Bashir to forbid humanitarian aid in SK
On its part, the SPLM-South Kordofan firmly condemned President Bashir's intention to reject foreign humanitarian organizations providing relief to the victims of the government's bombing raids in South Kordofan, saying it should be considered a crime against humanity.
The movement furthermore accused, without any evidence to support its claims, Kadugli Red Crescent leader Mererrha of playing a double role as the leader of a militia involved in the South Kordofan massacres.
Pledge for an air-ban and an investigation team
Dahlman, media adviser to the head of the movement, Abulaziz al-Hilu, appealed to the international community to pressure the government, and also pressed the United Nations to hold an emergency session in order to impose an air-ban over South Kordofan.
He also appealed to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to send an investigation team as quickly as possible to South Kordofan, as the National Congress Party (NCP) led by SK-Governor Ahmed Harun is beginning to dig up and remove the bodies from the mass graves.
The mass graves were discovered last month by a US-satellite in Kadugli. Harun, along with Bashir, is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague.
