Official complains to visiting UN expert against human rights reports on Sudan


10 June, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – The newly-appointed United Nations Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in Sudan, Mashood Baderin, arrived in the capital Khartoum on Sunday and held meetings with government officials who criticized reports of international human rights groups on Sudan.

UNOHCHR newly appointed independent expert on the situation of human rights in the Sudan Mashood Adebayo BaderinBaderin, a Nigerian, is mandated by the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to provide technical assistance and capacity-building to aid Sudan in fulfilling its human rights obligations.

In his first visit to Sudan since being appointed earlier year, Baderin held meetings with the country’s Justice Minister Mohamed Bushara Dosa and undersecretary of the foreign ministry Rahmt Allah Mohammed Osman.

Dosa told reporters that his meeting with the UN expert had discussed the situations of human rights in Sudan as well as recommendations to improve them through long and short term programs.

The UN official’s visit follows announcements by Sudan’s state-owned Consultative Council of Human Rights (CCHR) that the country is planning to change strategy at UNHRC’s session in order to counter allegations of abuses raised by international quarters.

The Justice Minister also announced that the CCHR had concluded a study on human rights, and press freedoms in order to submit it to Baderin during his visit. Dosa added that the government is willing to cooperate with the UN expert. He also said that they had confirmed to Baderin that Sudan is “interested in observing human rights from an Islamic perspective.”

Meanwhile, the ministry’s undersecretary said that he told the visiting UN expert that the reports produced by foreign organizations on the human rights situation in Sudan “do not reflect the reality on the ground”

Osman said that the human rights situation in the country’s western region of Darfur had witnessed “great progress”

The meeting between the UN expert and foreign ministry officials also discussed preparations for a technical assistance and capacity building conference due to be held in Khartoum this week. The conference aims to produce a roadmap for supporting Sudan in the field of human rights and will be attended by a number of human rights groups.

Baderin is expected to present his findings and recommendations to the UN Human Rights Council in September 2012.

        I have all the respect to all DARFURIANS including the rebels.

        We DARFURIANS will never go for RAPING and ABDUCTION of women.
        But we are worriors and that is main part of our culture excluding FUR, MASALEET and DAJO whom are peaceful tribes.

          Man, documents and evidence are being collected to further acssertain the NCP regime is brought to book. Pressure is mounting with horific pictures taken in 2010 in Darfur of burnt people, mostly children and women from the black Darufuris. This is pathetic genocide of which you should condemn.

    101. The fact that the Janjaweed are described as Arab militias does not imply that all Arabs are fighting-on the side of the Janjaweed. In fact, the Commission found that many Arabs in Darfur are opposed to the-Janjaweed, and some Arabs are fighting with the rebels, such as certain Arab commanders and their men from the Misseriya and Rizeigat tribes. ...

      ...At the same time, many non-Arabs are supporting the-Government and serving in its army. Thus, the term “Janjaweed” referred to by victims in Darfur certainly-does not mean “Arabs” in general, but rather Arab militias raiding their villages and committing other-violations.

    You must seek for an awareness session from Dr Ali Al-Haj Mohammad about Darfur’s problem. Also, it will be beneficial for you to look for, and obtain a book call "John Garang Speaks"written by Dr Mansour Khalid. You will find all the reasons and answers for why African Sudanese including Darfurians have opted armed struggle to recover their confisicated rights.
