November 14, 2014: NERTITI: Janjaweed attacks abduct and rape farmers with impunity

NERTITI Central Darfur: Members of the Janjaweed militia attacked the farms of the IDPs killing two persons. The Janjaweed also raped a minor, and kidnapped seven persons - two of them females. Those who were kidnapped are:

1. Mohammed Adam Bakhiet

2. Eisa Abakr Ishag

3. Osman Sharfedin

4. Ibrahim Haroon.

(The two female names and the seventh person are not now known)

Some of the IDPs took the two dead bodies to the house of the commissioner of the locality. They were received by the commissioner and he went with them to the police where they filed a case. The commissioner directed the police to find the perpetrators but nothing has happened yet.

On the same day, some Janjaweed members killed the IDP Ibrahim Saeed Yahya in his farm in KAJA, East JABAL MARRA. Other IDPs tried to follow them but they were fired at. The IDPs took the dead body to the police and reported the case without any further response from the authorities.

SUDO UK calls on the Government to disband the Janjaweed and all other pro-government militias, and bring those individuals or groups responsible for committing human rights violations 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”
