UN says justice is a show in darfur

07 November 2005

On October 22, Sima Samar, UN Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Darfur, criticized the court that Sudan established on June 15 to judge the crimes committed in Darfur [see IJT-28] for not doing its job, according to Reuters. Samar pointed out that the special national court was essentially focusing on looting cases, but "unfortunately it was not really the crimes committed during the war in Darfur". She added that the Sudanese court chief justice had told her that only three cases had been heard out of the 72,000 cases concerning Darfur.
