January 22, 2019 (JUBA) - South Sudan government did not conduct legal proceedings against soldiers who had attacked regional monitors December until now, said the head of the mentoring said on Tuesday.

Maj Gen Desta Abiche Ageno the head of Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements Monitoring and Verification Mechanism (CTSAMVM) disclosed speech before the 3rd CTSAMVM Board Meeting in Juba on Tuesday.

On 18 December, four-member team had been detained for four hours in a facility of National Security Service (NSS) in Luri. A female colonel from the Ethiopian army was forced to remove all her clothing and remain completely naked. A Sudanese army colonel and Kenyan army major were also forced to strip their clothes.

The IGAD and Troika countries condemned the attack and urged the South Sudanese authorities to investigate the violation, bring the perpetrators and their pertinent superiors to justice, and apologize for the victims and the countries they represent.

Gen Ageno told the board that the CTSAMVM teams continue to impose limitations on their freedom of movement, adding that the incident in Luri is just an example.

" The Luri incident is a very serious and grave violation of the peace agreement and we are continuing to urge the TGoNU to take action and hold the perpetrators accountable," he said.

"Accountability measures will be essential in limiting the possibility of this type of incident happening again," he further stressed.

The Troika said they consider that any action compromising the safety, integrity, and free movement of the CTSAMVM mission is a breach of the September 12th Peace Agreement.

The CTSAMVM Board comprises members of the Parties to the peace agreement as well as members of the international community and women’s and youth groups as well as Civil Society.

Regarding the issue of over Sexual Gender Based Violence (SGBV) in Bentiu, Ageno said it remains a huge concern adding that the parties continue to fail in their obligation to protect civilians.

"Our investigations revealed that women and girls in the area are most vulnerable when they are conducting essential survival activities such as the collection of food and firewood," he said.

In November 2018, there were sexual attacks on over 150 women and girls along roads near Nhialdu and Guit to Bentiu in Northern Liech State, according to MSF.

UN Security Council, IGAD, Troika and other structures tasked with the implementation of the peace agreement in South Sudan, condemned the attacks and called on Juba to probe it and to prosecute the perpetrators.

On 22 December, Gender, Child and Social Welfare Minister Awut Deng Achuil informed President Salva Kiir that the 157 cases of rape outside Bentiu reported on 30 November by MSF Holland are "unfounded and baseless".

The minister further said that the group which provided medical treatment to the victims refused to hand over the details they collected on the sexual abuse.

        Some South Sudan rogue security force have in the past behaved as if they were the laws unto themselves, but in this case, they were right and no one will dare touch them. Those three officials from North Sudan, ethiopia and Kenya trespassed a private facility without authorization from relevant authorities and rightly deserved that treatment case close fellows>>>

          Eastern, remember these three countries are wrestling over South Sudan of which country should have greater influence over our country and our people. And these fighting over our country was created by our myopic politicians who are nothng, but bunch fools who are full of themselves and no one else. I tell you fellows what is going on behind the scenes, but detractors would later say that my writings make no sense, that’s fine>>>

            The reasons as to why the whole South Sudanese negotiations were kept away from South Sudan and the South Sudanese people who would come and own the negotiated peace themselves was simply because "troika countries" have not gotten any over South Sudan & the South Sudanese people. And for these so-called troika countries not to be seen as bullies or new colonists of South Sudan, they outsourced their direct bullying to our neighbours>>>

              And neighbours are behind the scenes egged on by their masters from the US, the UK, their UN, the israel attack dog to make their case over South Sudan. Uganda is considered to a considerable amount of influence over South Sudan. Little do some these so-called experts on South Sudan know that Uganda relationship with Sudan is over 60 years in the making and example is this: King Kabaka of Uganda>>>

                  Besides, South Sudan and Uganda have a military agreement Uganda and DR Congo and there was no one else but our Riek Machar of all people who signed that military agreement when he was the vice president of South Sudan before his usual last for power at all costs carried him away in 2013. Countries like Kenya and ethiopia want to put their weights into the ring>>>

Mr. Abiye Mohammed did just and pushed his Riek Machar leverage to his Omar Hassan Al Basir counter part. Mr. Mr. Kenyatta of Kenya has been told by the US, the UK, israel attack dog, their UN and their sleazy NGOs to keep the traitors like Rebecca Nyandeng, her son, Majak Agoot, Adwok Nyabe, Pagan Amuom, Costi Manibe, Uyai Deng Ajak>>>

Mr. Omer Hassan Al Bashir went and his usual Riek Machar and Lam as leverage and bargaining cards over South Sudan.

And the whole game here is stem to movement to Eriteans, ethiopians, Somalis, Darfurs, Nigerians, Niger’s, let say West Africans from crossing Mediterranean sea to Europe. To go and cause problems to Europeans. This same game had been devised in South America and the Caribbean countries that manufacturing are going to be set up in Venezuela, Nicaragua, Hondorous, Guatemala and other countries and the game is to stem to migration of South Americans or Caribbeans to go and cause problems to white Americans>>>
