SOUTH SUDAN HUMAN RIGHTS SOCIETY FOR ADVOCACY Juba, South Sudan

December 10, 2012

SSHURSA calls for full investigations, resignation of the Ministers of Security and Interior and urges for speedy trial of the assassins:

As Isaiah Diing Abraham Chan Awuol has been laid to rest on Sunday December 9, 2012, the South Sudan Human Rights Society for Advocacy (SSHURSA) makes this press statement, calling once again upon the South Sudanese authorities in Juba to carry out impartial, speedy, fair and well-intentioned investigations to ascertain who murdered the late!

The murder of Isaiah Abraham makes December 5, the darkest and bloody day that will
never be forgotten in South Sudan by a South Sudanese or any person who believes in the democratic values and rule of law principles for which Isaiah died for. On this day, an
advocate for voiceles poor South Sudanese majority and a symbol of justice, hope and fight against violations of human rights was eliminated. This remains a big blow in the fight against evils which are consuming up South Sudan but SSHURSA will fight till justice is achieved for the late. The questions remain; who killed him? Where are his
assassins and when are they going to be brought to justice and be convicted?

The answers to these questions lie with the South Sudan’s leadership and SSHURSA will continue asking them until the authorities answer them in affairmative.

SSHURSA also calls upon Minister of Security in the Office of the President and Minister of Interior to immediately resign from their positions because they have failed to prevent the assassination of Isaiah Abraham and equally fail to protect people in Juba against organized killings.

As the world celebrates Human Rights Day today; December 10, SSHURSA deeply mourns the loss of the innocent Isaiah Abraham. Once again, SSHURSA sends condolences to the family of the late and also calls upon the public to remain calm while asnwers are waited from the Government of South Sudan.

      I don’t think so as our leaders like their positions more than a country itself leave alone the innocent citizens.
      The minister of interior, Alison Magaya is an experience man, he can make a change... but the present of Acuil Tito and Salva Mathok in that ministry will not help because they are there just protect the government and their statehood Mr Kiir;s security who used to raped women,
