    Khartoum, Sudan – (African Boulevard News) – The United Nations (UN) rights body has approved tighter scrutiny of abuses in Sudan. The move, which is aimed at holding accountable, those responsible for human rights violations, was made at the recent session of the Human Rights Council.

    During the opening speech of the session, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Türk accused both sides of violating international humanitarian law. He cited acts such as enslavement, sexual violence, and other forms of abuse as the basis for the resolution. Türk emphasized that all perpetrators of atrocities must be held accountable.

    The resolution approved by the council established a team of experts to investigate and collect evidence of violations in Sudan. Also, the resolution ensures that the team will have unrestricted access to all parts of the country.

    The resolution comes at a time when the Sudanese government is looking to rebuild its image following years of civil strife. It is also a crucial move in the ongoing pursuit for justice for the victims of the Darfur conflict, which saw over 300,000 people lose their lives.

    The Darfur conflict began in 2003 as rebels took up arms against the government. The conflict was complicated by factors such as tribalism, religion, and economic marginalization. The conflict led to the formation of the Janjaweed militia, which was responsible for numerous atrocities.

    In 2005, the International Criminal Court (ICC) launched an investigation into the conflict, leading to further sanctions against senior Sudanese officials. However, the ICC was criticized for its slow response to the conflict.

    The UN rights body’s resolution is a crucial step towards ensuring that those responsible for atrocities in Sudan are held accountable. It also serves as a warning to other countries that human rights violators will be held accountable.

    Sudan’s government has welcomed the resolution, with the Foreign Ministry stating that they are committed to working with the UN team. The ministry also expressed hope that the resolution would lead to the lifting of sanctions imposed on Sudan.

    The UN rights body’s resolution is a crucial move in the ongoing pursuit for justice in Sudan. It sends a strong message to human rights violators that their actions will not go unpunished. The resolution is an opportunity for Sudan to move past its troubled past and work towards a more just and peaceful future.
