The displaced people of camp Neem east of Ed Daein in East Darfur have set a package of conditions for voluntary return including providing security and services. They also demand that their farms and residential lands be returned to them in full.

One of the sheikhs told Radio Dabanga that on Thursday the camp leaders, sheikhs, and youths union held a meeting at the camp in the presence of the representative of Nazir of the Rizeigat on the voluntary return demanded and called for by the government.

He explained that they rejected the return they described as politicised in which the government has not provided security or services.

He said they set up a package of conditions for voluntary return including provision of security and services and handing over their agricultural and residential lands in full.

Last week about 400 displaced of the camp returned to their village at Areit area but were attacked and beaten by unidentified gunmen who injured two of them. The sheikhs said that the displaced returned to camp Neem on Monday morning on the orders of the locality commissioner, Hamdan Adam El Bushra, so as to prevent further violence and clashes.
