South Sudan: Troika Statement on Recent Violence in Unity State March 1, 2022

The Troika is deeply concerned by allegations of egregious human rights violations and abuses in Unity State, including killing of citizens, rape, destruction of homes, and the looting of humanitarian supplies. The Troika calls upon state and national leaders to denounce the brutality and intervene to halt the violence. We expect the Government of South Sudan to conduct timely and transparent investigations of these allegations and to identify and hold accountable the perpetrators responsible for them, regardless of affiliation. We urge all sides to seek a peaceful resolution of differences through sincere dialogue and conflict mitigation efforts.
