Murder victim’s family angered at suspect’s reinstatement


December 3, 2013 (JUBA) – The family of late engineer John Louis Silvano has protested over the recent reinstatement of Major General Marial Nour Jok into the police service, saying the latter is the prime suspect in the murder of their son.

Gen Marial was accused of allegedly responsible for the disappearance of John Louis after the two had an argument over ownership of a plot of land.

The victim disappeared since 2011 after he was reportedly summoned to the then office of the Gen Marial who was by then the Director of Public Security and Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in the national ministry of interior.

The victim disappeared on 25 March 2011 together with his Toyota RAV4 car bearing plate number CE 894L.

Before his demise Louis was working as an architect in the national ministry of housing and physical planning.

Media reports were also published about allegations that Gen Marial was involved in torturing prisoners in police jails, bribery and creation of secret and illegal detention centres.

As a result he was then suspended and detained by the former Inspector General of Police, General Acuil Tito Madut who brought the above charges against him.

However, Gen Marial was later on released months after his arrest under unclear circumstances without a court hearing for the charges.

He was recently reinstated into the active police service with his rank as Major General by the president Salva Kiir in his republican decree NO. 96.

However, in a statement published by the Juba Monitor on Tuesday, the father of the deceased, Louis Silvano Tukan, said they were shocked to learn that the suspect was set free and reinstated into the police service instead of facing law.

Tukan protested to president Kiir to revoke the reinstatement of Gen Marial so that he should first appear before a court of law, questioning whether justice prevails in the new country.

"We want to ask the people of South Sudan and the rest of the world that is there justice, rule of law, equality and accountability for all citizens of this new nation?" he lamented.

He further added that the news about the reinstatement of the suspect has renewed mourning in the family, saying they are also fearing for their lives.

"Or does the presidential decree mean to reinstate him such that he can now organise for another dead squad to eliminate me the father and members of John’s family such that the whole case is finally brought to an end”, further reads the statement.

        Amoni jr, you’re the real idiot in south Sudan. From the beginning, what good deed have your uncle Kiir done to poor people of south Sudan? Only what we know little about him is that he is a drunkered and a prostitute. "you said I always respect him, but now he proved to be an idiot and useless p in the world" Your brain is full of food because you know nothing other than jumping like Kiir stooge.

    Wow, it unbelivable to hear that news. What a nation without justice for the victim? How you run this country if the president do such a things. The president is not a judge, does he ? That why people say you can not rule this nation as a president. No human being on earth will tolerate that kind of accusation. If you not exit sooner the world’s justice will come after you the president.

    Kiir should have not done that. That guy (Nour)is a killer. He had been killing people even during the struggles.

      Marial Nuor reinstatement; is a clear indication that kiir is tribal leader, who only persue Dinka interest in regard to national issue, such as Louis death. I believe now that Nuers, Equatoria’s, and other smalls tribes, feeling regrettable why they voted for kiir in 2010 general election.

    President Kiir should immediately reverse this reinstatement of Gen. Marial until he clears his name in front of the court or public protest must commence. It’s unacceptable for alleged murderer be rearmed and even given more authority without public hearings where he can prove his innocent. Such grave or serious injustice can force people to take matter into their own hands and avenge.

    The system in South is above the Law.This is evidenced in reinstatements of those who engaged in practices that are above the Law.Marial Nour is known for acting contrary to the Law since liberation era.Law says citizen who is implicated in any crime against the people of the nation must be cleared by the court before reinstatement.Where there is Marial Nour there is always losses of lives.take ca
