Assault against Students from Darfur in Sudan

The Darfur Relief and Documentation Centre (DRDC) notes with concern the ongoing assault against students from Darfur in universities and higher education institutions in Sudan. The most recent incident in this respect has been reported at the University of Bakht Alruda, Al-Dewaim Town (White Nile State), where more than one thousand students from Darfur were forced to submit their resignations and abandon the university campus in protest of a series of abuses and maltreatment they have reportedly suffered in the hands of the university administration and the security forces. The students accused the university administration and the local authorities of harassment and intimidation, disruption of life and studies as well as systematic exclusion, discrimination and physical and verbal abuses, including the use of disparaging language and racist slur against them.
