April 27, 2012 (SSNA) -- South Sudan Human Rights Society for Advocacy (SSHURSA) welcomes the guilty verdict on the former Liberian President Charles Taylor by the Court in The Hague. Charles Taylor has been found guilty of aiding and abetting war crimes and crimes against humanity which include murder, rapes, sexual violence, terrorism among others committed in Sierra Leone in the late 1990’s. This is an important verdict as its sends a strongest message to all bloody and dictatorial leaders in the world with Africa leading in numbers. SSHURSA welcomes the verdict because it sends a strong message to those who commit war crimes and crimes against humanity in the name of maintaining a hold on power. It shows that no matter the longer time it takes, the perpetrators of human rights cannot deceive the whole world forever. The verdict also sends a strong message to those who think they can commit violations of human rights at will.
“I think it is a strong and serious warning to the dictators and all those who take pride in killing the civilians and it is relevant to the powerful but perpetrators of human rights such as President Bashir of Sudan and his likes in Khartoum” Noted Biel Boutros Biel, Executive Director, South Sudan Human Rights Society for Advocacy(SSHURSA.”Impunity in the world must come to an end because no any human person can claim the infallibilty”. Biel added.
SSHURSA urges all leaders in Sudan and South Sudan as well as the other African leaders to avoid commiting attrocities or crimes against humanity for if they won’t hit genuine call, no matter how long it takes, justice shall always win at the end as Charles Taylor has just met his fate. Human Rights must be respected at all times and everywhere.
