UN Human Rights Commission Experts to Visit Ethiopia, S.Sudan and Uganda


The United Nations Commission of Human Rights in South Sudan started, on 7 September, a 19-day mission that will involve visiting South Sudan, Ethiopia and Uganda.

The team will, during their visit to the three East African nations, reportedly meet political and community leaders, refugees and internally displaced people as well as members of the international community regarding the human rights situation in South Sudan.

The three commissioners were, in March this year, mandated by the UN Human Rights Council to monitor and report on the human rights situation in South Sudan, establish a factual basis for transitional justice and to provide guidance to the Transitional Government of National Unity (TGoNU) of South Sudan on transitional justice.
