South Sudan: Accountability key to ending human rights violations and crimes under international law

Index Number: AFR 65/4829/2021

Speaking at the UN Human Rights Council today, Amnesty International said that it remains concerned about the government’s lack of political will to ensure accountability for crimes under international law.
While the organization took note of the launch of a reconstituted Technical Committee in May to conduct additional consultations to inform the enabling legislation for the Commission for Truth, Reconciliation and Healing (CTRH), it expressed concerned about the apparent prioritizing and singling out of the CTRH over the establishment of the Hybrid Court for South Sudan (HCSS)
