Sudan arrests 30 civilians in South Darfur after recent attack


May 15, 2012 (KHARTOUM) — The Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) accused the Sudanese security service of arresting 30 people in Gueraida a South Darfur area attacked recently by Sudan Liberation Movement (SLM) rebel fighters.

A joint rebel force of Abdel Wahid al-Nur’s and Minni Minnawi’s SLM factions attacked Gueraida on 8 May before evacuating the area. The Sudanese army said its troops defeated the rebels but the latter said they pulled out.

Gibreel Adam Bilal, JEM spokesperson said in a statement released Monday that security agents in Gueraida arrested 30 civilians including elders, political and human rights activists as well as women.

He further said three among the detained civilians, two men and a woman from South Sudan whose family settled in the area over 60 years ago, were transferred to an unknown destination.

The rebel official further urged the hybrid peacekeeping operation, UNAMID, to pressure the Sudanese authorities to release them.

The three non-signatory rebel groups, JEM and the two SLM factions, formed last November an alliance pact with the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North. Accordingly, the four rebel groups said aiming to topple Bashir’s regime.

Tijani Sissi, head of the Darfur Regional Authority told reporters on Monday following a meeting with the Sudanese president that the recent attacks by the rebel groups seek to undermine the implementation of peace in the region.

He further said that Bashir pledged to provide the money his authority needs to enforce the peace deal. The president also promised to protect civilians who return to their villages in Darfur, Sissi added.

The governor of North Darfur, Osman Kibir, on Sunday said they observed that rebels riding on over 40 vehicle arrived recently in the region from South Sudan to carry out attacks in the region.

    The chief of the Liberation and Justice Movement (LJM) in Darfur, Dr Al-Tijani Sisi has confirmed that a final draft for a peace agreement on Darfur has been completed. He described the peace agreement document as “comprehensive” and said it would be open to all Darfur movements to join.

  • 15 May 2012 11:19, by Mahmoud mohamed Abdalla

    (Dr. Sisi) The document focused on dealing with the essential issues or the roots of the problem (in Darfur), especially on the dossier of justice and reconciliations. The Abuja Agreement (signed by a Darfur movement (Mani Arkoi Minawi`s SLM) with the Sudanese Government years ago) did not include a single line on attainment of justice in Darfur.

  • 15 May 2012 11:20, by Mahmoud mohamed Abdalla

    But we took into consideration that justice is one of the most important premises for a comprehensive and just solution to the Darfur problem. Consequently we added a special dossier on justice and on reconciliations in the negotiations.

          All Muslims men and women are practicing unacceptable believed that (it’s unknown who will give birth to baby Muhammad either a man or a woman) in this act is what people called homosexual? We have never heard any like this around the world except this horrid culture of Arabism
          Shame is all ways come from Arabs culture?

          • 15 May 2012 17:17, by Dinkawarrior

            read the history of Darfur.
            Darfur’s population in Sudan is more than 10 millions.
            WE were one big unied family pliticians have succeeded in our division and your SPLA also refueled the misunderstanding among Darfurians. ISRAEL the supporter of AbdulWahid NUR has participated in the genocides committed among Arabs 2003/4 . ISRAEL is training many FUR DARFURIANS in ISRAEL TO FIGHT US.

          • 15 May 2012 19:25, by Mahmoud mohamed Abdalla


            We are well prepared. In 2004 the Darfurian rebels tried ISRAELIAN chemical weapon called FUNK on us. But we defeated them andcaptured this weapon.
            pls be professional and don’t insult our religion and we will not insult you and your peoples. let’s be professionals and objective as to principles of HRD and HRM.
            EUROPEANS were in many wars but now they are united.
