UN human rights experts begin mission in East Africa

JUBA (Xinhua) -- A UN human rights body on Wednesday began a 19-day mission to South Sudan, Ethiopia and Uganda to examine human rights situations there.

A statement from the UN Commission of Human Rights in South Sudan said they will 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.

“During their mission to South Sudan, the Commissioners, Yasmin Sooka, Ken Scott and Godfrey Musila, are scheduled to meet a number of ministers, parliamentarians, police, judicial officers, military officials and they have requested a meeting with President Salva Kiir,” the statement said.

“They will also conduct a number of visits to camps in Juba and Bentiu prior to their departure from South Sudan,” it said.

According to the statement, from Juba, the UN rights Commissioners will then visit Addis Ababa, where they will meet leaders of the African Union, the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) as well as other members of the international community and civil society.

They will then proceed to Kampala and Adjumani in Uganda, where they will visit the refugee settlements housing South Sudanese refugees.

The Commission is scheduled to present a comprehensive written report to the Human Rights Council at its 34th regular session in March 2017.
