“The King is Naked”

ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo has again asserted that he received “zero” information from humanitarian groups in Darfur.

He also dismissed the idea that the issuance of an arrest warrant for Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir directly caused the subsequent expulsion of aid organizations –

It is very interesting, the prosecutor is responsible not the criminal? The king is naked. It is not my responsibility that he is naked.

The devastating effects of aid groups being kicked out are beginning to come to fruition. One Darfur IDP camp is expected to experience a severe water shortage. The camp, designed to hold only 30,000 people, is currently home to 80,000.

ReliefWeb has released a great diagram showing the extent that various humanitarian assistance projects in Sudan are affected by the aid group expulsion – including water and sanitation, food security, health and nutrition, and shelter. Affected beneficiaries amount to as high as 1.5 million.
