August 20, 2009 (KHARTOUM/PARIS) — Sudanese authorities arrested some 27 residents of a North Darfur camp in a move to intimidate residents who voice their rejection to the peace process.

A local leader of Abu Shouk camp, near the capital of North Darfur state El-Fasher, told Sudan Tribune that an Umda (local chief) Hussein Ishaq Sajo is among the arrested people.

The source who requested anonymity said the government attempts to frighten the IDPs and quell any opposition to government plans to involve the residents of Darfur camps in the Doha peace process.

Different local leaders in Darfur camps support the SLM founder Abdel Wahid Al-Nur who is opposed to peace talks until the government disarms its militias and organizes the return of the displaced population to their homeland.

Reacting from Paris to the "arbitrary arrest", Al-Nur hailed the struggle of Darfur IDPs for their rights adding this arrest once again confirms that Darfur people are not protected and their security remains an issue of concern.

He also regretted the "political cover provided by the US President envoy Scott Gration to the Sudanese government to carry out its genocidal schema in Darfur."

He added that these civilians do not commit any crime to be arrested. He also slammed Gration for his support to government campaigns to involve the IDPs in the peace process.

Last month during a series of meetings with Darfur displaced people Gration encouraged them to prepare themselves to take part in a peace process hosted by the Qatari government.

    There is no surprise in what happened to those innocent IDPs, because they are the victims of terrorists campaign the so-called government conducts to silence its critics. I totally agree with Nur for refusing to sit down with janjaweeds, who have stolen power in Khartoum.Since it is not possible to negotiate with criminals, Nur has taken a right stand in asking for the removal of all these dogs before any meaming serach for peace can be done. This regime simply needs to be removed and throwin into garbage. The janjaweed regime is no different from those who committed geinocide in Rwanda in 1994. The possible discussion that can be made with them is that they must be asked to hand themselves in to The Hague for trial. Hence, they should not be allowed to commit more crimes as they are now arresting innocent people.

      Shame Shame on Sudanese authority! you hipocratically hail the release of a terroriat while back at home you arrest innocent civilians on no ground.

      You terrorists you only see justice in beastlike life. And you pretend to be serving a god you call Alah, and use his name to slain fellow human beings created in the image of God. Continue that way until you days come, remember there is nothing everlasting except God. Ask questions to yourselves where the one who was strongly supprting you, Saddam Huissen is today? There is an end for everything.
