UN rights experts call for probe into Sudan ‘abyss’

AFP, Geneva

UN rights experts called yesterday for the Human Rights Council to set up a probe into possible violations committed by Sudan’s security forces against “peaceful protesters”.

Sudan is “sliding into a human rights abyss,” a group of five United Nations experts said in a joint statement.

A military council has led Sudan since it toppled autocratic president Omar al-Bashir on April 11 after months of nationwide protests against his iron-fisted rule of three decades.

Following Bashir’s removal, protesters camped outside military headquarters in Khartoum for weeks to demand civilian rule, before security and paramilitary forces dispersed them in a June 3 crackdown that killed dozens.

The experts called for an “independent investigation” to be set up by the UN Human Rights Council, which opens a new session on June 24.
