Joint Letter to UN Secretary General on Haroun Appointment in Sudan

September 2007

The executive directors of eight leading human rights organizations sent a letter to UN Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon calling on him to make justice for victims and accountability for perpetrators of crimes in Darfur a top priority. Also, the human rights leaders called on Ban to urge members of the UN Security Council to do everything within their means to ensure that Ahmed Haroun and Ali Kushayb, two Sudanese officials facing arrest warrants from the International Criminal Court for war crimes, are captured and delivered to The Hague.

Amnesty International, Freedom House, Global Rights, Human Rights First, Human Rights Watch, International League for Human Rights, the Jacob Blaustein Institute for the Advancement of Human Rights, and Physicians for Human Rights all signed the letter.
