8/23/11 |
WASHINGTON – The Satellite Sentinel Project (SSP) has confirmed the burial of human remains, some of them in body bags or tarps, through a series of DigitalGlobe satellite images taken of two newly discovered mass grave sites in Sudan’s restive South Kordofan region. The addition of the two new mass graves brings the total discovered by SSP to eight.

The Sudanese Red Crescent Society (SRCS) excavated mass graves and filled them with corpses in South Kordofan, according to evidence gathered by SSP. The evidence includes eyewitness reports obtained by SSP, and statements from the SRCS, substantiated by DigitalGlobe satellite imagery. In addition, SSP’s report includes an official SRCS photo of the body disposal team, and notes that SRCS pre-positioned at least 415 body bags and 2,000 plastic tarps in South Kordofan before the fighting began.

Acting on instructions from the State of South Kordofan, the SRCS used an excavator to dig and cover large pits. In some cases, eyewitnesses reported, SRCS workers poured fuel on dead bodies and set them on fire.

The US government has stated in the July 20 edition of The Washington Post, “What they identify as body bags, we see those same items in those same places before the fighting started.” The US government has released no eyewitness report or imagery in support of its assertion.

SSP’s report states: “SSP has determined, though, that these same items were not present in those same places on 7 June or 17 June or 20 July. Since the 14 July report, SSP has published reports from additional eyewitnesses who have seen corpses wrapped in what appear to be white body bags or white plastic tarps. And satellite imagery shows the dumping and subsequent burials of what appear to be white bundles of human dimensions, wrapped in some sort of tarps, and bent in the shapes of the letters ‘C’ or ‘J,’ consistent with human bodies bent at the waist or knees, on a remote, wooded mountainside.” Enough Project Co-founder John Prendergast said:
“The evidence against the Sudanese government continues to compound and has now become impossible to dismiss. It is time for the international community to take serious action and execute its responsibility to protect innocent lives in Sudan.”

An official SRCS photo taken on June 27 shows the executive director for the organization’s South Kordofan branch, Mireikha Aldow Mireikha, with members of the SRCS body disposal team, some of whom are wearing masks or gloves. Sudanese media has quoted South Kordofan Governor Ahmed Haroun, who is wanted by the ICC on charges of genocide in Darfur, as saying that he instructed the SRCS to dispose of the bodies.
SSP’s report states:
“Eyewitnesses have described to SSP seeing a yellow front-end loader with a backhoe digging mass graves in and around Kadugli at sites in which an SRCS Land Cruiser and SRCS workers were also present. One eyewitness described a yellow excavator digging two pits at a site where men dressed in a manner consistent with SRCS workers subsequently threw bodies into the pits. These eyewitness reports, obtained by SSP, are consistent with a statement to the press by the executive director of the South Kordofan branch of SCRS that the locality of Kadugli provided the SRCS corpse management team with ‘a loader for excavation.’ ”
The SSP report also shows what appears to be a yellow front-end loader with a backhoe, less than a kilometer from an apparent mass grave, consistent with what eyewitnesses reported to SSP.

Dr. Charlie Clements, Executive Director of the Harvard Carr Center, said:

“While the US and other members of the UN Security Council continue to debate how to respond, the debate over the existence of body bags and mass graves in and around Kadugli is now over. The Satellite Sentinel Project has irrefutably confirmed that the Sudanese Red Crescent Society has dug mass graves and filled them with large numbers of corpses in body bags or tarps, following reports of systematic mass killing by the Government of Sudan.”

In addition, SSP has confirmed UN reports of six Government of Sudan security checkpoints on roads in and around South Kordofan’s capital of Kadugli.
Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) has reviewed the recent Satellite Sentinel Project (SSP) imagery of alleged mass graves in Sudan. According to the review by Stefan Schmitt, director of PHR’s International Forensic Program, the images provide credible evidence of possible mass graves and require a full and comprehensive forensic investigation.
“To help determine the nature of mass graves, we need to know if the victims were soldiers or civilians and how and why they died. Proper exhumations and examinations would give us this information. PHR is prepared to provide forensic experts in support of an independent investigation into mass graves in South Sudan,” said Schmitt.

Special Report: Evidence of Burial of Human Remains in Kadugli, South Kordofan

Editor’s Note
The Satellite Sentinel Project’s (SSP) identification on 14 July 2011 of a cluster of white bundles in Kadugli as consistent with human remains wrapped in white plastic tarps or body bags was controversial at the time. Although publicly questioned by a US government official, it has now been established by SSP through the collection of additional imagery and eyewitness reports.
This report presents more visual evidence and new information by eyewitnesses who spoke directly to SSP of the collection and burial of human remains wrapped in tarps and/or body bags by the Sudanese Red Crescent Society (SRCS). The bundles were buried at an additional two new apparent mass graves in and around Kadugli.
To date, SSP has identified a total of eight mass graves in and around Kadugli, as well as evidence of corpses wrapped in what appear to be body bags and/or tarps at four sites. Also, SSP’s imagery of apparent mass graves has been reviewed by Stefan Schmitt, International Forensic Program Director for Physicians for Human Rights, who has concluded that the images “provide enough credible evidence to suggest the presence of mass graves.”
Despite the visual evidence corroborating the eyewitness accounts, as well as images of three mounds consis-tent with reported mass graves nearby, the US government claimed that SSP’s satellite imagery provided “no clear evidence of mass graves.” In a 20 July 2011 Washington Post article, “US Government Cannot Confirm Mass Graves in Sudan,” a US government official stated that, “What they (SSP) identify as body bags, we see those same items in those same places before the fighting started.” [1] The US government has released no eye-witness report or imagery in support of its assertion.
SSP has determined, though, that these same items were not present in those same places on 7 June or 17 June or 20 July. Since the 14 July report, SSP has published reports from additional eyewitnesses who have seen corpses wrapped in what appear to be white body bags or white plastic tarps. And satellite imagery shows the dumping and subsequent burials of what appear to be white bundles of human dimensions, wrapped in some sort of tarps, and bent in the shapes of the letters “C” or “J,” consistent with human bodies bent at the waist or knees, on a remote, wooded mountainside.
Statements and press releases by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the SRCS, and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) have also confirmed that mass body recovery and disposal operations have been occurring in Kadugli. A 1 July report released by IFRC verifies that the SRCS, reportedly acting on instructions from the Government of South Kordofan, has been actively collecting dead bodies in Kadugli town, and had at least 415 body bags and 2,000 plastic tarps recently transferred to it from the IFRC prior to the fighting in June. By the end of June, the SRCS was publicly saying it needed more body bags.
This, paired with a 7 July statement by the ICRC stating that it “provided Sudanese Red Crescent emergency action teams with technical advice on the management of dead bodies, and with the body bags they needed to recover the dead,” corroborates SSP’s assertion that the white or light-colored objects are consistent with body bags. Additionally, an 18 August statement by the executive director of the SRCS in South Kordofan says that the locality of Kadugli had provided a loader for excavation.
It is now two months since reports of the systematic killing of civilians in Kadugli by Government of Sudan-aligned forces first emerged. The debate continues about what further steps the US and the international community should take in response to the gross violations of human rights that have been reported. What should no longer be debated, however, is that these alleged crimes, including mass killing and subsequent mass burial of the dead, have happened and continue to occur.
