

The Representative of the Massaleit Community in Exile (RMCE) strongly condemns the UN Commission on Human Rights for its failure to take to task Sudan’s brutal regime for its role in the ongoing ethnic cleansing in western Sudan. The credibility of this UN body is compromised by the ability of rogue regimes to shield each other from scrutiny.

Sudan’s regime welcomed the mild resolution adopted at the meeting of the UN body on Thursday 23 April 2004. The regime is aware that the international community lacks the political will to take decisive measures to hold it to account for disregarding the fundamental norms of the institution charged with protecting human rights around the world. Government forces and their allies in Arab militias (or Jangaweed) have displaced over one million people internally, and forced a further 110,000 people to flee and seek refuge in neighbouring Chad. They have murdered, raped, looted and committed other grave human rights violations with impunity. It is almost certain that these atrocities will continue in the absence of any meaningful action.

We call on the countries and organizations committed to protecting human rights to take decisive action against Sudan’s leaders for targeting their own people. This is the only way to avoid a repeat of the Rwandan tragedy.
