Brief narrative Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre IDP News Alert, 28 May 2009 (http://www.internal-displacement.org/idmc/website/news.nsf/(httpIDPNewsAlerts)/0ECD5C34499994F8C12575C400559B88?OpenDocument#anchor0) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ "The United Nations Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) has expressed concern over demolitions in Juba during the past several months and the lack of alternatives that the Government of Central Equatoria is providing to the people who have lost their homes. According to UNMIS, more than 30,000 people, many of them internally displaced, have been left homeless and facing heightened health and environmental risks with the rainy season approaching. UNMIS said that in most cases, the demolitions were inconsistent with national law and international human rights standards, as affected communities were not given notice or offered alternative land or access to adequate housing or compensation; nor were they able to challenge the decision. Many of the people made homeless have moved to Gudelle, some six kilometres from Juba’s town centre. People living in Gudelle said that new people were arriving every day, despite the almost complete absence of services there."
