South Sudan justice minister, Kenyan Attorney General summoned by EA court over Dong, Aggrey’s murder
July 5th 2019 (Nyamilepedia) – South Sudan’s justice minister. Paulino Manawila, who doubles as the Attorney General, and Kenyan Attorney General have been summoned by the East African Court over the murder of two opposition figures.
Last April, the UN released a report saying it has amazed evidence that suggests that South Sudan’s intelligence chief, General Akol Koor, was responsible for the unlawful extradition of Dong Samuel Luak, a human rights activist, and Aggrey Iddri, a opposition figure, from Kenya and their subsequent killing.
The government later on denied the claim and said it was meant to tarnish its image as it deplored an “international regime change agenda.”
In an order issued on Tuesday, the court based in Arusha summoned South Sudan’s justice minister and Kenyan Attorney General over the issue.
The order says the two have 45 days to show up and present explanation to the matter filled by human rights advocacy lawyers.
