Subject: Please Lead to End Impunity in Sudan
The Obama Administration must lead in efforts to end impunity in Sudan.
The Khartoum regime, led by indicted war criminal President Omar al-Bashir, latest actions have included the population-clearing invasion of Abyei, war crimes in the Nuba Mountains, ongoing attacks against civilians in Darfur, and most recently an assault on the Blue Nile border state.
The United States must act boldly and lead in the efforts to bring about the immediate protection of civilians and a comprehensive approach to bringing justice and peace to all marginalized areas in Sudan.
Key to these efforts must be supporting justice:
1. Increased international coordination around apprehension of International Criminal Court (ICC) suspects.
2. Increased international support for further ICC cases targeting those responsible for war crimes in Abyei and the Nuba Mountain
(These two recommendations come from the Enough Project's policy essay, WHAT THE ARAB SPRING MEANS FOR SUDAN)
