Human Rights Watch calls on the UN Commission on Human Rights to show leadership in the Sudan: The U.N. Commission on Human Rights must reinstate human rights monitoring in Sudan and strongly condemn abuses in Darfur, a western region of Sudan, where one of the world’s worst human rights and humanitarian crises is unfolding, Human Rights Watch said today. The Commission, which on Thursday is scheduled to vote on a resolution on Sudan, should unequivocally condemn crimes against humanity and other abuses committed by government forces and allied militias in Darfur and reinstate the mandate for the special rapporteur for human rights in Sudan under item 9 of the agenda, Human Rights Watch said. Last year the Commission ended a 10-year monitoring mandate in Sudan because it appeared that the 20-year civil war in the southern part of the country would be settled.
