South Sudan: Widespread impunity continues to fuel crimes under international law

Speaking at the UN Human Rights Council today, Amnesty International thanked the Commission on Human Rights in South Sudan (the Commission) for their report, which again demonstrates the alarming scale of grave human rights violations and abuses, flagrant disregard for international humanitarian law by the government and armed actors, and continued failure of the authorities to investigate or prosecute crimes under international law.
Amnesty International documented how between June and October last year, local groups aligned with forces affiliated to the army and the Sudan People’s Liberation Army-In Opposition attacked civilians in Tambura county, Western Equatoria State.
