John Gatwech Lul, Judge

Name: John Gatwech Lul

Title: Judge

Position: Chairperson of the South Sudan Anti Corruption Commission (SSACC).


Background

Gatwech was appointed by South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir Mayardit in November 2011.

Before heading the SSACC Gatwech was a member of the Supreme Court of South Sudan and was one of the nine judges that served in the constitutional court in Khartoum before South Sudan seceded from Sudan in July 2011.

Gatwech’s appointment to the SSACC in 2011 appeared to be an attempt to improve South Sudan’s poor track record at fighting corruption.
