UN Calls for an End to Impunity for Violations against Children in South Sudan

Published on

The United Nations (UN) has called for an end to the culture of impunity for violations against children in South Sudan. The country has been plagued by years of conflict and violence, which have had a devastating impact on children.

According to the UN, children in South Sudan continue to be subjected to various forms of abuse, including recruitment into armed groups, sexual violence, and forced displacement. The UN has urged the government and other parties to the conflict to take action to combat impunity for these crimes and to hold those responsible accountable.

In a statement, the UN called on the government of South Sudan to fully implement the Action Plan to End and Prevent All Grave Violations against Children, which was signed in 2012. The plan outlines a series of measures to protect children from violence and abuse, including measures to prevent their recruitment into armed groups.

The UN also urged the government to ensure that those responsible for violations against children are held accountable through fair and impartial trials. It called on all parties to the conflict to cease all violations against children and to respect their rights under international law.

The call to combat impunity for violations against children in South Sudan comes amid ongoing efforts to promote peace and stability in the country. The government of South Sudan and opposition groups signed a peace agreement in 2018, but progress toward its implementation has been slow.

The UN has been working with the government and other partners to support efforts to promote peace and stability in South Sudan. It has been providing humanitarian assistance to those affected by the conflict and supporting efforts to promote justice and accountability for human rights violations.
