Fifteen years ago General Bashir was prepared to use Sudan’s huge refugee population as pawns in his battles with the West. Clearly today nothing has changed. Near Khartoum, 1.8 million war-displaced Southerners live impoverished lives in the desert. For three years the authorities have bulldozed homes and forced the displaced from the city into the desert. We speak to Sudans Minister of Housing – more appropriately the Minister of Demolition. General Bashir was questioned then over his human rights record. Survivors of secret torture prisons (Ghost Houses) tell how their fingernails were pulled out. Bashir denies that such things occurred in his prisons.
