The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein is deploying a 10-member mission to South Sudan in order to assess the country’s human rights situation. This is in response to allegations of human rights abuses by perpetrators on both sides of the political divide within the landlocked country.
Mr. Zeid has said that the assessment report is to be presented to the UN Human Rights Council at its next session in March 2016. He added that it would also contain recommendations for how the situation in South Sudan can be improved.
