We welcome the publication of the Commission of Inquiry report and are actively encouraging the African Union to establish the Hybrid Court as soon as possible. In October, the UN Security Council, with UK support, amended the mandate of the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) to be able to provide technical assistance to set up both the Hybrid Court and also the Commission for Truth, Reconciliation and Healing.
