The United Nations Human Rights Council has held a panel discussion on the Human Rights Situation in South Sudan in Geneva.

In its resolution 26-31on technical and capacity-building assistance for South Sudan in the field of human rights, which was adopted in June this year, the Human Rights Council decided to convene a panel discussion on the human rights situation in South Sudan.

The panel was held during the twenty-seventh session of the Human Rights Council yesterday evening.

One of the lead panelists who addressed the session was South Sudanese Minister of Justice, Paulino Wanawilla Unango.

In his presentation, Minister Wanawilla said the Government of South Sudan is working to restore stability and peace in the country, particularly in Juba.

He said that the government has created a peace building committee that goes out particularly to the Internally Displaced Persons at United Nations Mission camps to work with them and convince them to return home.

Honorable Wanawilla said those who have come out, the government has done all it can to provide for them what they need.

He said the Government has created a crisis management committee whose job it has been, among other things, to provide stability to the population by reminding people that the conflict is the result of political fight and not an ethnic one.
