Sudan: Oral statement by Amnesty International: Protection of Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons
Oral statement on the protection displaced persons in Sudan before the ACHPR, 29 November 2004. In this statement, Amnesty International expresses its concern that more than 1.5 million people are internally displaced within the region, mostly in camps and settlements inside and on the edge of towns, while more than 200,000 people have fled from Darfur to neighbouring Chad. The people have fled because the government, which should have been protecting them, supported and funded militias to drive them out of their lands.
