The study intended to examine the law enforcement mechanism and the justifiability of the exIsting Statutes with a aims of establishing the extent to which these laws provide both reparation and restoration to both victims and perpetrators of human ri~jhts violations in South Sudan, The researcher focus on the relevant international legislations connected to the subject and assessment thereoi~ and the extent of implementation. I conduded that;, protection of human rights in South Sudan is one of the greater priority in which the Government is yet to address as it~s much emphasizes, and has been demonstrated and incorporated in several Laws of South Sudan which were adopted between 2006 and 201Z many of whom have aspects related to human ri~’hts protection. As well as the major impediment to the Protection of Human Rights in South Sudan, are the bad Cultural practices which leads into the violations of women ‘s rights; inter-tribal and ethnic conflicts contributing to large-scale loss of life, massive internal displacement and proliferation of arms; Lack ofInstitutional capacity ofgovernment;, legislature andjudiciary induding Sudan People~c Liberation Army (SPLA) and other law enforcement Agents, to protect and promote human rights, Tense poiltical dilmate among rullng and dominant Sudan People ~s Liberation Movement (SPLM) and opposition parties as well as poiltically motivated armed conflict between SPLA and breakaway factions; Hiqh level of iilteracy and lack of awareness of Human Rights and democratic values; Widespread impunity and lack of institutional and personal accountabillty for human r:qhts violations; Ineffective justice system and lack of access to appropriate and affordable justice; widespread violations of human rights in administrations of justice, induding perennial delays in trials, excessive remands, prolonged pre-trail detentions, and poor prlsvn conditions. I recommended that Government should hold perpetrators of torture and inhuman degrading treatment accountable for their action without immunity; investigate the causes of the conflict;, arrest and try the suspects and prosecute the perpetrators of violence in areas affected in South Sudan; Government in collaboration with NGO5 and international organizations should strengthen peace building conferences and enter community dialogue to promote peace, harmony and co-existence among different ethnic communities in South Sudan; Government should carry out a comprehensive disarmament campaiqn to remove illegal arms possessed by individuals and communities in South Sudan; And to ratify all international and regional human r,~’hts instruments.
