Salih Mahmoud Osman, Sakharov Prize laureate 2007

Salih Mahmoud Osman, a Sudanese human rights lawyer working in the Darfur region of Sudan, has been awarded the 2007 Sakharov Prize for freedom of thought.

 

MEPs from across the political spectrum voted to honour Salih Mahmoud Osman for his work in trying to bring justice to the victims of civil war in the troubled region. Accepting the prize on Tuesday 11 December in Parliament's Chamber in Strasbourg, Salih Mahmoud Osman called for Europe and the international community not to abandon the people of Darfur.
It is estimated that over 400,000 people have died in the conflict in Darfur - a situation that Mr Salih describes as "genocide".
