Renewing the Call for the South Sudan Transitional Government to Conduct a Credible Investigation Into Journalist Christopher Allen’s Death

South Sudan’s transitional government recently announced the outcome of a long overdue investigation into the August 26, 2017 death of journalist Christopher Allen, a dual U.S. and UK citizen who was shot and killed while covering the conflict in South Sudan. The subsequently released report does not address in a comprehensive manner all the factors that led to Mr. Allen’s death or the disrespectful treatment of his remains. We renew our call on the transitional government to conduct a credible investigation into Mr. Allen’s death and to demonstrate the political will to take accountability seriously.
