Sudan kills seven IDPs in Darfur camp


November 28, 2009 (PARIS) — Seven Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) were killed Friday in West Darfur following a wrangle between the residents and government troops which attempted to force them to take part in voter registration.

The IDPs ask the government to disarm militia and to bring to justice responsible of atrocities committed in the restive region as well as to conclude a peace deal with the rebel groups before organize elections in the country.

However, the local authorities in Darfur launched a voter registration process in the three states of the province in a bid to count IDPs that the UN estimates their number to be 2.7 million.

Many of them resisted the Sudan fifth population and housing census conducted in April year. The total number of Darfur three states is estimated at 7 501 012 according to the figures published by the Sudanese authorities.

The Sudanese regular forces and militia in West Darfur state on Friday evening — at 05:00pm – killed seven people in Deleij IDPs camp, some 280 klm from El Geneina the capital of West Darfur state. The incident took place after attempts by local officials to persuade the residents of the camp to register in electoral lists.

In a discussion with the officials who were accompanied by regular forces from the army and police besides Janjaweed militiamen the residents reiterated their rejection to the electoral operation.

"They had a hot discussion with the officials after declaring their support to (the rebel leader) Abdel Wahid Al-Nur, then the regular forces and the militia started shooting on the innocent civilians," said Hussein Abu Sharati the spokesperson of Darfur IDPs and refugees.

He further said the peacekeepers in the area were present but did not intervene to prevent the killing.

Speaking on Saturday afternoon, the IDPs spokesperson added the regular forces had been withdrawn after the killing.

Abu Sharati also stressed that what was happened in Deleij could be repeated in two other camps in North Darfur.

According the spokesperson, the Sudanese authorities already visited Al-Maliha and Kassap camps today and threatened to arrest tomorrow those who refuse the voter registration operation.

"Today they already arrested seven local leaders (Mashaikh) from Kassap camp," he further said.

Sudan launched a one month voter registration operation inside and outside the country, ahead of general election scheduled to be held next April. The process is extended for one week during the next month.

    This stupid racist regime is playing with fire, how can they killed the innocent Sudanese in broad day light? A democracy carry out on duress and tanks without backing of people cannot sustain itself forever. My prayers and condelences are with innocent victims of Khartoum machination.

      the world stand still, and the empaire of evil continues with its agendas of killing innocents civilians. for how long are we stand a side and look at the NCP brutality?

      Martin Luther once said “He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”

      He who does not punish evil commands it to be done.
      long live people of Darfur and death to evil and its perpetraters.

      thank you

      They are killed because of the stupid and unscrupulous US Special Envoy Gration who put his hand on the hands of the genocide regime and attending their registration rallies at their party headquarters then applauding them that the registrations for elections is going fine. Scot Ben Gration doesn’t know that this regime when they host you in their homes then you became one of them and that you support them on their heinous attitudes.
      The killing of these innocents civilians is a responsibility of US administration who sent a dead man to save the rest survived of Darfur people. Its very shameful and sad as well to see the superpower country like America jeopardizing with the lives of the innocent civilians for the interests of itself. People of Darfur need security in the first place not food. what is the use of eating food while you are going to be killed after one just finished eating his meal?
      When the people in the world follow the trips of US Special Envoy to Sudan they expect that he is doing something but unfortunately, the guy is doing business selling people of Darfur and the South of Sudan., what a sad world in which we are living?

      This act from NCP is terrorism method of killing and it a big shame to Bashir government to kill the people who will vote him and a shame to UN peacekeepers also to kept silence without protecting IDPs from aggressive terrorist’s community. I wish international community will protect the right of IDPS at this moment since Sudan NCP is insisting killing them and I don’t believe if election will be fair and free according to this act.

        Khartoum regime and the U.S Presidential envoy Scott Gration ,should be held accountable for these lost lives, as well as any lives that might be spilled by the regime and it’s militias as a result of carrying out, the coercive registration process. The U.S envoy who blinded to achieve personal triumph a long with narrow interests of greedy powers, had been, since his appointment, opening the appetite of Khartoum’s regime to continue the genocide by pushing for adapting soft stands towards Khartoum and making his untimely statements, while people are dying; he also tasked with the role of co-coordinating the work of Khartoum’s lobbyists in U.S .I want to tell the honorable envoy one thing, and that is( the struggle for freedom, never fails, the people of Darfur whom you see valueless and cheep objects, one day they will be free nation, and believe me, they will go looking for Gration where ever he went).Envoy or not envoy, being accessory to genocide tantamount to committing it.

    The people of Sudan and Darfur in particular have to come to the realization that no other alternative to re-gain their lost freedom, stability, security and peace without uniting their forces and re-inforce their capabilities to confront the harsh reality: fighting to death.

    This is bulshit news, I do our bros Darfurian people who are Khartuom reacted, sa their brothers are being killed liked this. In reality, do Khartuom Government (NCP) think that those whom they killed will support them. Not at all,

    Dear Bros Darfurian, Don’t accepted their Vote even though if they killed Thousand people. however, to the leaders who have been arested because they didn’t support Bashir, Stick!!!!!, don’t changed your mind. Still supported Al-Nur though he is in Franch, he is spreading your Voices.

    About Minawi, he was broke out so that he should be employed ( to get money) but not a Darfurian freedom. Analogously, We need somebody liked John Garang who fought for freedom and not beacuse to be employed or to be a presdent.

    Furthermore, Looked what the NCP are doing in South Sudan, they have sent people to buy registration clips by $500. For this, anybody found buying a ticket will killed and not just be arested. if anybody need to die for bribe, let them come and thanks

    NCP policy of kill to win the force confident from people is a real dilema that should be looked at by these Darfurian who are so thick headed stick to NCP in Khartoum singing for money and not the lives of innocent Darfurian who are dying in every single minutes in Darfur.

    I was dismay to see them shanting Allah Wakbar, Bashir and NCP for presidency on Sudan Islamized Television yesterday. using millions of sudanese public funds to ferry thousand of people to Hajj when innocent Darfurian are dying of hunger and disease without food and medicine to treat.

    AAAHHAAA Mini Arka Minawi was also there having really turned to be Mini as his name suggest.

    what a big shame of Omar haksan min Bashir and the Darfurian who have turned to be predators and scavangers of NCP leftovers in Khartoum.

    Your days with your master Omar El Bashir are numbered.

    OOOOH, if you look at the pictures there, it tells you what those of Dr. Lam and his so called SPLM-DC are preaching, they have done it and are planning more to happen to innocent people in Malakal.
