Release Peter Ajak Biar And Other Detainees Now

"By releasing Peter he will also restore confidence in the present peace talks and agreements being undertaken in Khartoum".

OFPDP

We in the OFPDP learned with profound sadness the arrest of Mr Peter Ajak Biar, a non-violent human rights activist, on the morning of Saturday 29, July 2018 in Juba while boarding a plane for Aweil, in South Sudan.
 
Based on our experience as former detainees, Peter is now being held in a tiny room in solitary confinement at the National Security Service detention centre at Jebel at the outskirt of Juba. He is being denied access to his family and relatives as well to a lawyer of his choice.
 
We call upon President Kiir to immediately order the release of Peter Biar. In doing so he will underscore the promise he made in June to the Ethiopian Prime Minster, in the presence of Dr Riek Machar, that he would release all political detainees that month. By releasing Peter he will also restore confidence in the present peace talks and agreements being undertaken in Khartoum.
 
We also call upon the President to order the release of the following detainees some of whom have spent more than three years in detention without trial:
1          Nyero Anthony Kenyi
2          James Lual
3          Ladu James Paul
4          Ayume Peter Dada
5          Yahya Babu
6          Ahmed Abdallah
7          Ochaya Godfrey Severio
8          Tartizio Ociini
9          Peter Abderhaman Sule
10        Gen. Elias Lino
11        Aggrey Idri Ezbon
12        Samuel Luak Dong
13        William Endly
14        James Gadet
