Juba (Borglobe) ...the preliminary investigation in to the recently impounded white helicopter saga has indicated that the splinter Sudan People’s Liberation Movement for Democratic Change was clearly behind the coordination of George Athor’s infamous rebellion, officials revealed yesterday.
Lam Akol, the SPLM-DC chairman, provided a financial support of 200,000 Sudanese Pounds for a ten-hour operation, said yesterday at a press conference in New Sudan hotel.
He said Lam was ardently instrumental in linking the former renegade general George Athor to the National Intelligence Security Services, but noted that the two couldn’t reach a harmonious settlement.
“Athor does not seem to accept most of their proposals”, Gier said in a power point presentation, after which he regretted that no insufficient evidence was found to implicate the party members suspected of taking part in a horrendous killing in the Uper Nile last May.
Former SPLM-DC , who defected from the party citing no vision among other reasons, was said to be a supporting source of the information.
Armed skirmishes in southern Sudan threaten to jeopardize the independence vote, but will be contained according to officials.
“Any one who will interfere with it will be responsible for what will come after ”, Gier said.
In June, Gier wrote to the former Minister of Legal Affairs and Constitutional Development, Micheal Makuei Lueth, seeking legal advice on how to investigate suspected SPLM-DC members of Southern Sudan Legislative Assembly. SPLM-DC MPs’ immunity was waived resultantly.
Minister for Legal Affairs and Constitutional Development John Luk Jok wrote to the Speaker of Southern Sudan Legislative Assembly James Wani Igga, informing the house that investigation has found no sufficient evidence implicating the accused members in the killing. The regional parliament is yet to finalize on whether to restore the waived immunity of the SPLM-DC members.
