Author : | Published: Thursday, October 29, 2015

The ambassador of the Netherlands to South Sudan has called upon the warring parties to fully implement the peace agreement.

The government, the SPLM in Opposition, and the Former Political Detainees signed the deal in August, but there have been reports of violations of the ceasefire.

Robert Van Den Dool says a lasting peace in South Sudan depends on the implementation of the agreement.

He spoke on Wednesday in Juba during the release of a report on perception of truth, justice and healing in South Sudan after the outbreak of the conflict.

“The people of South Sudan are tired of war and conflict. And a new beginning is indeed needed,” Mr Dool said.

“The success of a lasting peace for the South Sudanese people depend on the implementation of this agreement and this agreement can only be implemented with the joint efforts of all and hard work of everyone involve.”

The survey found that a majority of the respondents believe that forgiveness is the way to achieve reconciliation.

Many respondents also prefer a national formal court as the appropriate mechanism of accountability for crimes committed in the conflict.

The South Sudan Law Society in partnership with the United Nations Development Program interviewed more than 1,500 people between 2014 and 2015.
