Sudanese authorities have deported more than 400 Eritreans back to their country, according to Human Rights Watch (HRW).

Furthermore, reports indicate that of those deported were six registered refugees.

“Sudan should be working with the UN refugee agency to protect these people, not send them back to face abuse,” noted Gerry Simpson, senior refugee researcher and advocate at HRW.

If Sudan wants to market itself as a refugee-rights-respecting nation, it’s going about it the wrong way.
HRW states that Sudan has been arresting and forcing Eritreans back without allowing refugees to seek protection. This is despite international law forbidding countries from deporting asylum seekers without first allowing them to apply for asylum.
“International law also prohibits the deportation, return, or forced expulsion of anyone to a place where they face a real risk to their life, or of torture or ill-treatment,” read an excerpt from the organisation.

Meanwhile, UN refugee agency, UNHCR, says Sudanese authorities denied them access to identify those who wanted to seek asylum.

Sudan is said to have arrested 377 people in the Sudanese border town of Dongola on May 6 who were trying to cross to Libya. Of those arrested were 313 Eritreans and 64 Ethiopians who were tried and convicted of illegal entry into Sudan.

Despite Sudan deporting Eritreans, the country continues to detain those from Ethiopia. This is not the first time the North African country has deported foreign nationals drawing international condemnation.

“If Sudan wants to market itself as a refugee-rights-respecting nation, it’s going about it the wrong way,” Simpson said. “Eritreans, Ethiopians and others who want protection must be allowed full access to fair asylum procedures.”

According to UN estimates, hundreds of thousands of Eritreans have fled the country in recent years. Many flee the country due to a repressive government.

“Throughout 2015 and 2016, between 3,000 and 4,000 Eritreans fled their country each month and claimed asylum in Ethiopia and Sudan’s refugee camps,” said HRW."

  1. My life became devastated when my husband sent me packing, after 8 years that we have been together. I was lost and helpless after trying so many ways to make my husband take me back. One day at work, i was absent minded not knowing that my boss was calling me, so he sat and asked me what its was all about i told him and he smiled and said that it was not a problem. I never understand what he meant by it wasn't a problem getting my husband back, he said he used a spell to get his wife back when she left him for another man and now they are together till date and at first i was shocked hearing such thing from my boss. He gave me an email address of the great spell caster who helped him get his wife back, i never believed this would work but i had no choice that to get in contact with the spell caster which i did, and he requested for my information and that of my husband to enable him cast the spell and i sent him the details, but after two days, my mom called me that my husband came pleading that he wants me back, i never believed it because it was just like a dream and i had to rush down to my mothers place and to my greatest surprise, my husband was kneeling before me pleading for forgiveness that he wants me and the kid back home, then i gave Happy a call regarding sudden change of my husband and he made it clear to me that my husband will love me till the end of the world, that he will never leave my sight. Now me and my husband is back together again and has started doing pleasant things he hasn't done before, he makes me happy and do what he is suppose to do as a man without nagging. Please if you need help of any kind, kindly contact Happy for help and you can reach him via email:
