May 1, 2019 (JUBA) - South Sudan security service killed two opposition activists after kidnapping them in Kenya in January 2017 said, a report by UN panel of experts.

Aggry Iddri, SPLM(IO) National Committee Chairperson of Humanitarian Affairs and Dong Samuel, Human Rights activist disappeared in Nairobi after their kidnapping by South Sudan on 23 and 24 January 2017, respectively.

After, the signing of the revitalized peace agreement, Juba released several political detainees but denied knowing anything about the whereabouts of Iddri and Samuel.

However, in a report released on Tuesday, the Panel of South Sudan experts said both were kidnapped by the National Security Service and transported to Juba on 27 January 2017.

"Aggrey Idri and Dong Samuel Luak were executed by Internal Security Bureau agents at the Luri facility on 30 January 2017, on orders from the commander of the National Security Service training and detention facilities in Luri, the Commander of the National Security Service Central Division and, ultimately, Lieutenant General Akol Koor Kuc," reads the report.

Reacting to the report SPLM-IO leader Riek Machar condemned the "barbaric act and called on the government to bring to book all those who participated in committing this act of terror".

Machar further requested the Kenyan government to take measures against the Kenyan collaborators on this crime.

In addition, he requested the UN Security Council to refer the case to the International Criminal Court (ICC), adding they will take it to the Court of Justice of the African Union and renewed call to establish the hybrid court of South Sudan.

In a joint statement, Amnesty and Human Rights Watch called on the government in Juba to launch "an independent and effective investigation on the murder of the two victims".

“The UN experts panel’s finding that Dong and Aggrey were most likely murdered days after their abduction while family and friends were stonewalled by Kenyan and South Sudanese authorities shows shocking cruelty,” said Jehanne Henry, associate Africa director at Human Rights Watch.

    If the world was not turning into something else, then a clown like Mr. Riek Machar would have been the last person on earth to be calling the so-called ICC to investigate anyone in South Sudan?!! But all the same, this is just another SUdan Tribune ’disinformation’ war fare anyway that no serious South Sudanese can take this piece of propaganda seriously>>>

      First of all South Sudan is not a signatory to the so-called ICC and the chances for ICC arresting or charge any South Sudanese if he/she is a known mass murderer like Mr. Riek Machar are next to zero. ICC was created with good eintentions, but it later turns as Europeans club to play games with their African fools who worship them>>

        A mass murderer like Mr. Tony Blair of the devil infested lsland of England killed a lot Iraq with phoney smokescreen of weapons of mass destruction with his G W Bush cousin of the US of old A. And there they are, the so-called ICC is hand of them, they are special species from special race and special or exceptional countries!! Good luck to them with their exceptionalism though>>

          Their evil specialism or exceptionalism isn’t wanted here in South Sudan by the South Sudanese people. They can damn take Riek Machar to their devil infested lsland of England or their UN building and leave our country & our people alone to heal. Because, there is no way under the sun we will welcome anything that is connected to evil Americans, English people, their cloned so-called arabs>>>

            The head of Security Mr.Koor must be arrested including one who gave the go ahead. This shows the lack of maturity within the government of South Sudan. The UN, IGAD must make sure that accomplices from Kenya must be arrested including one who gave the go-ahead for the kidnapping, transfer to Juba. It is not jungle law.

      Rossbelongstoall,
      FYI, Pakuai is some automated response system that spews similar messages all the time irrespective of the thematic contents. By all standards, this is a Sudan Tribune robot. It can’t think on its own and has no senses nor brains. There are many such automatic response robots configured onto computer servers everywhere. So Pakuai is a robot like HARLIE, SAM, HERBIE etc.

      Ateny Wek has denied that the presidency knew anything about the 2 killings. If true, then Akol Koor Kuc is the "shadow dictator and puppeteer" with the kiirminal as the ignorant and drunken puppet. May be the Kiirminal is innocent but there are many profiteers who surely wish he remains the "eternal fool and useful idiot". As president, he bears responsibly for not controlling his "wild dogs
