South Sudan Cabinet Approves Abyei Ruling

JUBA (smc) Sudan Vision Daily
The recently announced award on Abyei tribunal in The Hague was approved on Friday by the Council of Ministers of the Government of Southern Sudan.
The arbitration tribunal on July 22 said that the Abyei Boundary Commission Experts had exceeded their mandate when they included Heglig and Bamboo oilfields in the territory of the nine Dinka Ngok chiefdoms transferred to Kordofan in 1905 and annexed the oil rich area to southern Kordofan state.
The ruling of Abyei Arbitration Tribunal was presented to GOSS Council of Ministers by the Vice President, Dr. Riek Machar Teny. The cabinet passed a resolution to support the ruling and urged for its implementation on the ground.
Addressing the public during the commemoration of the Martyrs Day on Thursday, 30th July, the day on which late leader Dr. John Garang died, President Salva Kiir invited to Juba both the Ngok-Dinka and Misseriya chiefs to forge the way forward in the region.
The people of Southern Sudan will vote in the 2011 referendum, which is 18 months from now, to choose between creating an independent country and confirming the current unity with the North.
