The Governor of South Darfur state, Adam El Faki Mohamed El Tayeb, has issued a decree of general amnesty for all the people in the camps for displaced in South Darfur, who have collaborated with the armed movements, in a move to push forward Sudan's dialogue process.

He stated to the press on Wednesday that the decision has come in the context of the state’s efforts to repair the social fabric, “for a decent life without restrictions or conditions on the inhabitants of the camps and for curbing the outlawness”.

Governor El Faki added that aspects of inscurity are “on their way to be deterred”, after security has been extended in the state.

“The implementation of the presidential decree of general amnesty for all the collaborators with all the armed movements, will push forward the national dialogue process”.

In November last year, displaced people living in camps such as Kass were arrested in a raid campaign by the security service, on charges of collaborating with rebel movements present in- and outside the camps.
