The UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) is erecting detention facilities for internally displaced people (IDPs) living on its protection sites who have committed crimes.
People are detained for up to 72 hours after which they are either let off with a warning or handed to national authorities.
The most common crimes committed are fighting and assault and battery. There have also been cases of rape or attempted murder.
More than 100,000 people are currently seeking shelter in UN protection in sites across the country.
