South Sudan: Comments on the 8 October 2014 Draft National Security Service Bill of the Republic of South Sudan

Index Number: AFR 65/013/2014

Amnesty International, Community Empowerment for Progress Organization (CEPO), The Enough Project, Human Rights Watch, South Sudan Action Network on Small Arms (SSANSA), and Redress Trust submitted these comments on the draft National Security Service Bill. While some positive changes were incorporated into the Bill, the organizations remain concerned that it would give the NSS broad powers, without sufficient oversight and safeguards against abuse. The organizations call on members of parliament to vote against the Bill during the final reading and to make further amendments to bring it in line with South Sudan’s Constitution.
