Where Are They Now?: Ahmed Haroun
Ahmed Haroun was, at one point, officially titled “Minister of State for Humanitarian Affairs” in Sudan.
Need that one more time?
Minister of State for Humanitarian Affairs.
Haroun is one of Bashir’s cronies, and one of the key players in the Janjaweed militia. The International Criminal Court has indicted Haroun for crimes against humanity and war crimes including rape, murder, torture, persecution — and many more. In 2007, he lead an investigation into human rights abuses in Darfur – and nothing ever came of it. Perhaps he was too busy with his raping and pillaging to worry about something as trivial as human dignity.
Haroun has said his actions are just part of his professional job.
Where is Ahmed Haroun now? In 2011, he was re-elected governor of Sudan’s South Kordofon. Re-elected? What? Oh, we get it – the election must have had a few things in common with that “investigation.”
