UNAMID Welcomes Presidential Decree Pardoning Members Of Darfuri Armed Movements

KHARTOUM, Sudan, March 15, 2017/APO/ --

The African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID) welcomes the issuance on 8 March of a Presidential decree lifting death sentences from 66 members of Darfuri armed movements and pardoning 193 others.

This positive development comes in the context of ongoing mediation by the African Union High-Level Implementation Panel, UNAMID and other stakeholders as set out in the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur and adopted by relevant UN Security Council (UNSC) and African Union Peace and Security Council resolutions.

“The Mission is heartened by this significant step forward which, it is hoped, will additionally reinforce the momentum of the ongoing peace process and national reconciliation,” said UNAMID’s Acting Joint Special Representative, Jeremiah N. Mamabolo. “All parties to the conflict should capitalize on this gesture with a view to end hostilities and bring about a permanent and lasting peace for the people of Darfur. UNAMID reiterates its commitment to do everything within its capacity to achieve this end,” he concluded.
