Home Office sending Darfur survivors to face torture in Khartoum

26 March 2007. The Home Office is working closely with the Sudanese authorities to send Darfuri asylum seekers to Khartoum. A concerted round-up now appears to be underway. The Home Office continues to insist that Khartoum is not dangerous for Darfuris, despite all the evidence to the contrary (including that contained in Aegis' 2006 report 'Khartoum: Safe as Ghost Houses'), despite UNHCR recommendations against deportation and despite serious concerns expressed in the House of Lords. .

Darfur: a path to peace and justice

26 February 2007.   The International Criminal Court (ICC) will on 27 February 2007 issue its first indictments for war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur. The news is welcome as far as it goes: but unless the international community changes course in the next few months, the true poverty of the world's response to the mass killings in the western Sudanese province will be exposed and the ICC will be undermined.

Aegis spotlights UK Darfur deportation disgrace

Aegis spotlights UK Darfur deportation disgrace

21 January 2007. The Aegis Trust yesterday put the spotlight firmly back on the Home Office's disgraceful treatment of Darfuri survivors claiming asylum in the UK. Alnour Abdelrahman Yousif Fasher, grandson of the Sultan of the Zaghawa tribe (one of three major African tribes in Darfur), and formerly a fighter with the African rebel group the Justice and Equality Movement, was due to be deported to Khartoum today. The Home Office, which fast-tracked his case, had astonishingly refused to accept that he was politically active. If Alnour had been removed to Khartoum, he would have faced a high risk of imprisonment and torture, possibly death.
