Press release

A joint letter to Permanent Representatives of Members and Observer States of the UN Human Rights Council regarding the gravely deteriorating human rights and humanitarian situation in Sudan.

[EXCERPT]

Excellency,
We write to share our serious concerns about the deteriorating human rights situation in Sudan, marked by harsh political repression and continued impunity. There is increasing evidence that Sudanese security forces are committing war crimes in the conflict areas of Darfur, Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile states. We call on your delegation to support the development and adoption of a strong and responsive resolution on Sudan under agenda Item 4 at the 30th session of the Human Rights Council in September.
