Ex-Darfur group engage in security arrangement procedures in North Darfur


August 3, 2016 (EL-FASHER) - Commissioner of security arrangements at Darfur Regional Authority Babiker Korena said the accommodation of 200 fighters from the Democratic Justice and Equality Movement (DJEM) led by Mohamed Ibrahim Azrag has begun in North Darfur capital El-Fasher on Wednesday.

Korena pointed that DJEM has joined the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur (DDPD) along with two other factions from the Sudan Liberation Movement led by Nur al-Dain Zorgi and Salih Adam Ishag.

The commissioner, who addressed the 200 fighters at the military training camp in the Jadid Al-Sail area, north of El-Fasher, said they are ready to accommodate the rest of the Liberation and Justice Movement (LJM) fighters besides those belonging to rebel group led by Abdalla Gana.

He pointed that his commission is tasked with accommodating fighters belonging to the DDPD signatory groups.

For his part, DJEM leader told Sudan Tribune that 200 fighters from his movement have engaged in the security arrangement procedures, pointing that the majority of fighters were unable to reach the camp for what he described as technical reasons.

“The agreement [DDPD] didn’t meet our desired [goals] but we opted for peace for the sake of the homeland and the people” he said.

“Our fighters would support the Sudanese Armed Forces and peace is the only option. We call on our brothers [in arms] to join the peaceful process” he added .

The DDPD was signed on 11 July 2011 between the Sudanese government and the LJM of Tijani al-Sissi. The Justice and Equality Movement splinter faction led by Bakheit Abdel- Karim Dabajo (JEM-Dabajo) joined the deal on 6 April 2013.
