Ministry of Foreign Affairs: The HRW report is an attempt to reproduce an issue closed after its incredibility and illog

  • Ministry of Foreign Affairs: The HRW report is an attempt to reproduce an issue closed after its incredibility and illog

    Khartoum, Feb. 13 (SUNA) - The official spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Yusuf Kurdufani, has reaffirmed that a report by Human Rights Watch (HRW) on claims of mass rape in Tabit village, north Darfur state, is but an attempt to reproduce an issue long closed after the world was convinced about its the incredibility and illogicality of the claims of mass rape. Ambassador Kurdufani in a statement to the Sudan News Agency has expressed regret and denunciation of the organization for adopting such allegations based on report by Radio Dabanga, which is known to be the mouthpiece of the Darfuri armed rebel movements. The spokesperson, in response to question by the Sudan News Agency, has refuted the allegations of mass rape of 200 women in Tabit village saying such claims go contrary to the logic of things and also contradicts the customs and traditions of the local population. He explained that Tabit is a small village with a limited population, thus it could not be conceived how such mass rape takes place during a single night while the population show no reaction or even provoke them. He further pointed to the fact that most of the members of the army unit based near Tabit are married to women from the same village or surrounding villages and besides, they live with their families inside the village. He pinpointed that UN-AU peace keeping mission in Darfur (UNAMID) had issued a statement at the time of the allegations saying there was no proof of any mass rape in the village. The spokesman said Tabit happened to be one of the model villages where a number of development projects, funded by the government of State of Qatar, have been established in a way that would enable the area to receive the internally displaced persons who voluntarily return to their home villages from the IDP camps, following the signing of the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur (DDPD) that has practically put an end to the war in Darfur. He argued that by making such allegations, the rebel movements wanted to create an impression that the situation was still unstable in the region and that therefore it was not yet time for the IDP to return to their villages from the IDP camps. He said this shows that vested political agenda are behind the allegations of mass rape. He said on the other hand the attempt to reproduce this question was only an attempt to say there was still need for the UNAMID in the Sudan and thus abort all Sudanese efforts that are aimed at reaching an agreement on the phasing out of these forces from the region of Darfur and the Sudan. The spokesman reaffirmed that the allegations of mass rape in Tabit is a file that has been closed after a number of countries and international institutions have become convinced that these allegations are spurred by vested political agenda and that they are baseless and unfounded.
