August 16, 2018 (WASHINGTON) - The investigative initiative to counter the financing of conflict and mass atrocities in Africa, The Sentry, said a South Sudanese general hit by United Nations sanctions was able to travel to China without a waiver.

According to the group, the general who is now the South Sudanese army chief of staff was in China last July in a clear violation of the UN travel ban.

"The Sentry has now been able to confirm that General (Gabriel) Jok Riak did not receive an official waiver from the UN when he visited China last month for the first China-Africa Defence & Security Forum," said The Sentry in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune.

On 5 July 2015, the UN Security Council imposed a travel ban and asset freeze on General Riak and five other militaries from the South Sudanese army and rebel commanders.

As commander of SPLA Sector One that operates mainly in Unity State at the time, Riak expanded the conflict through breaches of the Cessation of Hostilities Agreements, according to the United Nations.

Commenting on the disclosure, the Director of Policy and Analysis at The Sentry, Joshua White, pointed to the need for a follow-up and monitoring system to the sanctions by the Security Council.

White said Riak besides travailing to Beijing without a waiver still has a home in Kampala and the Ugandan authorities should have long ago seized.

"Sanctions must be more than symbolic messages, and we call on the governments of these countries to respect their UN obligations with respect to South Sudan,” he stressed.

Despite the international sanctions, Riak was appointed by President Salva Kiir as the new SPLA’s chief of staff on 3 may 2018.

For his part, Brian Adeba, Deputy Director of Policy at the Enough Project, said the international community would provide a great support to a sustainable peace in South Sudan if it strictly enforces sanctions and "escalates financial pressures on South Sudan’s corrupt officials".

"South Sudan’s new power-sharing deal will be destined for failure if it is implemented with the same neglect as sanctions enforcement," he further said.

    Joshua White/Sentry, you must stop meddling on South Sudan’s affairs or else shut up, Gabriel Jock can travel anywhere in the world as long he’s not buying or purchasing a weapons. If White man are mad, because they’re not buying an oil from South Sudan, then that’s not problem. Peace is now under way, so, stop making excuses now. 4 more days final peace.

      Sentry is US based NGO in South Sudan that’s at the beginning preaching hatred and confusion among South Sudanese people, they have no fact to show the world that what they say is sensical. The same NGO that accused Dinka Padang around oil rich, that they were funding militias by oil money, which proved nonsense. Now, accusing South Sudan defense minister of traveling to China, yet no prove.

                                        with North Sudan. But many South Sudanese people with brains know where the criminals belong. In fact many of those foreign puppets & traitors don’t have real constituencies or supporters back in South Sudan. The US, the UK, their UN & their NGOs are the ones that keep making piece of trashes relevant. But we are going to come & see who is who back in South Sudan anyway including you Mr. Khent>>>

                                          If you think you are that smart and knowledgeable about what is really going in South Sudan. Then why do you think, your US, the UK, their UN & their NGOs are so fixated on South Sudan issues when there are of problems in DR Congo, CAR, Libya, even Kenya itself, Burundi, Somalia and North Sudan’s problems in Darfur, Nuba Mountains & Southern Blue Nile?>>>

    Pakuai and Kush Natives, your English is so bad that you should return to school. You are ashaming South Sudan by exposing your ignorance and hatred for other people. South Sudan is a failed state.
