Forced Relocations By Khartoum Violate International Law
Human Rights Watch
31 October 2007

This report by Human Rights Watch examines a new serious violation of international law in Darfur. The Sudanese government has recently forced relocation of civilians in South Darfur IDP camps to unsecure areas where there is almost no access to humanitarian relief. HRW fears this ay be the prelude to new attempts to dismantle certain civilian camps. The report also calls for the Government of National Unity to cease all action related to forced relocations nd allow the African Union Mission in Sudan, the United Nations Mission in Sudan, and humanitarian agencies access to all displaced persons, whether they reside in camps or other locations in Darfur.
