The Human Rights Secretariat of the Broad National Movement of Canada (BNM) denounces the intentional destruction of evidence and cover-up of the crime of dispersing the sit-in by judicial and government officials in Sudan, following the finding of 168 decomposed bodies in the morgue of Wad Madani Teaching Hospital in Wad Madani, the capital city of Gezira state. The decomposed bodies are believed to be relevant to the missing persons in the crime of dispersing the sit-in of the Army General Command in Khartoum on June 3rd, 2019, where hundreds were murdered, and thousands went missing. BNM confirms its continued fact-finding process and updating of the Canadian government and concerned international institutions on human rights violations in Sudan.
In the morning of February 8th, 2021, the Sudanese people were shocked by the tragic news that bodies of 168 unidentified persons were found piled up in the morgue of Wad Madani Teaching Hospital, which was discovered by chance by a member of one of the resistance committees of the city, after odors caused by the decomposed bodies have spread out.
The official authorities have disclosed neither criminal notices of the deceased persons nor their medical files. However, they denied the news that the decomposed bodies were found by chance, the government officials claimed that those bodies were preserved based on a decision issued by the Investigation Committee into the dispersal of the General Command sit-in in Khartoum, prohibiting the burial of any unidentified body. Additionally, the government officials claimed that the reason behind the spread out of the odors was the breakdown of the refrigeration system in the morgue. Nevertheless, those claims have convinced none of the activists or the resistance committee members who discovered the decomposed bodies. Activists confirm that the condition of the corpses predicts that they have been decomposing for a long time to the point of obliterating their features and sticking to each other and on the floor of the corridors inside and outside the mortuary. While some of the bodies were found in their full clothes, others were found carrying their identification papers with clear traces of smashed skulls and broken ribs.
The discovery of those bodies confirms the blatant interference of the current Transitional Government in covering up for and destroying of evidence relevant to a crime against humanity committed by the Security Forces of Al-Bashir regime to disperse the sit-in of December Revolution. Such actions aiming at aborting the Sudanese great revaluation uncover both the judicial system ills and the transitional government’s interest in the soft landing and settlement project led by the traitors who are currently controlling the reins of power within the state. The control over the country has been granted to those traitors by the constitutional document signed with their criminal military counterparts from the toppled government on August 4th, 2019.
Indeed, it is no secret that the violations of human rights under the current government, from the date of signing the Constitutional Document onwards, are of such a gravity as to its counterparts under the former criminal government of Al-Bashir’s; the same cold-blood murderers continue to brutally take innocent lives of youth of our country who revolted against the same violations of the toppled government. Therefore, the BNM consistently restates that, in the light of the above, Al- Bashir’s regime has not fallen yet and that the revolution must continue.
We, in the Human Rights Secretariat of the Broad National Movement of Canada, pledge to honor the souls of these martyrs by working hand in hand with all honorable and Activists across Canada through organizing a broad campaign for raising awareness, monitoring and following up on those violations to update and possess credible information to the Canadian government, whose role in building international peace and security has been well recognized by the international community; Canada has always stood up for protecting innocent and defenseless citizens from oppressive rulers.
The Human Rights Secretariat of the Broad National Movement in Canada will expand its campaign to become internationally espoused by human rights organizations around the world.
Glory to the martyrs
Long Live Sudan
The Revolution Continues.
