S. Sudan monitring body says rebels killed FVP’s representative


March 10, 2017 (WAU) – The Ceasefire Transitional Security Arrangement
Monitoring Mechanism (CTSAMM), concluded that one of its members representing the SPLM-IO led by Taban Deng Gai was killed in Wau by alleged members of a rebel group.

The mechanism which is tasked with monitoring and verification of the implementation of a permanent ceasefire between parties and armed groups, Thursday said it had completed investigations into the death of one of its members Lt. Col. al-Fadil Meil Issa

The CSTAMM Chairman, Major General Molla Hailemariam, said that the investigation results indicate that the late Fadil was killed by rebels operating in Wau loyal to the former First Vice President Riek Machar.

Fidal was appointed by the FVP Taban Deng Gai who broke away from Machar following the bloody clashes in Juba last July.

“We call on the relevant authorities to ensure the perpetrators are apprehended and brought to justice as our staff should not have to feel under threat in carrying out their duties and, as such, a precedent must be set to ensure such politically motivated killings do not go unpunished,” read the statement extended to Sudan Tribune.

The CTSAMM comprises representatives from the warring parties who are considered as board members. Also, the panel includes the Former Detainees, the Women’s Block, Civil Society Organisations and the youth.

The Eminent Personalities, the African Union, China, the European Union, Troika, UNMISS, the IGAD and the IGAD Partners Forum have also their delegates who meet on a regular basis to discuss the CTSAMM reports before the reports are submitted to the JMEC.

On January 26, the Mayor of Wau, Mel Aleu Goc reported that four suspects working within the UN camp were apprehended in connection with the incident involving the Lt. Col.

    Killing Al-Fadil Meil Issa will change the game of the war in South Sudan, because rebels now label themselves as manic, stupid, killers, out laws and bad guys to the world. We should not be surprise why Riek is parked in South Africa. IO members are nothing, but thieves.

    Dear CTSAMM, do not deceived the general public about your useless guy who got killed by you in Wau. Which ceasefire are you monitoring now in Juba, South Sudan? Taban Deng Gai is not signatory of Peace Agreement only Dr. Machar and Kiir are the signatories to the agreement. Do you stop Kiir not killed the people of South Sudan, if you are powerful body. I doubt your works 100% plus 1.
