UN Security Council Sanctions Committee on S. Sudan meets Wednesday


April 8, 2018 (NEW YORK) –The 2206 United Nations Security Council Sanctions Committee will meet with its Panel of Experts on 11 April to discuss its final report and recommendations on war-hit South Sudan.

The committee will also be briefed by the Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict, Virginia Gamba.

In April, the 15-member Council expects to receive a briefing on the UN mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) followed by consultations.

Council members also expect to receive the monthly report from the Secretary-General on violations of the Status of Forces Agreement (SoFA) or obstructions to UNMISS, as requested in resolution 2406. The mandate of UN peacekeeping mission expires on 15 March 2019.

In October last year, a report from the Security Council committee highlighted a number of issues, such as the high-level revitalization forum for parties to the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in war-torn South Sudan, the regional efforts of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development, the dire humanitarian and economic situation and possible impact of additional sanctions.

In March last year, a UN panel of experts called for an arms embargo on South Sudan after it emerged that its government was spending oil revenue on weapons as its citizens faced starvation. The call was, however, opposed by China and Russia, insisting regional nations must play a key role in resolving the South Sudan problem.

South Sudan descended into war in mid-December 2013 when Kiir accused his former deputy Riek Machar of plotting a coup. The conflict has forced more than two million people to flee their homes.

    I believe the right time has come for the security council to take a concert action by using strike measures against those who are lying down obstacles against peace in South Sudan. the suffering of the people has gone beyond imagination, hundreds thousand refuge, 1.5million IDP, 2.5million on brink of starvation, potential genocide, human rights abuse, gang rape cases including the Terrian Hotel.

    • 9 April 2018 09:41, by Theallseeingeye

      Grand raiding (e.g. looting of UNWFP Warehouse in Capital Juba), massive dignified corruption, arbitrary detention of human rights activist & journalists, none freedom of expression, hindrance of humanitarian access, not to forget to mention lack of salary for several months and firing complaining staffs (US embassy driver), diversion of public funds towards procurement of weapons....

      • 9 April 2018 09:58, by Theallseeingeye

        in order to prepare for another phases of War, refusal to sign HRF Declaration of Principle, firing against US decision to restrict the flow of arms in the country which total explains why peace can’t be attained, just to mention a few. Now what is UNSC is waiting for?

      Individual like Michael Makuei Lueth, should be sanctioned by banning him from traveling abroad, he should have his assets freeze. This man is the measure obstacle to peace in South Sudan. However, we want sanctions with action, not just by words of mouth ya UNSC.

        Take it easy. Wait for the flog from sanctions. You have killed a lot of our innocent loved ones. You do not need even to open your mouth.

  • 9 April 2018 10:59, by Sunday Junup

    Koryom 2,
    The problem of your war tone id that you usually run outside country when it come man to man! You started it in 1984 by massacre Gajaak but when we retaliate in 1991 you run to Kakuma and return in 2005. You started again in 2013 and when we retaliate in 2014, you run and occupied Nimule and Uganda.I hope you are mobilizing UPDF, Egypt,Rwanda,GEM,SPLA-N, M23 and Torobora to fight for you

  • 9 April 2018 11:15, by Lenin Bull

    You mongrels don’t celebrate. US is usung the UN Security Council for regime change so that it will after wards access oil reserve in South Sudan. It has nothing to do with Riek or IO/Nuer. Don’t be emotional idiots. War will never be ended by US/UN security council. It will stop when South Sudanese take their destiny into their own hands and behalf like dignified people not stupid bastards.

    • 9 April 2018 11:23, by Eastern

      Lenin Bull,

      So be it! America is the single most contributer to the UN so it has every right to put its mouth where is money goes! How much have Russian invested in South Sudan? How much was the Chinese rice?

      • 9 April 2018 11:31, by Lenin Bull

        Eastern, you are son of a whore who goes to bed with anyone with money. Having money in the UN doesn’t make one right. US is prescribing wrong peace strategy in South Sudan. If Soutrh Sudanese don’t willingly even your next puppet government installed by US/foreigners will not last for a weak leave alone one month. The other tribes hated by IO/Nuer will take to bush to bring you down because that

        • 9 April 2018 11:33, by Lenin Bull

          That will be modus operandus to take to the bush and bring down the government of the day in South Sudan and this will be like that till the second coming of JESUS!

          • 9 April 2018 12:40, by jubaone

            Lenin Fool,
            The US babysitted and wiped your butts clean and in the end you simply dashed to these short-legged chinese bastards for help. Worthless creatures. One jienge one bullet and then defecate into his stinking mouth, snitch bitch

  • 9 April 2018 11:26, by Lenin Bull

    There are many black markets for weapons in the region including Sudan which is issuing out weapons out like biscuits and sweets to all people interested in destabilizing their countries( Eritrea, Ethiopia, Egypt, Chad, Central Africa, South Sudan, Uganda/LRA, Elshabab in Somali rebels all get free weapons in Sudan. These rebels further sell these weapons for food to survive in B Markets.

    • 9 April 2018 11:46, by Theallseeingeye

      Lenin Bull

      Then its just that simple, dissolve the government, accept sharing of power,resource & Machar, because after all we none Jienge and Machar as well they are not extraterrestrial beings from outer space they are South Sudanese too, rather than letting those "American or Foreigners" take our country resource.

      • 9 April 2018 11:55, by Lenin Bull

        Theallseeingeye, you are in fact blind and not seeing anything at all! Resource and power sharing do not apply here in the current context. You are idiots copycatting nonsense. Here you have your states, counties, payams, and bomas, and all these receive equal money/budget from the central government, plus your local revenue sources. Further which power do you want to share when you have it?

        • 9 April 2018 12:00, by Lenin Bull

          As for your NGUNDANEG messiah Riek, he doesn’t need to kill people to get power nor beg the whole world to install him in Juba and chase away Kiir. what he needs is to sign peace so that total peace comes back to South Sudan and then we go for elections where he can even take power wholesome rather than share it with any other dude! You IO bastards are not using your brains but asses to reason.

  • 9 April 2018 11:48, by Lenin Bull

    Eastern and the rest of IO internet warriors, be aware that US, Australia, Israel, Canada, etc are deporting South Sudanese back to South Sudan directly. You spoil and destabilize the only promised land you have under the sun and it backfires on you. Soon IO warriors have nowhere for sanctuary except to make peace and respect South Sudan as your only motherland on earth!

    • 9 April 2018 11:59, by Theallseeingeye

      you cannot marginalize the whole other ethnics groups because of your greed. you betrayed the rest of 63 ethnic groups by claiming you liberated the country alone. we cannot let go away with that, we shall fight over it until we get our right and dignity, because Jienge believe that it only who fought deserve right in South Sudan.

      • 9 April 2018 12:09, by Theallseeingeye

        as as for the UNSC, they are none of our concern or focus, in fact "The enemy of my enemy is my friend". so be it, sanctions, UN interim, UN trusteeship, we don’t care, because we are fad up now, there is nothing that we are gaining under this state that we can be proud of, just humiliation, marginalization, discrimination, poverty,war, etc. Just look at us now, where are we? refugee camp

        • 9 April 2018 12:11, by Theallseeingeye

          IDPs sites, etc. we have nothing to loose because we have lost everything together with the hope we had since IGAD has already taken side, we are ready to try sanction, UN Trusteeship, or what ever might come...

    • 9 April 2018 12:44, by jubaone

      Lenin Fool,
      These are jienge and nyagat criminals who as congenital thieves took this stealing habit to the US and Australia. Lazy idiots and unable to work have lived on mugging and robbing others and now both countries are deporting them. 24 have already arrived in Juba adding to the number of jienge bandits terrorizing Juba. Jienge sakit!

  • 9 April 2018 12:05, by Lenin Bull

    My friend the Theallseeingeye or should I call you allseeingnothing. No Dinka have ever said your above statements. Those are political made up stories to tarnish the good image of the Great Dinka Nation by people being haunted by past full of betrayal and treason. When the war broke out in 2013, it was all about Nuer 75% of the national army and they deceived themselves they can take power byforc

  • 9 April 2018 17:19, by Puot Nyangore

    Let UN security council in this leadership of Trump be positive not to think negatively by prioritizing their interest like John Kerry and Obama administration that were facilitating killing of Dr.Machar on his way to Congo. Most South Sudanese hope that Trump administration is rich that will not be bribe with oils of South Sudan, which will work on peace to come by putting South Sudanese interest
