"We demand justice for Sister Veronica Rackova" said His Exc. Mgr. Erkolano Lodu Tombe, Bishop of Yei, in southern Sudan, wondering why the government in Juba is remaining silent with regards to the responsibilities of the killing of the nun.
On May 16, 2016 Sister Veronica Rackova, a Slovak nun of the Holy Spirit
Missionary Sisters (SSP) and Director of St Bakhita's Medical Centre in
Yei, was seriously injured at a checkpoint controlled by the armed
forces of South Sudan (SPLA).
Sister Veronica passed away on May 20 at
Nairobi Hospital in Kenya, where she had been taken.
The investigation into the death of the nun is blocked and now the
Bishop of Yei, on behalf of family members, is asking why the
authorities are remaining silent, even though some arrests had been
reported at the beginning.
