We are not aware of specific incidents of individuals being required not to organise protests as a condition of their release. However, we continue to make clear to the Government of South Sudan our expectation that all detainees will be treated in accordance with international standards. This includes ensuring their unconditional release if there are no charges to be brought against them.
