Ref: Serious Atrocities Committed by the government of Salva Kiir and its Allied militias of Bul to the people of Lich state (Unity); Rubkona, Guit, Koch, Mayiandit, Leer and Payinjiar.

July 24, 2015 (SSNA) — In the light of the above mentioned subject, we, the Dok Community Association in Sudan, do hereby condemned in the strongest term possible the SERIOUS ATROCITIES committed, which include gangs raping young girls under 15years of age, burning a human being alive (i.e. children aging between 2 to 5years and elderly citizens), abduction of children, destruction of  properties and looting of cattles, mass displacement of the people and burning of all the local villages to ashes.

Salva Kiir’s government and its allied militias on the people of Unity State, during their recent intensified offensive against SPLM/A – IO in May and through June and July 2015. It is with a grieves concerns that, those SERIOUS ATROCITIES, committed are beyond human description and measures that, they are of a cowardice and barbaric in nature, that were thought not to be executed by any government or organization claiming to would have been elected by the same citizens whom it is committing barbaric acts against!

It is very unfortunate and painful that, salva Kiir’s forces and its ALLIED MILITIAS of Bul, claimed to protect the civilians, yet they (Kiir’s forces) are committing SERIOUS INHUMAN ACTS, for instant, gathering civilians (small children and elderly) and being ran over by a war tank, gathering young women in one hut after gang raping, and set them on fire!

Dok Community Association has recalled that, it is not the first time for these Bul militias to implement the policy of committing atrocities in the State’s Southern Counties; in 1998 -1999, These Bul militias, carryout ABDUCTION OF YOUNG GIRLS AND WOMEN, BURNING ALL VILLAGES which resulted to MASS DISPLACEMENT and also LOOTING CATTLE in Southern Unity State Counties;(Koch, Leer, Mayiandit and Payinjiar).  In 2014, they committed gang raping and destruction of MSF’s Health Facility, with the help of foreign mercenaries such as; JEM and SPLM – N, in Leer County.

Therefore, we, the Dok Community Association in Sudan – Khartoum, are hereby:

Urging the INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY, The IGAD countries except UGANDA, the AFRICAN UNION, UNMISS, UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL, TROIKA PARTNERS, and all the NATIONALS, REGIONAL and INTERNATIONAL RIGHT GROUPS, to condemn the so called government of Republic of South Sudan under Salva Kiir whose term as president expired, and its all ALLIED MILITIAS and to investigate the crimes being committed and bring the culprits and perpetrators before a well-recognized court of law..

We also urge all the sons and daughters of Dok, in all their different political and military affiliations, to take bold decisions, either individually or as group, to condemn Salva Kiir’s regime and its ALLIED MILITIAS of Bul, for the SERIOUS ATROCITIES they committed on our community and act now!

Furthermore, we as a community, from different parts of Sudan, recommend and want UNMISS to foster a civilians protection, to establish a BASE CAMP in Leer, for IDPs from Koch, Mayiandit and Leer, and another BASE CAMP in Payinjiar County.
