May 1, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —– African Centre for Transitional Justice (ACT-J) welcomes the formation of Transitional Government of National Unity (TGoNu) by the parties to the Agreement on the Resolution of the conflict of South Sudan (ARCISS) with reservations. Since the eruption of war that have killed thousands and displaced many civilians in Juba, Malakal, Bentiu and Bor respectively, most of the people have been waiting for the return of peace and resettlement among the communities that are currently in United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) Pocs camps across the Country . It is therefore, very crucial for the parties who caused the conflict to account for the crimes they have committed beginning from 2013 to 2016, in order for the peaceful co-existence of South Sudanese peopleintheCountry.
The culprits who have killed innocent civilians should be brought to book and answers what lead to massacre, cannibalism , tortured, raped ,killings of the civil population in the Country.
The two former warring parties to the conflict under leadership of President Kiir Mayardit and his first Vice President Dr. Riek Machar MUST identify the culprits who were responsible for war crimes, crimes against humanity and cases related to genocide, in order for the reconciliation, truth seeking, tranquility , reforms and democratization processes to be achieve in South Sudan otherwise, peace implementation without proper accountability and national reconciliation is meaningless.
- ACT-J calls for the parties concern to address amicably the remaining unresolved issues related to the implementation of the Compromised Peace Agreement (CPA) like the case of creation of 28 states and other issues related to the insecurity and reforms in the Country.
• ACT-J calls upon the international partners to the Agreement on the Resolution of the conflict of South Sudan (ARCOSS) like AU, IGAD Members, EAC, TRIOKA Countries to come closer and help in quick formation of hybrid court as mentioned in the Compromised Peace Agreement (CPA) signed last year August 2015 by the parties, in order to deal with criminals who committed serious crimes for the last two years and half.
• There is need for the formation of hgbrid tribunal with efforts to reconstruct the national justice system in South Sudan, otherwise if the parties who committed crimes against humanity are not question by the world, than peace and reconciliation initiatives might not go as many people wishes.
African Centre For Transitional Justice (ACT-J) is non-political, non-governmental organization, formed by professional South Sudanese Journalists and Lawyers in 2014 to address issues of; Transitional Justice Mechanisms , Advocacy on accountability , Human Rights Monitoring and Documentation, Democracy and Governance and Peace Building in South Sudan.
