Darfur Rebels Sentenced to Death in Sudan!

A Sudanese court sentenced to death on Tuesday, 12 members of Darfur rebels, the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) for participating in an attack on Khartoum last year, in which more than 200 people were killed.

The sentences bring the number of those sentenced to death by hanging from the (JEM) to 103 members.

Judge Mudathir said (JEM) fighters had been convicted of terrorism, murder, and destruction of public property as part of an unprecedented attack against the city of Omdurman in May 2008.

The judge said during a brief hearing acquittal has given to thirteen other people because they are suffering from particular psychological situations.

Darfur rebels chanted at the time of sentencing to death "God is greatest, revolution until victory," according to news agency AFP, and "Welcome ICC" according to Reuters.

The Sudanese judiciary (which was a target to the Sudanese military religious regime to dissolve and change radically by their cadres after the coup of 1989) has established special courts in Khartoum, Khartoum North and Omdurman to try dozens of suspects arrested after the attack.

Reuters broadcasted that Darfur Rebels drove across hundreds of miles of desert and scrubland and got within a few kilometres of Sudan's presidential palace before the troops of the Sudanese dictatorial regime drove the rebels and defeated them after fierce fighting. Sudan says more than 200 people, many of them civilians, were killed.

Amnesty International condemned "the continuation of the Sudanese authorities to carry on the death penalty after unfair judicial mechanisms."

And it should be noted that since 2003 the conflict in Darfur between government troops, backed by semi-Arab militias and rebel groups has killed about 300,000 people and displaced hundreds of thousands of people in accordance with what the United Nations recognised.

However, the dictatorial authorities in Khartoum have different figure that sums the numbers up to ten thousand only.

Senior JEM official Al-Tahir al-Feki denounced the ruling, saying it would hamper already troubled on-off peace talks with Khartoum in the Gulf Arab state of Qatar where the two have yet to agree on a ceasefire.

"This shows the government is not serious about solving the problem of Darfur," he said. "While our team is negotiating in Doha, the Sudanese government continues to sentence our members to death, illegally, because they should be treated as prisoners of war."

Is it a tragicomedy to have Sudanese judiciary sentenced to death 12 people from the Justice and Equality Movement?

It seems to be! However, revolutionist factions should take care next time "to strike deep inside the forces not amongst civilians", special revolutionist source said to HOA's Political Scene.
