May 28, 2012 (RUMBEK) - Authorities in Yirol West County of Lakes state have brought two men to trial over a fighting earlier this month between fans of English football teams Manchester United and Arsenal, which killed three people.

The fight, between a two bodyguards of the Yirol West County Commissioner and a football fan occurred at a venue where football was being watched on live screens.

Neither Manchester United or Arsenal were playing on May 2 when the incident occurred. One of the commissioner’s bodyguards and the man are reported to have hurled insults at each other.

Later that evening the two bodyguards allegedly attacked the house of the man with whom they had argued, killing two adults and a young girl.

The presiding judge for three greater Yirol Counties, Mathiang Malek, has adjourned proceedings so as to consult with the Court of Appeal in Lakes State’s capital, Rumbek.

The court hearings have been attended by both the families of the victims and those accused.

Judge Mathiang after hearing both sides decided to delay coming to verdict to an unknown date saying that “he is on consultation with Rumbek Appeal Court”.

“I am still waiting some document from judiciary headquarters in Rumbek such that the final judgment is announced” he said.

    Why should people fight and kill each other just on watching screen football match being played in England; supporting players whom you will never ever see in your live. When our local teams play in South Sudan, we do not go and watch. Shame on those involved in such practice.

      U know guys this kind of civilisation thatis making us kill our selves coz of so-called soccer, it is gud to support but not to the extent of fighting not even killing coz what we do is brain storming when ur club is defeated u always tend to blame the coach for the wrong line up,so now killing and fighting i seriously condemn this.secondly delayance by judges is also another problem.

        there nothing to be consulted for Mr Mathiang, the case is very clear it is an intended murder so what do do you need to consult again. let the verdict be released according to the law of intended murder.
