Amnesty International reveals that 24 women’s and girls’ rapid support was taken to hotels in conditions that amount to sexual slavery

Amnesty International revealed that a group of 24 women and girls had been abducted by RSF members and taken to a hotel where they had been detained for several days in conditions that amounted to sexual slavery.

Many survivors were unable to obtain medical and psychosocial support.

In a report, AI noted that in most cases documented by Amnesty International, survivors said that the perpetrators were members of the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) or allied Arab militias.

“Rape, sexual slavery and other forms of sexual violence committed in the context of an armed conflict are war crimes.”

A 25-year-old woman from El Geneina told Amnesty International that three men belonging to the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), armed in civilian clothes, forced her into the civil records office in the customs neighbourhood where they raped her.
