U.N. urges S/Sudan to respect rights of Machar’s spokesman

The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), has urged the South Sudanese government to respect the rights of the deported spokesman of the opposition.

James Dak of the SPLM-IO was deported to South Sudan from Kenya on Monday after he issued a statement on Facebook supporting the dismissal of Kenyan United Nations Mission in South Sudan commander.

The UNHCR says Dak had previously been granted refugee status by the Kenyan authorities.
