Juba, 18 –10-2018; An official from South Sudan National Security Service [SSNSS] who spoke to this reporter in the condition of anonymity said the two South Sudanese nationals, Dong Samuel Luak and Aggrey Idri Ezbon are not in the detention facility in main headquarters of NSS, also known as the Blue House. 

Both Dong Samuel and Aggrey Ezbon were arrested and deported by the Kenyan security agents in collaboration with Juba government. They were deported in February 2017, since then their whereabouts remained an issue of concern. 

The National Security service official who spoke to SSLN in a condition of anonymity said the former Machar's spokesperson who was deported from Kenya in the same year with the arrangement of Juba, James Gatdet Dak is well in the facility in the Blue House. According to the same source, rebel governor for Kapoeta state, Brig. Marko Lokidor is also in the custody of NSS main house in Juba. Earlier reports pointed that Marko Lokidor was killed after his forcible kidnapped from Kakuma refugee camp in neighboring Kenya. 

The Khartoum peace agreement allows the warring parties to release all the political detainees and prisoner of wars [PoWs]. Last month South Sudan President's press secretary Ateny Wek Ateny, said Juba has no political detainees rather Juba has prisoners of Wars. 

James Gatdet Dak was sentenced to death by judge Wani early this year in Juba court, ever since Gatdet’s new legal team re-appeal the death sentence. 

According to Khartoum peace agreement James Gatdet, Dong Samuel, Aggrey Idri and many political detainees are supposed to be set free.
