TOWARDS ELIMINATING SLAVERY

AT THE GOVERNMENT LEVEL

  • Require police to assist families in locating their relatives, and to issue warrants for the release of the relatives without pay, once located. 
  • End the practice of arming local militias, Murableen and PDF, which has resulted in slave raiding and child abductions. 
  • Allow local non-government human rights observers to share their information with international monitors. 
  • Encourage local reconciliation between the Dinka and Baggara peoples of south-western Sudan, with assistance to restore traditional peace-keeping structures and methods. 
  • Ask international agencies with experience in the tracing and family reunification field to help set up and run such an agency inside Sudan.
  • Assist researchers and tribal conferences to identify all enslaved individuals and facilitate their return - free of charge - to the affected families. 
  • All armed forces in the Sudan (including the SPLA, militias and security forces) should desist ftorn taking children into slavery, forced Islamization or forced conscription and military training. Top
