Oxfam facing expulsion from northern Sudan

Emergencies, Media Releases article written on the 06 Mar 2009

Oxfam is one of several major aid agencies facing expulsion from northern Sudan following the issue of an arrest warrant by the International Criminal Court (ICC) against Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir.

Unfortunately, we can confirm that the Sudanese government has revoked Oxfam’s licence to operate in northern Sudan, but we are appealing against this. Our sole focus in the country is meeting humanitarian and development needs, and this decision will affect hundreds of thousands of lives.
Oxfam Australia contributes funding to our life saving work in Sudan. We are still accepting money, and hope that the government will allow us to continue our important work over the next 30 days while they consider our appeal.
