(30 August 2017) The African Centre for Justice and Peace Studies (ACJPS) calls for urgent steps to be taken to investigate and hold to account the perpetrators of a gang rape of a 16-year-old girl reported to the police in Nyala, South Darfur. Sudanese authorities should ensure the allocation of adequate resources and victim and witness protection in the case, which took place in the vicinity of Nyala on 17 August. Both the victim and her father were held at gunpoint for over eight hours, and the victim was raped repeatedly in front of her father.
