“It came to our notice that the legal procedures that the authorities are putting in place have been derailed with devastating rumors in regards to Abuk Lual Lual case. And to assure you, the crimes Sabir committed aren’t condoned by anyone including the police.

“We are all waiting for legal 15 days of appeal. We reached ten days yesterday without appeal so the procedure toward implementation has to start. Second, we all know that only three states namely, Wau, Juba and Malakal fall under legal category of execution, death execution.”

He further added that upon the consent of the prison authority, the inmate will be placed live.
