While visiting Sudan this week, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell and United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan should call on the international community to do much more to put a stop to the ongoing atrocities in the Sudanese province of Darfur, Freedom House said today.
The United States should not rush to reward the
government of Sudan for signing a peace agreement with southern rebels
while it is still pursuing a policy of ethnic cleansing in the country's
west, Freedom House said today.
Members of the Board of Trustees of Freedom House sent a letter to President Bush today urging him to take action to make "immediate systemic changes" to prevent any future abuse of detainees under U.S. authority.
