The government of the military coup of Sudan, is still committing widespread human rights violations against civilians, especially against the destitute displaced persons, in all parts of Darfur, through its official forces or militias. The situation in Darfur is still suffering from unprecedented insecurity, in light of the continuation of human rights violations in all its forms, without the authorities moving to arrest the perpetrators and bring them to justice, and this further encourages criminals to continue committing violations and horrific crimes.
DNMD notes that Darfur is still suffering from an unprecedented insecurity, in light of the continuation of human rights violations in all its forms. The victim Halima, like hundreds of women in Darfur, needed to be provided with a secure life, which the core basis of their Right to life which is being brutally wasted unjustifiably. These women are able to produce with their own power and contribute greatly to the economy at both the individual and group levels. Halima like thousands of women in Darfur whom had lost their lives due to the fragility of the security situation in Darfur.
DNMD greatly condemns the Malicious attacks that leads to the death of innocent citizens such as Halima leaving behind innocent dependents to suffer the consequences immensely;
DNMD calls upon;
- The Government of West Darfur to take full responsibility and bring the perpetrators to justice.
- The coup government of Sudan to take responsibilities and accountability for the continuous loss of innocent citizens.
- The Juba Peace Agreement Group to provide accountability for the terms of the agreement.
- The international community and the UN, experts to urge authorities to ensure immediate accountability for ongoing human rights violations and stop the use of killing against civilians in the Darfur region.
