Darfur: Disappearance of IDP from Kalma Camp

On 21 April 2005, officers from military intelligence arrested Khayri Ali Musa Ali, (16 yrs), belonging to the Dajo tribe from Kalma Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp in Nyala. Mr. Khayri was arrested along with another man, Abdel Raheam Degais from his former workplace, a farm, 2km of Kalma IDP Camp.

The IDPs were taken into military custody in Nyala. On 22 April 2005, Mr Abdel Raheam was released after being questioned by military officers about his relationship with Khayri and possession of arms and ammunitions.

Following Mr. Abdel’s release, Mr. Khayri’s brother, Ahmed Ali Musa went to visit him at the military detention centre however, military officers informed him that they had not arrested Mr. Khayri and did not know his whereabouts.

Mr. Khayri’s brother Ahmed Ali Musa has searched all the military and police custody centres in Nyala but Mr. Kharyri’s whereabouts is unknown.

SOAT is gravely concerned about the safety of Khayri Ali Musa Ali and is calling on the GoS to immediately investigate the incident, make known his whereabouts and give assurances that he will not be tortured or ill treated. SOAT has documented a clear pattern of the targeting and torture and extrajudicial killing of civilians accused or perceived to be in support of supporting of rebel opposition group by government forces.

SOAT strongly condemns the continued attacks and terrorisation of civilians in Darfur and urges the Government of Sudan to:

Take all necessary measures to ensure the physical and psychological integrity of Khayri Ali Musa Ali;

Allow Khayri Ali Musa Ali immediate and unrestricted access to their family and any medical treatment that they may need;

Ensure that Khayri Ali Musa has access to legal advice;

Order the immediate release of Khayri Ali Musa Ali in the absence of valid legal charges, or if legitimate charges exist, bring them before an impartial tribunal and guarantee procedural rights at all times;

Immediately cease all attacks on civilians and adhere to commitments under the ceasefire agreement;

Guarantee the respect of human rights and fundamental freedoms, including freedom of association throughout Sudan in accordance with national laws and international human rights standards;

The above recommendations should be sent in appeals to the following
