SUDANESE PRESIDENCY DESCRIBES AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL REPORT ON CHEMICAL USE AS “FABRICATED”
KHARTOUM, — Sudanese Presidency has described the report of Amnesty International, which accused Sudan’s army of using chemical weapons in Darfur, as “fabricated and baseless.”
“Amnesty international used fabricated photos of people from western Africa as if they are from South Kordofan with the aim of misleading,” said Ibrahim Mahmoud Hamid, Sudanese Presidential Assistant, at a press conference in Khartoum.
“Sudan does not produce or use chemical weapons. These accusations are baseless and come from organizations that target Sudan with the aim to disturb the Sudanese national project,” he added.
He went on saying that “Amnesty International is known for its blatant enmity towards Sudan,”
Hamid further challenged the organization to reveal the names of the people.
Last week, Amnesty International issued a report accusing the Sudanese army of killing dozens of civilians, including children, in attacks using chemical weapons in Sudan’s Darfur, which the Sudanese government strongly refuted.
On Tuesday, the United Nations called on the Sudanese government to fully cooperate with the organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons regarding the claims on use of chemical weapons in Darfur.
