Urgent Action : 60 Nuba Civilians detained in Dillanj

Published on November 27, 2012 in news

The Sudanese security in South Kordofan/Nuba mountains state, started arrest campaign against Nuba peoples men and women in the past few weeks. The latest campaign in Dillanj, the second biggest city, in Nuba mountains after the capital Kadugli. On November 18th , 60 Nuba peoples were arbitrary arrested among them men and women, they were all taken to the 14th division of the Sudanese armed forces in Dillanj, but their families are not allowed to visit them. The 60 men and women are from Oncho tribe, reside near of Dillanj.

The situation in Dillanj is similar to Kadugli and even worse as peoples inside the city are living under siege and prohibited from leaving the city , even when the fighting between the government forces and the SPLM/N reach to the town. No food supplies allowed to the city. the tribal leaders in the villages near Dillanj are living under constant threats, whenever their villages attacked by SPLM/N, as the security take the tribal leaders for investigations and detain them some times. There is report of forced disappearances during the past 4-6 weeks in Nuba mountains and especially in the Oncho area near Dallinj, group arrests and forced disappearances and individual arrest are taking place which is add to the grave violations already committed by the Sudanese government in Nuba mountains.

Arry Organization is extremely concerned about the wellbeing of the detainees, as they are in danger of torture and ill treatment, Arry also concerned about the targeting of the Nuba peoples in Dillanj city and condom the arbitrary arrest and forced disappearances of civilians by the government armed forces and security. Arry Organization calls on the Sudanese government to immediately release all the detainees in Nuba Mountains, or charge them, and we call on the government  to allow them family visits and access to lawyers.
