Wednesday, March 20, 2019 (PW) Abstract: This paper deals with the “Rights of arbitrarily arrested and detained persons in South Sudan”. It is based upon the juridical norms of criminal law which presumes that the “thousand of accused persons can be punished but one innocent shouldn’t be punished arbitrarily”.The paper explicitly articulate that one of the basic tenets of our legal system is the benefit of the presumption of innocence of the accused person till he/she is found guilty at the end of the trial conducted by a dully constituted open court of law based on the evidence gathered. The reason being that the rights of an accused person not to be arbitrarily arrested and detained are sacrosanct. The accused in South Sudan are accorded certain rights, the most basic of which are found in the South Sudanese Transitional Constitution, 2011.

The Code of Criminal Procedure Act, 2008 sets out the procedures for arrests and detentions and allocate powers to the relevant authorities.

Wednesday, March 20, 2019 (PW) —When hope is lose, the will is lose and the way is lose; in every society there are cultural and socio economic impediments that can trouble members of the society, but all those defies can be deactivated by the level of fortitude and  willpower.

It is not always wise to lose hope and entreaty when in a perilous position because God’s answers are always available for those who seek, knock and solicit.

Affirmative dream is the house of progress whereas negative one host disenchant and obscurity of perplexity.

Before the Independent of South Sudan in 2011 shoddy South Sudanese have been working day in and day out to repudiate the independent of South Sudan.

It is commonly clear that some individuals and groups have been identified as agents of blind hatred, segregation, propaganda and sabotage as revealed by their open stand in directing mistakes make by either individual or certain group to the government docket.

Since Independent till the outbreak of war in 2013, off-putting proclamation has been phrased up by those who lack devotion for South Sudan.

Wordings such as “belede maabe ruoor gidaam”, “agiika mafii fii Junub” and self contradicting expression such as “walai Junubiin” are downbeat distrust and best guesses expressed by the enemies of South Sudan in order to distort national independence. (more…)
