No official request to transport SPLM-IO advance team – UN

Author : | Published: Friday, December 4, 2015

The UN Mission in South Sudan says it has not received an official request for transportation of the SPLM in Opposition delegation to Juba.

The opposition advance team is expected in Juba to start participating in the implementation of the peace agreement.

The Spokesperson of the SPLM in opposition, James Gadet told earlier Eye Radio that more than 550 of their members are stranded, waiting for transportation to Juba.

On Thursday, the Spokesperson in the Office of the President, Ateny Wek Ateny, told Eye Radio IGAD and UNMISS say they can only transport 50 members of the advanced team of the SPLM-In opposition.

However, in a statement to Eye Radio, the UNMISS Spokesperson said it has not received any request.

Miss Shantal Persand says the UN mission is ready to accept the request, but “requests for the use of UNMISS assets for such purposes would need to be sent to UNMISS by IGAD or the JMEC, with the agreement of the parties”.
