Sudan: Increasing numbers of Human Rights Violations in Darfur
Again and again, the truth of the sinister acts of government agencies are in effect. Again, the ones whose know in the close proximity of power in Khartoum is showing their evil face. This time the United Nations Report on UNAMID, which was published n the 16th June 2019 are proving the acts of the Rapid Support Force or Janjaweed in Darfur. Where they are a key initiator in violent behaviour.
This is neither shocking nor unprecedented. This is more of the same and its sad state of affairs, as the RSF and others to show the power of the state, they are using arms to control and kill civilians instead of securing their territory. That is what the state does at this point.
“Human rights violations and abuses continue to occur across Darfur, with a significant increase in the number of documented cases, including killings, assault, abduction and conflict-related sexual violence, in the Jebel Marra area during the reporting period. Internally displaced persons, especially women and children, are the most vulnerable to attacks, mainly perpetrated by government and affiliated forces, including the Rapid Support Forces. There is insufficient action to address violations and abuses, in a context where State authorities are absent in several localities and judicial institutions are weak. As a result, internally displaced persons and local populations have expressed a lack of trust in law enforcement bodies. There has been an upward trend in human rights violations in the Nertiti area, where conflict-related sexual violence and sexual and gender-based violence cases are prevalent, and in the Guldo and Golo areas, where the Rapid Support Forces reportedly burned down dozens of villages in 2018, displacing hundreds of civilians to Kass and Nyala. Human rights violations and abuses also persist in some localities with no active military operations, including in areas from which UNAMID has withdrawn, such as Jebel Moon, West Darfur, where an attack by armed militia in January 2019 resulted in the killing and displacement of civilians” (Special report of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission and the Secretary-General of the United Nations on the strategic assessment of the African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur – P: 6, 30.05.2019).
We are seeing the report and the news. It is dire and shows what sort actions been made by the ones in the rising TMC in Khartoum. The henchmen has been active in Darfur and now has done the same in Khartoum to knock out the Sit-In at the HQ there. Clearly, the same tactics and same acts against humanity. All for the spoils of own power. Peace.
