Sudan Trashes Peacekeepers for Handing Over IDPs & Guns, Ladsous No Answers

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, April 29 -- The UN in Darfur claims to still be “investigating” why its peacekeepers handed over more than 30 internally displaced people to kidnappers back in March.

  But in the Security Council on Monday, Sudan's Permanent Representative Daffa-Alla Elhag Ali Osman brought up not on the handing over of civilians, but also UNAMID handing over of weapons and vehicles to the rebels “without a fight.”

  Listening to Daffa-Alla Elhag Ali Osman but not responding to the issue was UN Peacekeeping chief Herve Ladsous. He has thus presided over numerous failures at DPKO on which he refuses to answer questions.

  On April 25 alone, or with spokesman Kieran Dwyer, video here, Ladsous refused to answer Inner City Press questions about Mali (who will disarm the MNLA?), Western Sahara (why does he accept Morocccan license plates on MINURSO vehicles?), Cote d'Ivoire (why is he proposing a drone with no approval?) and the 126 rapes in Minova by the Congolese Army, his partners.

  On that, Ladsous has previously refused Inner City Press questions on November 27, December 7 and December 18. So will he explain the hand over of guns, vehicles and IDPs as hostages? Watch this site.

  Last week in the General Assembly Daffa-Alla Elhag Ali Osman trashed a Temple University professor who has spoken about Darfur, Molefi Kete Asante. It wasn't clear who had set up the panels. We aim to have more on this.
