Embassy of Sudan
Roy and Glen Pearson, London Ontario food bank, carry a campaign to raise
$10,000, under the so-called Slave Redemption Project/ Program on
the pretext of freeing Slaves in Southern Sudan. The embassy of the
Sudan deplores and denounces in the strongest terms these unsubstantiated
allegations about slavery in the Sudan.
embassy reiterates that no slavery is practiced in the Sudan. And that the
1998 Constitution of the Sudan, national policies and international
commitments clearly express the Government stance against any from of
slavery or slavery like Practices-any where and at any time.
money under such a pretext is a tragic abuse of the Canadian generosity, a
flagrant exploitation of the innocent Southern people and tarnishes the
image of the Sudanese as a nation.
embassy, calls upon all those who generously give their money to
investigate as to whether their humanitarian gesture is on the right
track, helpful to the peace process -in the Sudan- and the affected people
or, they aggravating an already sour situation.
