U.S. DELEGATION LED BY RAMSEY CLARK RETURNS FROM FACT-FINDING MISSION IN SUDAN
36 EAST 12 STREET,
CLARK CALLS FOR "RESTITUTION" IN DESTRUCTION OF SUDANESE FACTORY
Ramsey Clark, former U.S. Attorney General, and a delegation from the International Action Center (IAC) will return to the U.S. early September 22 after a fact-finding mission to Sudan. During their mission they visited the Al Shifa pharmaceutical factory that was destroyed by U.S. bombs on August 20, 1998. The delegation interviewed surviving workers, families of the victims of the surprise attack, UN representatives, and visited refugee centers.
Speaking on September 20 at a demonstration of thousands of Sudanese people, Ramsey Clark apologized for the destruction of the Al Shifa pharmaceutical factory and called for the U.S. to make financial restitution, according the Associated Press reports.
Clark and his delegation will be returning Tuesday morning, September
22, and will hold a press conference at 36 East 12th Street 6th floor,
Manhattan at 12 noon.
