    Yeah, read it. This article is too big to post in here, therefore I have just brought important part of it to you to take a look at it. If you want to read it all, please go to South Sudan.net. Anyway, here it is: Shocked

    Day 4 Wednesday 18th.March.2009, Pibor County

    The facts finding committee accompanied by the county security committee led by the commissioner held a consultative meeting with the officers of Battalion 359 at the army barrack. Col. Peter Ruei the Commander of Battalion 359 of brigade 47, division 8 explained that the Lou Nuer attacks information came to them from Juba , therefore, the devastation which rocked Likwangole Payam came with the knowledge of the divisional commander.

    Col. Peter Ruei reported that his command issued standing orders that when the Lou Nuer attack begins the army must not intervene. He said that the Lou Nuer from three counties mobilized themselves to attack Likwangole Payam, Gurumuk Payam and Pibor county head quarters as briefed by our command.

    Col. Peter Ruei said his Battalion are all from Lou Nuer except a few who come from Bahr el Ghazal and Upper Nile states, according to him this force does not reflect the true face SPLA and hence , he recommends transfer of all officers from sons of Jonglei state from this force. He mainly recommends transfer of officers from Lou Nuer who forms the majority of the officers in this Battalion.

    Maj. Simon Dak Kier; stated that when they were organized in Bor to come to Pibor, the message given was that we are going to fight with Murle before even reaching Pibor, but when we moved from Bor to Pibor we never met any hostile behavior until we reached Pibor peacefully and found that the people here are peaceful and friendly, contrary to the information of violence and hatreds as we were told by our command. Most of these forces are from Akobo County .

    According to Maj. Simon Dak Kier this formation encourages tribalism therefore; battalion 359 and its command must be transferred and be thoroughly mixed with SPLA forces from sons of other areas before they are deployed in any area.

    Cpl. Nasser Akol recommends the following;

    1. All officers from Jonglei state in this battalion should be transferred

    2. All traders from Jonglei state coming in and out of Pibor County should be handled by the civilian police.

    3. Bor – Pibor road must be patrolled and cars must be provided with security escort from Bor to Ayidi and vice versa.

    Day 5 Thursday 19th.March.2009, Pibor County

    The facts finding committee finished its facts finding mission and requested a plane to return to Juba, however, the plane could not come due to lack of funds to be paid to the flight company, as a result, the facts finding committee has to spend one day in Pibor as a wasted time. Before leaving Pibor County on above date Lou Nuer new group was reportedly moving towards Murle land again, and the committee returned back to Juba on 20th. 3 .2009 arriving Juba at 10:45 am.

    Dear Doang

    Thank you for bringing this article to our attentions. But, Doang, this report is full of liars, nothing true about. It was written by especial interest who are against Lou Nuer. I do not know if you actually gets the full report. It was all about untrue about.
