What can help prevent human rights violations in South Sudan?

That's what the UN Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights, Ivan Simonovic, says he is seeking to answer during his second trip to the country.

The five day visit will include meeting a number of government officials as well as civil society actors in Juba, South Sudan's capital.

He is also scheduled to visit Bentiu, Malakal and Rumbek, locations which have been deeply affected by South Sudan's ongoing civil conflict since December 2013.

Reech Malual spoke with the Assistant Secretary General when he arrived at Juba airport.
