By Martha David
South Sudan Human Rights Commission in partnership with South Sudan Human Rights Defenders Network developed a mechanism to provide better solution for the prisoners and detainees in the country.
Speaking during the event, Chairperson for Human Rights Defenders Network, Edmund Yakani said that it was a primary priority to ensure that working in partnership with SSHRC is in place to address the issues of human rights in the country.
“We are going to look in to the tools of monitoring the detention and the terms of police or persons so at least that will reach concenters,” said Yakani.
“It’s a collective responsibility to work for the response together with human right commission to achieve the agenda of human rights in the country,” he added.
The Commissioner for South Sudan Human Rights Defenders, Benny Gidean Mabore said the objective was to understand monitoring and documentation for detainees and prisoners in the country.
Benny explained that the training was meant for accessing the human Rights situation in Juba and to provide accurate reports on the Human Rights situation.
“We are going to recommend concrete follow-up of detainees to relevant government and international community on action,” he said.
He added that the aim is to make sure at least 75 present of the detainees are aware of their basic rights and obligations.
