Chad: Open letter to all members of the Security Council. Protection of civilians in eastern Chad: Security Council must "remain actively seized of the matter"

, Index number: AFR 20/005/2011

In this open letter Amnesty International expresses its concern that more than 260,000 refugees from Darfur, 160,000 internally displaced Chadians and the local population remain at risk in eastern Chad after the withdrawal of the United Nations Mission in the Central African Republic and Chad (MINURCAT) at the end of 2010. Consequently, the organization calls on the Security Council to take effective steps to ensure that the safety of refugees, IDPs and all civilians living in eastern Chad remains an active part of its agenda.
