Cambridge University student Peter Biar Ajak 'detained in hellhole'
    9 February 2019


Peter Biar Ajak was one of Sudan's "Lost Boys", displaced during the civil war

A Cambridge University student facing the death penalty in South Sudan is being "arbitrarily detained in a modern-day hellhole", his lawyer says.

PhD student Peter Biar Ajak, 35, a critic of his country's regime, has been detained without charge since his arrest at Juba Airport in July.

His lawyer Jared Genser said this was "in clear violation of his rights under international law".

The government of South Sudan could not be reached for comment.

With that headline, had to post but honestly, I hope he is freed and he is, one of those "Lost Boys", I'll have to find out more about him.

South Sudan NOT Sudan... in this case, Sudan is Muslim, South Sudan is different, I don't know much beyond that. Not too Muslim so this could be tribal or something.

Maybe we need to come up with a hashtag, or something.
