South Sudan and Civil Liberties

Reporters without Borders, an international press freedom organization with headquarters in Paris, visited South Sudan in May and released in July 2012 an investigation report titled South Sudan: World's Youngest Country Yet to Embark on Road to Civil Liberties.

The single most important problem raised with Reporters without Borders during its visit was "the brutality of the security forces and the Sudan People's Liberation Army."
