Sudan: Letter to the permanent representatives of member and observer states to the UN Human Rights Council regarding the renewal and strengthening of the special procedure mandate on the situation of human rights in Sudan
Violations of human rights and international humanitarian law perpetrated by government forces and allied militias against civilians continued throughout the year in Darfur, Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile, and spread to Northern Kordofan. In this open letter, non-governmental organizations urge the delegation to ensure that serious and widespread violations of international human rights and humanitarian law in Sudan are adequately addressed by the Human Rights Council during its 24th session.
