The investigation of the Tabara Massacre failed to result in any prosecutions so far. Families of the victims of the massacre accused the Sudanese government and particularly the Ministry of Justice of dragging their feet.
The massacre was carried out 2 September 2010, by armed men wearing military uniform and mounted on camels. They brutally murdered about sixty-four (64) people in the village market, targeting mainly men (read witness accounts).
After the attack, the Justice Minister promised to investigate and bring the perpetrators to trial. Despite this, that there has been no investigation into the massacre — according to victims’ families — who said they can identify the perpetrators, whom they said are affiliated with the government.
Consequently, the grieving families called for an intervention by the UN Security Council and the International Criminal Court to investigate the massacre and bring the perpetrators to trial. Members of two families who fled to Tawila after the massacre told this to Radio Dabanga.
