“We see what is still happening on a daily basis in Darfur, Nuba Mountains, The Blue Nile, Khartoum and the rest of the republic, as the abhorrent and flagrant actions of a criminal regime. It is a moral imperative to collaborate and intensify efforts and make a priority to stop these violations, as well as increasing international cooperation to enforce charges and judgments against the Sudanese regime.”

This paragraph of the memorandum that delivered to the presidency of the Norwegian Parliament, Amnesty International Norway, and Deputy Foreign Minister of Norway, Hans Brattskar in November 15, 2014 after a protest stand organized by the Sudanese Human Rights Activists – Norway, demanding an impartial and comprehensive investigation on mass rape accusations in Tabet.

Human Rights Watch’s report which published on February 11, 2015, documents that at least 221 women and girls have been raped in Tabit. in addition to arbitrary arrests, torture and looting.

Recommendations contained in the report does not have a significant value to the Sudanese government. They stubbornly refuse recognition of what happened in Tabet.

The report increases the international community’s already difficult task and puts enormous moral imperative and responsibility to develop new effective methods to deal with the Sudanese regime which proves every day its involvement in further human rights violations.

We strongly support the two demands mentors to the UN Security Council:

Demand in a resolution that Sudan allow UNAMID immediate and unrestricted access to Tabit, including to establish a permanent presence such as an operating base and;

Impose travel bans and asset freezes on individuals responsible for the attacks on Tabit.
