S.Sudan frees journalist held for over 2 years without charge

South Sudan

The South Sudanese government on Friday freed a South Sudanese journalist working for a United Nations radio station after two and a half years of imprisonment, U.N. officials said.

George Livio, who worked for Radio Miraya, was arrested in August 2014 but never brought to trial.

β€œHe has been released and UNMISS is looking into his needs right now,” said Daniel Dickinson, spokesman for the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).
