    (New York, August 27, 2004) — The government of Sudan is permitting abusive Janjaweed militia to maintain at least 16 camps in the western region of Darfur, Human Rights Watch said today. The U.N. Security Council set a deadline of Monday, August 30, for Khartoum to comply with its commitments to stop atrocities in Darfur.

    Despite repeated government pledges to neutralize and disarm the Janjaweed, Human Rights Watch investigators in West and North Darfur were able to gather information on the militias’ extensive network of bases. Human Rights Watch said the U.N. Security Council must impose sanctions on Sudanese government officials for their failure to disarm and neutralize the Janjaweed militia, including those in the militia camps.

    The Human Rights Watch mission to investigate recent abuses returned from Darfur on August 19.

    “Throughout the time Khartoum was supposedly reining in the Janjaweed, these camps have been operating in plain sight,” said Peter Takirambudde, executive director of the Africa division of Human Rights Watch. “These Janjaweed camps should be immediately investigated by the U.N. and the African Union ceasefire monitors, then disbanded.”

    Human Rights Watch said that any militia members found in the camps should be investigated for war crimes, crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing.

    Five of the 16 camps, according to witnesses, are camps the Janjaweed share with the Sudanese government army. Even more ominous, the Sudanese government has incorporated members of the Janjaweed militia and its leaders into the police and the Sudanese army, including Islamist militia the Popular Defense Forces (PDF), which is under army jurisdiction.

    The Sudanese government has disclaimed responsibility for arming the Arab nomadic ethnic groups in Darfur to fight against the two largely African rebel groups there. Khartoum denies responsibility for the actions of these ethnic militias that are known by their victims as “Janjaweed.” As Human Rights Watch has documented thoroughly, the Sudanese government has armed, recruited and supported the Janjaweed militias that have participated with government forces and government aircraft in campaigns attacking civilians and villages in Darfur since early 2003. These attacks constitute crimes against humanity and “ethnic cleansing.”

    Human Rights Watch said the United States and other countries with satellite capacity should make available past and present satellite photographs of the locations of these Janjaweed camps to confirm their existence, and to search for other such militia installations.

    “If the United Nations is serious about seeing the Janjaweed disarmed, they’ve got to know where these militias are based,” said Takirambudde. “Janjaweed and government forces take over villages they’ve driven people out of and from those bases continue their looting and killing.”

    Human Rights Watch called on the U.N. Security Council to mandate the African Union to protect civilians in Darfur, consistent with the African Union Peace and Security Council’s July 27, 2004 Communiqué. The African Union has already fielded 100 ceasefire monitors pursuant to a ceasefire agreement signed in N’djamena, Chad on April 8 between the government and the two rebel groups, the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA) and the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM).

    Human Rights Watch said that, as a logical part of their duties under the ceasefire agreement of April 8, the African Union ceasefire monitors should list the names and ranks of all individuals in those camps, and catalogue the weapons and other war materiel such as vehicles. This should form the basis for verifying that none of the individuals listed participates in any government law enforcement or other job in the future, and that the weapons are not used again.

    Despite its many pledges to disarm the militia, the government has produced no list of Janjaweed militia who have been disarmed or serial numbers of confiscated weapons, for verification by the African Union ceasefire monitors or others, including U.N. officials.

    Human Rights Watch urged the U.N. Security Council, which on July 30 set a deadline of 30 days for the Sudanese government to comply with its commitments, to impose sanctions on government officials for failure to disarm and neutralize the Janjaweed militias.

    “The existence of these Janjaweed camps shows clearly that Khartoum is not at all serious about ending atrocities and providing security,” said Takirambudde. “The fact that there are still armed camps filled with killers terrorizing civilians in Darfur makes it impossible for people to go home.”

    In its Resolution 1556, article 6, the Security Council “demands that the Government of Sudan fulfill its commitments to disarm the Janjaweed militias and apprehend and bring to justice Janjaweed leaders and their associates who have incited and carried out human rights and international humanitarian law violations and other atrocities.” (U.N. Security Council Resolution 1556, July 30, 2004)

    “Real, targeted sanctions will bring home to Khartoum that the world will not let their ethnic cleansing in Darfur stand,” said Takirambudde.

    Human Rights Watch said that the possible sanctions for the Security Council to consider include a Security Council arms embargo on sale or trade of weapons to the Sudanese government and an embargo on all oil transactions with Sudan.

    The Sudanese government promised in four separate agreements outlined below in the past four months to “neutralize” and disarm the Janjaweed, but the Janjaweed camps described to Human Rights Watch apparently have not been touched. All were set up in the last 14 months since the armed conflict in Darfur began, the earliest in June 2003.

    The heavily-armed camps, as described by witnesses, include three that were allegedly opened as late as July 2004, after the July 3 date when Sudanese President Omar El Bashir promised U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan in a joint communiqué to “immediately start to disarm the Janjaweed and other armed outlaw groups.” These camps appear to have been established in the wake of the government offensive in South Darfur in June that violated the ceasefire agreement of April 8, 2004.

    Several of the Janjaweed bases are located within kilometers of internally displaced persons (IDP) camps, such as those at Masry, Kutum and Um Sayala in North Darfur, and near Nyala in South Darfur. The displaced in government IDP camps have been targeted by Janjaweed and government soldiers for further rape, robbery, extortion and killings, according to testimonies of displaced persons. Human Rights Watch said that measures under discussion for protection of civilians contemplate identifying “safe areas,” to be secured by Sudan police forces that include members of the Janjaweed militias who may have been responsible for crimes against humanity now redeployed to protect the same civilians they forcibly and violently displaced. Real protection of civilians can only occur when the Janjaweed—believed to number some 20,000— are placed under guard instead of being used to guard more than one million internally displaced persons in 140 sites registered by the World Food Program.

    Human Rights Watch called for restitution for the victims of the Janjaweed-Sudanese government attacks and looting. A sequential study of satellite images should establish movements in and out of the camps of vast quantities of stolen property, including furniture, vehicles and livestock.

    “The livestock is many Darfurians’ livelihood,” said Takirambudde. “The theft and destruction of homes, furniture, vehicles, crops and livestock is absolutely devastating.”

    Human Rights Watch said that no militia, army or police force has any business possessing, trading or warehousing such goods. All items in each Janjaweed camp should be inventoried and preserved under neutral control, for eventual return to their rightful owners.

    The way to stop this shit is to arm the Sudanese that are getting fucked over. Trying to disarm the Janjaweed is a waste of time. They are like all other cowards, brave when their victims are unarmed, but they run like little girls when the other side has firearms.

    Look at Rwanda---the Hutus were armed with cheap-ass Chinese machetes and shovels. They killed a million Tutsis in about three months, hacking them to pieces. If there was a shotgun or a rifle in every Rwandan household, do you suppose those genocidal motherfuckers could have pulled this shit off? NO WAY.

    Same thing in Darfur. If the southern Sudanese were armed, this shit would NOT be occurring. Unfortunately, the southern Sudanese are too poor to afford weapons. I think the U.S. ought to air-drop them a couple of hundred thousand single-shot shotguns and ammunition. Presto---the Janjaweed would disappear in a week.

    ^^I think maybe we could help "liberate" these people in the same way that we've done in Iraq. I mean they seem to be victim of as much tryanny as most of Iraq during Sadaam's regime. I wonder what will happen?

    nothing will happen.
    sudan, along with the congo, where possibly 5 million people have been hacked up, is a
    good example of how phoney US rhetoric is on human rights.

    BUT we didn't go to Iraq for oil, right? we went to liberate the iraqi people.. I've been watching Fox five for like 16 months straight, talking about "operation: iraqi freedom" not operation: iraqi free-oil. Give me a legitimate reason why we are not in Sudan right now.

    because genocide is a non issue in US foreign policy.
    poor people getting killed has never been a concern.
    now if sudan has some powerful business leaders that
    start getting picked off and upsetting the larger business
    community..then you might see something done.

    Thats EXACTLY my point, the current administration's exploitation of our foreign policy is hypocritical and dangerous for America. How can we take lofty ideals of "liberation" and the spreading of freedom and use it for justification to wage wars largely based on economic positioning while ignoring large portions of the world who are dearly in need of our support. Countries, like Sudan, which harbor individuals who TERRORIZE their citizens with Genocide and Slavery. I mean c'mon, does this not outrage anyone else?
