The police, UNAMID and Mohamed Dahap the commissioner were all informed but no action was taken.

Then a group of soldiers from the Justice and equality movement (JEM), which lately signed a peace agreement with the government, intervened and insisted that the hostages must be released without the IDPs paying any ransom or the kidnappers shall bear the consequences.

TABIT Village, North Darfur

TABIT village has become like an open prison, after the government replaced the forces which committed the latest rape violation in TABIT with a new one. The new commander in chief forced the villagers to take an oath not to disclose any information about the latest rape, and threatened the villagers that if anyone was found to be giving information about the rape they will bear the consequences of their action. He also established check points on the four corners of the village and anyone who is entering or leaving the village will be searched and questioned.
