South Darfur-Otash IDP camp

On the 6th Feb 2015 a group of Janjaweed militia men on two 4x4 vehicles drove into the camp and terrorised the IDPs. UNAMID was informed and they managed to get the Janjaweed out of the camp.

SUDO UK calls on the Government to disband the Rapid Support Forces as well as the Janjaweed as these are consistently committing human rights abuses in Darfur. All those individuals or groups responsible for committing human rights violations must be brought to justice.

SUDO UK calls on UNAMID to take strong action in order to fulfil its mandate, including its obligation to “prevent attacks against civilians, within its capability and areas of deployment, without prejudice to the responsibility of the Government of the Sudan”, and the requirement “to investigate and hold accountable those who are responsible, and promote efforts to disarm the Janjaweed and other militias”.
