Sudan says army seized rebel camp in border state

Posted: October 27, 2011 by PaanLuel Wël Media Ltd. in Junub Sudan

KHARTOUM (Reuters) – Sudan’s armed forces launched an attack on rebels in the country’s main oil state on Wednesday and seized a rebel military camp, an army spokesman told a state-linked news website.

Rebels from the SPLM-North said there had been fighting in the northern border state of South Kordofan but denied they had lost a camp.

The Sudanese army has been fighting SPLM-N rebels since June in South Kordofan, which borders newly independent South Sudan. Violence spread to the neighbouring state of Blue Nile last month.

The state-linked Sudanese Media Center (SMC) quoted army spokesman al-Sawarmi Khalid Saad as saying the army seized the SPLM-North camp, close to the northwestern town of Taludi, in an attack launched at dawn.

He said 15 rebels had been killed, while one soldier had been injured, the SMC said.

A spokesman for the SPLM-N confirmed it had been attacked but said its forces had repelled the army, killing 15 soldiers. “Our troops are still in the region,” he said.

Analysts say fighting in Blue Nile and South Kordofan risks drawing Khartoum’s former civil war foe South Sudan into a proxy war.

The Sudanese government has accused the south’s dominant Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) of being behind the violence. The South denies this.

Events in Blue Nile and South Kordofan are hard to verify because aid agencies say they have no access to fighting areas and foreign journalists cannot travel there without permission.

A South Sudanese man kills a white neighbor in Sioux Falls, USA.

Posted: October 27, 2011 by PaanLuel Wël Media Ltd. in Socio-Cultural

Murder suspect goes to court

Peter Deng Mayen is escorted to court Monday. He is accused in the slaying of his neighbor, Bruce Walters. / Emily Spartz / Argus Leader
Neighbors’ squabbles boiled over into fatal shooting
Police called 17 times this year over feuding

The fifth homicide of the year in Sioux Falls is described by friends and police as a deadly bubbling over of a long-simmering dispute between neighbors. It was marked by harassment and threats of violence and ended Sunday night in a shooting death.

A judge Monday set bond at $1 million cash for Peter Deng Mayen, 29, who is charged with one count of first-degree murder in the shooting death of 51-year-old Bruce Richard Walters in northeast Sioux Falls.

Police say Mayan approached his neighbor with a handgun at 8:30 p.m. at his home, 1505 E. Sage Place, and shot him at least five times. By the time officers arrived, Walters was dead on his porch from wounds to his chest. Mayen was apprehended at a friend’s house shortly after the killing.

Before Sunday night, the police had been called to resolve conflicts between them 17 times this year, and both men had accused the other of threatening to use a gun. The calls involved varying reports of noise complaints, disorderly conduct or juvenile delinquency, and both households had repeatedly asked for police intervention. On nine of those occasions, police were called to Mayen’s house. Eight of the calls were directed to a disturbance at Walters’ address.

Accused shooter wanted police help

“(Police) would say. ‘You guys just ignore him,’ ” Aware Geu Mayen, Peter Dent’s wife, said outside the courtroom Monday. “We needed the police to be there before what happened yesterday.”

Police spokesman Sam Clemens said such advice is common in disputes between neighbors, especially when no actual violence is reported.

Peter Mayen was cited once this summer for making unreasonable noise. That was the only one of the 17 calls that resulted in a police report.

“You need to have a crime committed before you can arrest someone,” Clemens said. “And arresting someone isn’t necessarily going to solve the problem if you live next door.”

Much of Sunday’s incident was caught on video. Walters had installed a surveillance system in his home because of tension between the households.

Investigators now are trying to piece together what specifically led to the vicious uptick in violence on Sunday, Clemens said.

What is known: Peter Mayen approached his neighbor with a handgun at at 8:30 p.m. at his home after walking by with his elementary school-aged children and dropping them off at a friend’s house, Clemens said. Peter Mayen and Walters exchanged words as the suspect walked by the garage and back to his home. Mayen then returned and shot him.

“What was said, what was not said, that’s kind of up in the air,” Clemens said.

Friends and family of both men were in court Monday, filling the first and second rows of the small sixth-floor courtroom and weeping as Judge Alan Dietrich read the charge and the name of the victim.

Two lawyers with the Minnehaha County public defender’s office declined to argue for their client’s pre-trial release, and Dietrich set a cash-only bond at the amount requested by Minnehaha County State’s Attorney Aaron McGowan.

McGowan told Dietrich that Peter Mayen “made admissions” in the shooting.

After the hearing, Aware Mayen said Walters had harassed and threatened the Sudanese couple and their four children for months, telling them to “go back where they came from.”

‘This guy was really scaring us’

The family was ready to move to a new house, she said.

“This guy was really scaring us,” Aware Mayen said. “No one believed it until this happened.”

Walters’ family and friends declined to comment on the situation outside the courtroom. One woman, who did not wish to be identified, said, “All I can say is he did not deserve that.”

Neighbors said the Mayens played a part in the ongoing conflict as well.

Paul and Jeanette Granum live across the street from Walters and heard the shots from their dining room table hours after joining the couple for a Sunday afternoon motorcycle ride.

“They were young enough to be our children, but they were just really good friends,” Jeanette Granum said of Walters and his wife.

The Granums said they never saw or heard any of the disputes, but they knew about the problems.

Media Editors and Civil Society Consultation on Anti Corruption Bill, 2011

Posted: October 27, 2011 by PaanLuel Wël Media Ltd. in Junub Sudan

“Being corrupt is many things, including stealing time by coming late to work”
Dr. Pauline Riak, Chair of the South Sudan Anti Corruption Commission, declared today at a public consultation with South Sudan Media Editors hosted by AMDISS at the Media Development Institute (MDI), in Juba on Wednesday, 26 October 2011.
The public consultation on South Sudan Anti Corruption Bill 2001, was presided over by the Chair of Anti Corruption Commission, Dr Pauline Riak, Advocate John Saberio, Commissioner at South Sudan Anti Corruption Commission, and Executive Director of AMDISS, Dr. Hakim Dario Moi.

When the Anti Corruption boss arrived at AMDISS just before 2pm to inaugurate the public consultation with an address to the media and civil society organisations, as usual there were a few guests in attendance; no more than one or two at start, and Dr. Riak insisted on starting on time, even with only one guest in attendance! And she was dead serious about it. South Sudanese have not shaken off old Sudan habits of turning up late for any meeting, and this consultation was no exception either.

When it finally kicked off with the address from the Anti Corruption boss at 14:10, she elaborated and outlined the public mandate of anti corruption commission, and hastened to underline public expectations and perceptions about the commission in fighting corruption and/or preventing it.
What are our rights as citizens, and what are our obligations in the fight against corruption, and how is corruption perceived in South Sudanese society? The anti corruption boss explored the answers to these queries and cited a numbe of surveys the commission has undertaken to inform its strategy and policy to combat and prevent corruption. This is further elaborated in the Commission’s 4-year Action Plan report for 2010 – 2014, and the annual report for 2010.

“People listen to the media; radio, TV, newspapers, etc. and they also talk about what’s said by TV, radio and newspapers”, Riak observed. It’s therefore no coincidence that the media is in a strong position to influence perceptions and disseminate information to the public, including on corruption, and she appealed to the media to join in the struggle to fight and prevent corruption in South Sudanese society at all levels. Before the Transitional constitution came into force, the preceding legal framework for anti corruption work only allowed SSACC to investigate but not prosecute corruption cases. The specific cases of former two Ministers of Finance and Economic Planning in the Government of South Sudan were cited by the anti corruption commission as results of its investigations which did not culminate in prosecution for the reasons that SAAC did not have prosecutory powers which were the domain of the police and the judiciary. This is set to change with the new Anti Corruption Bill, now in its 6th version, which derived from the Transitional Constitution of RSS, 2011 giving the commission unprecedented prosecutory powers.

The SSACC boss acknowledged that overall, there is a broad consensus for supporting the commission’s mandate and work to fight corruption and prevent it, that the very existence of the institution and its establishment is indicative of that support, not withstanding that fighting and preventing corruption has been slow in coming, stressing that the aim of SSACC is not only to punish corruption but also to prevent it and most importantly recover that which belongs to the public from those who steal public resources for personal benefit.

Commissioner Advocate John Saberio, argued that in order for prosecution of corruption offense to have a basis, such offences must be clearly defined in law, and drew a distinction between criminal and corruption offences under the law. He cited the example of bribery as a criminal act, one which in a court of law requires proof or evidence that the act actually occurred and was committed by a known party to the offence, and such proof would further require witness. More importantly, different set of legal principles would apply to prosecution of corruption offences than those applicable to prosecuting criminal actions.

In the proposed Anti corruption Bill, 2011, there are provisions for principles of declaration of wealth and property which apply to leaders in Government and public institutions as well as in private institutions, and provisions for assets tracing and recovery covering both movable and immovable assets. The commission would also assume prosecutory powers that are often exercised only by the Prosecutor General, and powers such as those exercised by the police, detention of passports and attachment of property. The main categories of corruption offences in the provisions of the bill broadly cover bribery, abuse of power, life style (living above one’s income, such as owning three hummers cars by one person with no history of possession of wealth), and failure to prevent corruption.

The failure to prevent corruption is broadly interpreted to mean not having in place a system to prevent corruption, and this is deemed to be an offence, with implications not just for public institutions but also for private organisations and individuals failing to prevent corruption as Commissioner Saberio explained.

Admittedly, the anti corruption bill, 2011, will most likely come up against opposition by powerful people in authority and government, who benefit from corrupt practices, and the media needs to ensure that public awareness is raised about the bill to serve the public interest. And with real or perceived high levels of corruption in South Sudan, the claim is made that a high percentage of those in power lack understanding of the rule of law and needed time to change their ways of going about the business of government to serve the public interest. This is where the real challenge lay, and calls upon a joined up approach between SSACC, the media, civil society and citizens to rally strong public support to bring the anti corruption bill into fruition against any opposition from powerful vested interests inside or outside Government.

Anti-Christian Backlash After South Sudan’s Secession

Posted: October 27, 2011 by PaanLuel Wël Media Ltd. in Socio-Cultural

Churches attacked and threatened with demolition as Bashir reiterates promise to make Sudan strictly Islamic.

Compass Direct News | posted 10/26/2011

Emboldened by government calls for a Sudan based on Islamic law since the secession of South Sudan, Muslim residents have attacked Christians trying to finish constructing their church building near Khartoum. Meanwhile, local authorities are threatening to demolish three other church buildings that already exist.

Muslims in the north, where an estimated 1 million Christians still live following the secession of South Sudan on July 9, fear the potential influence of the church, they said.

“They want to reduce or restrict the number of churches, so that they can put more pressure on believers,” said a church leader on condition of anonymity.

The Sudanese Church of Christ (SCOC) congregation in Omdurman West, across the Nile River from Khartoum, has continued to meet for Sunday worship in a building without a roof in spite of opposition from area Muslims and local authorities. Claiming that Christianity was no longer an accepted religion in the country, Muslims in the Hay al Sawra, Block 29 area of Omdurman West on August 5 attacked SCOC members who were constructing the church building, area sources said.

“We do not want any presence of churches in our area,” shouted members of the mob as they threw stones at the Christians, the sources said.

The SCOC has been trying to erect a church building on the site since it obtained the land in 1997, but both government officials and area Muslim residents have used delay tactics to prevent it, according to a Christian who lives in the area. The SCOC in that area of Omdurman is still trying to get permission from the Islamic government in Khartoum to construct the new church building, Christian sources in Khartoum said.

In Madinat al Fath, a different section of Omdurman, leaders from SCOC, the Episcopal Church of Sudan and the Roman Catholic Church said they were surprised to see government officials come to their church premises September 11 and accuse them of operating churches on government land without permission. Officials from the Ministry of Physical Planning and Public Utilities-Khartoum State marked the three church buildings for demolition with red crosses, saying, “We are going to demolish these churches,” the church leaders said.

Jaafer al Sudani, manager of Church Affairs in the Ministry of Guidance and Religious Endowment, said officials there had no knowledge of church buildings to be demolished. The state planning officials insist that the churches are operating on government land. Church leaders say they are not.

No Christians?

In Omdurman West, the issue is less about government land than it is about Christian presence. Muslims and local “popular committees”—responsible for issuing residence certificates necessary for obtaining citizenship or an ID card, with authority to strike down proposals for erecting church buildings—assert that no church is necessary because there are no Christians there. But there are many Christians living in the area, sources said.

The government-appointed members of the popular committees tend to consist of radical Muslims who monitor Christian activities in neighborhoods so they can report them to security authorities, Christian sources said. Previously, area Christians were upset to learn that the popular committees had divided another piece of land they hoped to obtain into two lots—one designated for a mosque, and the other for a Muslim school.

“We have already raised our objection over the way we are being treated in regards to obtaining permission to build this church,” said a church leader who wished to remain unnamed.

The church had filed a complaint with the Ministry of Guidance and Religious Endowments, which last month informed the SCOC that officials will investigate the matter, though they gave no time frame.

Secret surveys

Area Christians said they believe the government is quietly carrying out surveys on Christians and church programs as part of a broader effort to make Islam the official state religion; officials from the Ministry of Guidance and Religious Endowment have called church leaders, asking them to reveal information about their church members and activities of the Churches, they said.

“This is purely for intelligence purposes, so that they can put more restrictions on churches and Christians,” said the Rev. Yousif El-Denger Kodi, general secretary of the Sudanese Lutheran Church. “We as church leaders are aware of their plans, but we pray for God to rescue us from their evil plans.”

Members of the churches threatened with closure they are experiencing a growing tide of hostility since South Sudan’s secession. “These people can do everything possible to clear this country of Christianity,” said one.

Targeting Christian civilians

Sudanese Christian leaders also say efforts to rid the north of Christianity are to blame for the deaths of several civilians in South Kordofan state, about 370 miles southwest of Khartoum.

A Christian in the Leri East area of Kadugli who escaped Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) intelligence agents 18 days after his June 20 arrest from his home said he saw six other Christian detainees taken away, one by one, to be executed over the course of two weeks.

“They were insulting us, saying that this land is an Islamic land and that we were not allowed to be in this land,” he said. “I saw them take my fellow Christian brothers and shoot them in the forest near the place where we were detained. … I was praying despite the fact they were threatening me that I would face the same fate of the six brothers.”

While the SAF and its paramilitary allies have targeted members and supporters of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement forces, the Christian, who requested anonymity as he is still in hiding, said he was detained simply because he was a Christian. A convert from Islam 10 years ago, he said he was scheduled to be executed the day he escaped.

Earlier this month, Sudan President Omar al-Bashir again asserted that the government has decided that Sudan will have a strictly Islamic identity. Al-Bashir, wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity in Darfur, made the statement to leaders of his party in Khartoum on October 12.

Last December, one month before South Sudan’s vote for independence, Al-Bashir declared that if the south seceded as expected, Sudan would amend its constitution to make sharia (Islamic law) the only source of law and Arabic the official language. Sharia is currently only “a source of legislation” according to the Interim National Constitution, but the U.S. Department of State says Islam is favored in law and policy.
