RE: Renewing the mandate of the Commission on Human Rights in South Sudan and addressing the need for accountability for past and on-going crimes under international law and human rights violations in South Sudan
Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on South Sudan’s authorities to investigate newspaper reporter Malek Bol’s abduction and torture during the weekend and to bring those responsible to trial.
A reporter for the Arabic-language daily Al-Maugif, Malek Bol was dumped by his kidnappers at Juba’s Gumba cemetery yesterday, three days after he went missing. Fellow journalists who recovered him from the cemetery said he was badly injured and bore the marks of torture. He is now in a Juba hospital.
At least 67 killed while reporting or because of their work; RSF condemns failure to protect journalists, calls for “response to match the emergency”.
A total of 110 journalists were killed in connection with their work or for unclear reasons in 2015, according to the round-up published today by Reporters Without Borders (RSF), which is in a position to say that 67 of them were targeted because of their work or were killed while reporting.
On the third anniversary of South Sudan’s independence, Reporters Without Borders has assessed the current state of freedom of information and its dashed aspirations in the world’s youngest state, which has been riven by civil war since mid-December 2013.
The anniversary, on 9 July, was a sad one. Despite all the obstacles, South Sudan had initially seemed to embody a new hope of stability and democracy in the region. But it soon relapsed into the divisive conflicts that had undermined this land and its peoples before independence.

Report by Ambroise Pierre, Africa Desk
An imposing concrete block is the first building that catches your eye on the Juba airport tarmac. It is still surrounded by cranes because it is not finished. The future international terminal was meant to have received those coming for South Sudan’s independence celebration on 9 July 2011 but construction only began a few months before the date. It was not ready in time and now no one knows when it will be completed.
Reporters Without Borders is today releasing a report – in English, French and Arabic – on the state of freedom of information in South Sudan, which will celebrate the first anniversary of its independence in six days’ time, on 9 July.
