South Sudan Lawmaker pass controversial security Bill
JUBA— South Sudanese lawmakers on Wednesday passed the hotly debated and, in the eyes of some, controversial National Security bill, which gives security forces the right to arrest suspected criminals without a warrant.
The bill was passed into law in its fourth reading after a sometimes raucous debate that lasted three hours. Some lawmakers, including Onyoti Adigo, the leader of SPLM-DC minority in parliament, walked out during the debate to show their opposition to the bill.
