Amnesty International Statement on Sudan's blockade of humanitarian aid
Also, a further concern is the enactment of new legislation regulating the work of NGOs - excerpt:
"Amnesty International calls on the government of Sudan to abide by its repeated commitments to cease the obstruction of humanitarian aid. The undue delay and/or often unreasonable withholding of travel permits and exit visas should cease. Illegal closure and suspension of humanitarian organisations must also be halted.Note, Mar 15 2006 Sudan closes offices of rights group
Amnesty International also calls on the President of Sudan not to sign into effect the 'Organisation of Humanitarian and Voluntary Work Act, 2006' until all provisions that contravene international standards on freedom of association and the Sudanese Interim National Constitution are amended.
