Alfred Taban, prominent journalist and chief editor of the daily English newspaper, Juba Monitor, was transferred from the National Security Service (NSS) headquarters on 22 July to police custody in Juba town. He has been charged with ‘publishing or communicating false statements prejudicial to Southern Sudan’ and ‘undermining the authority of or insulting the president’.
Amnesty International is concerned about the fairness of proceedings leading to the trial and conviction of Leonard Peltier, an Ashinabe-Lakota Native American who was convicted of murdering two FBI agents.
