South Sudan: Unfreeze civil society and political activist’s bank accounts

The Bank of South Sudan must immediately unfreeze the accounts of three civil society organizations, a think tank, four civil society activists and a political activist. The 46 organizations signed on to this statement believe that the freezing of these bank accounts is an attempt by the South Sudanese authorities to suppress calls for peaceful protests against the government and unduly restrict the rights to freedom of expression, association and peaceful assembly, including by forcing them to stop the activities of real and perceived members of a newly formed civic action group called the People’s Coalition for Civic Action (PCCA).
