Lawyers for Democracy Declared the Executive pardons marked the beginning of an end to Kiir’s Dictatorship rule in South Sudan

“Kiir is confused mentally and physically incapable of running the country"
For immediate Release

Juba, October 08, 2013 (SSNA) -- President Kiir is confused and ill advised by his Legal Advisor Mr. Telar Ring Deng to issue executive orders, which has no legal basis.

The executive orders issued by President of the Republic of South Sudan Salva Kiir Mayardit pardoning Generals Gabriel Tanginye, Thomas Mabor Dhol, Simon Gatwech Dual, and Gatwech Jock Deng and strangely added Dr. Lam Akol Ajawin and Ex. Minister Peter A. Sule marked the beginning of an end to Kiir”s dictatorship rule in South Sudan. These pardons show how the NCP remote controlled President Kiir confuses the innocent citizens of South Sudan. The people who were pardoned have not committed any crime. They were detained for almost three (3) years without trial and the people of South Sudan and the civil society have been repeatedly calling for their release but all the efforts for (3) years were in vain.  The move showed how Kiir turned South Sudan into a police State. The Lawyers for democracy in South Sudan (LDSS) wanted Kiir to be held accountable for illegal detention of the innocent people and should be taken to court for human rights abuses, declared the LDSS.

The granting of a pardon to a person who has committed a crime or who has been convicted of a crime is an act of clemency, which forgives the wrongdoer and restores the person's Civil Rights, but what crimes or wrong doing committed by these innocent citizens?

On executive pardons, Lawyers for Democracy in South Sudan are calling on the President to tell the people of South Sudan why it took him nearly three (3) years to illegally detained this innocent citizens, and whether this is the exit strategy from power by Kiir, or an attempt of reconciling with his own citizens and the President is looking for a bigger pardon from the people of South Sudan who suffered under his dictatorship.

Kiir should know that Executive Pardons on politician are issued days before leaving office, as President Bill Clinton and Bush granted the pardons shortly before leaving office in the past.

Kiir has to quit power instead of issuing executive pardons as the only way to restore domestic tranquility to a nation that had spent two years in political turmoil.

SSHURSA Welcomes Presidential Decree and Asks his Excellency to do More

OCTOBER 7, 2013

New York, October 8, 2013 (SSNA) -- The South Sudan Human Rights Society for Advocacy (SSHURSA) welcomes the Republican Decree issued on Monday, October 7, 2013 by the South Sudan President His Excellency Salva Kiir Mayardit, ordering release of General Gabriel Tanginye, General Thomas Mabor, General Simon Gatwec Joak, Former United Democratic Front opposition leader Advocate Peter A. Sule and others. This is a welcoming move by President Kiir and we congratulate him for listening to the voices that call for justice.

General Tanginye and his two colleagues were taken into detention since April 2011 after his forces clashed with the SPLA in Kaldak area, Upper Nile State while Sule and 9 of his colleagues still at large were arrested in November 2011 after they were accused of a rebellion in Western Equatoria State.

SSHURSA has been calling on President to release them since the detainees had stayed in illegal military detention for more than three years  without charges and neither being taken before a court of law for trial.This has been a violation of their rights to fair and speedy trial as enshrined in the Transitional Constitution of South Sudan 2011. With their release, the President has done exactly what justice requires of him by virtue of his office, because keeping a person in a detention without charges or trial, is ill treatment, inhuman and amounts to complete torture. Releasing them is a correct way forward.

SSHURSA again calls upon His Excellency the President to also consider a decree on the following:

1. Order the immediate trial of those alleged responsible for the assassination of Isaiah Diing Abraham Chan Awuol(Isaiah Abraham) held by National Security in Juba.

2. Order the release of all the 9 young men arrested together with Peter A. Sule who have been kept somewhere under SPLA detention outside Juba since 2011.

3. Order the National Security or Military Intelligence to produce those who disappeared in persons of Eng. John Louis Silvio(2011), Rev. Idris Nalos Kida, Rev. David Gayin(2013), Modessa Wiyual(2012) and others to hand them to police and take them for trial if any charges.

SSHURSA thanks the President once again and urges him to do more acts which preserve the supremacy of the Constitution in which people’s rights are enshrined.
