Sudan: UN and AU must prioritize protection of civilians in Darfur

Index Number: AFR 54/2351/2020

Amnesty International calls on the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to authorize a new Special Political Mission (SPM) with a mandate to protect civilians in Darfur and to monitor and report on human rights throughout Sudan. The organization also calls on the UNSC and the African Union Peace and Security Council (AUPSC) to extend the mandate of the AU-UN Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID) for an additional year until the SPM is fully staffed and operationalized.
