September 6, 2012 (JUBA) – The office of a human rights and civil society organisation in South Sudan’s capital Juba were raided and looted by unknown gunmen, activists said on Wednesday.

Biel Boutros Biel, the executive director of the South Susan Human Rights Society For Advocacy (SSHURSA), said the office was broken into early on Wednesday. Police have so far failed to make any arrests.

“We issued a statement yesterday and we call all our members in the country, all our staff in the country that they should not be scared because of this act and we are used to this intimidation and we will not give up, we will not leave our work of human rights," Boutros is quoted by UN radio, Miraya FM, as saying.

In July the Chairperson of South Sudan’s Civil Society Alliance, Deng Athuai Mawiir, who has played a high profile role in campaigning against South Sudan’s rampant corruption, was kidnapped and tortured by unknown assailants.

Human rights activists suspect that South Sudan’s security services may have been involved in the attacks, although this has been denied by the government.

Reports by international human rights groups have been highly critical of South Sudan’s human rights record since the country separated from Sudan in July 2011.

South Sudan’s ruling party - the political wing of the former rebels that fought the Khartoum government for over two-decades - have been criticised for failing to live up to the values it says it fought for during the civil war.

        Dear brother
        South Sudan is now difficult to control as there are thousands of militia groups inside Juba,Kiir/Riek have tried their best but no cooperation from the parliament that should have addressed the issue of corruption.Some tend to forget that South Sudan is a democracy with a Parliaments.

    These are the acts of Kiir gangs, the security elements. They have earlier toutured and humiliated the boss of human right activist. They don’t want the truth just like their partners in the North. They are resposible for all human rights violations such as killings, arbitrary arrest and detentions in ghost houses, rapes and worst things that satan did not do. May Kirr and his gangs go to hell.

      2.why declaring the assets for Govt officials
      3.why do these 75 corrupt officials come and plan of cut off for 50% from house rent allowance? and the list of question goes.

        as someone uneducated, my children also follow the same way.
        and the child whose father the minister will rule my child as his father did to me too.
        For the one who got killed in war field during struggle is just a bush.

    This government is weaker and weaker everyday with such corruptions like this one. It only show the luck of leadership from the top. This is one of the one hundred reasons why the majority of the government is from one tribe.

    A weak leader comes from weak administration and weak people. We are divided on ethnic lines,we don’t speak out against the SPLM terrorism. We don’t forgive ourselves in order to move our nation forward, and now many of you are claiming are catch in between the leadership and tribes. First of all, Salva Kiir and his ministers, generals and directors are self centreness rulers, people

    people aiming to enreach themselves at the expenses of nation wealth. The recent list indicated that the corruption government Salva Kiir is full of millionairs, the last millionairs in that list is a man that has 5 milions dollars in his account. And he is a former governor of one of our ten states.
