Making people accountable for their actions is a pre-condition for reconciliation in South Sudan, according to a top UN Human Rights official.
Currently on a six day visit to the civil war-torn country, Ivan Simonovic said justice must be implemented alongside peace to prevent people from escaping the consequences of crimes they have committed.
The Assistant Secretary-General shared that message during a string of meetings with key ministers and members of the legislature.
Over a year of conflict has devastated the lives of millions of South Sudanese, displacing nearly 2 million people and leading to the widespread break-down of law and order.
Reech Malual began by asking Mr Simonovic how his meetings went.
