Ceasefire monitors seek ‘freedom of movement’

The Cease Fire and Transitional Monitoring Mechanism says freedom of movement is the biggest challenge it faces in executing its mandate.

CTSAMM says it finds itself in a difficult situation to address security matters as part of the implementation of the peace agreement.

“The biggest challenge for CTSAMM is one; it has remained like that, it will be again the same-is the freedom of movement to do its work,” says Faha Shawul, a senior member of CTSSAM.

“It is in a difficult situation, CTSAMM itself. It is condemned if it comes forward in the open; it is condemned when it gives low profile,” he explained.

“So the task and the way it addresses the problems and engages parties and the international community is very delicate, it needs a balance. It needs a careful maneuvering”.

Mr Faha was speaking at a cluster meeting in Juba yesterday.

The meeting brought together undersecretaries of different ministries and senior government officials to discuss development plans in line with the peace deal.
