JOINT LOCAL STATEMENT ON GRSS decision to expel DSRSG Toby Lanzer

 02/06/2015

 "The European Union Delegation, the Heads of Missions of Denmark, Germany, Italy,

The Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, The United Kingdom, and the Heads of Mission of Canada, of Norway, and of Switzerland issue the following statement in South Sudan:

"The Heads of Mission join UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon in condemning the decision of the Government of South Sudan to expel Mr Toby Lanzer, Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary General.

Mr Lanzer has spared no effort on behalf of the millions of victims of the man-made crisis in South Sudan. He has echoed the views of many members of the international community who believe it is time that the leaders of South Sudan pay heed to the suffering of their people, and make the decisions and compromises that their people and the deepening humanitarian tragedy demand.

The Heads of Mission call for Mr Lanzer to be reinstated and to be allowed to serve out the term of his appointment.

The Heads of Mission further call for all those who are working in the humanitarian field, from UN Agencies and Non-Governmental Organisations alike, to be accorded full respect and for their vital work to be facilitated by the Government of South Sudan."
