98 missing in the April 15 war in Sudan!
The managers of the “Missing Persons of the April 15th War in Sudan” page on Facebook – established to coordinate voluntary search efforts for the missing – told Al Arabiya.net. The data of the missing persons that reached them exceeds 98 missing persons, but these numbers do not reflect the reality on the ground, as the reporting of missing persons is still “extremely weak” for several factors, including the lack of safe roads, fluctuations in electricity and the Internet. They confirmed the return of 14 missing persons to their families, while the death of three persons was confirmed.
As for lawyer Othman Al-Basri, advisor to the families of the missing persons who dispersed the sit-in, and a member of the investigation committee for the disappearance of persons that was set up by the Attorney General in Sudan four years ago, he told Al-Arabiya.net that they moved quickly to contribute to the efforts to search for the missing, after the outbreak of the military conflict between the army and the Rapid Support Forces.
Al-Basri said that the committee had received dozens of bulletins of the missing, and that the vast majority of the cases of missing persons that reached them occurred in the first three days of the start of the fighting, and that the missing were distributed geographically in the three cities “Khartoum, Khartoum North, and Omdurman.” Al-Basri revealed that doctors were the most groups in the initial lists of the missing. which exceeded 100 are missing.
Al-Basri stated that the absence of the police and the prosecution, and the spread of geographically unknown bodies in the sprawling capital, made it difficult to search for the missing, and the worst thing is that some of these bodies began to decompose, and others were buried without being inferred or identifying the deceased person.
Al-Basri added that they are in the process of collecting information and counting the numbers accurately in order to issue a final list of those missing from the April war in Sudan, in preparation for addressing the Special Committee on Enforced Disappearances of the Human Rights Council and the United Nations. The International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance, which Sudan signed and ratified in February 2021, states that “there are no exceptional circumstances whatsoever to justify enforced disappearance, even if there is war, threat of war, internal political instability or any other situation.” other public emergencies. In addition, revealing the fate of the missing is considered a natural right guaranteed by humanity, citizenship and morals.
Al-Basri demanded strong pressure on the army, rapid support and the rest of the security and military agencies to reveal any cases of arrest or detention inside their headquarters, because it is considered a crime of “enforced disappearance,” stressing the monitoring of random arrests of innocent people on suspicion of being loyal to one of the two conflicting parties.
