Map of South Sudan has No legal Basis
Khartoum - The Advisor of Human Rights Committee at the Ministry of Justice Muaaz Tango emphasized that human rights in the country are maintained by the Islamic Sharia which preserves the right of the individual and the group besides putting the interest of the group over individual interest. He added in an interview with Sudan Vision to be published later that the superpowers look at the human rights from the political perspective only as they surpassed development issues, indicating that the African Union adopted the issues of human rights and the economic, social and political development besides a person right to obtain clean water.
He said that the international borders are holy and no other country can change its borders to annex any part where there is wealth or mineral, adding that the AU adopted the borders left by colonization as a reference for resolving disputes among the states of the AU. He added that the international law granted the aggrieved country to defend its sovereignty and be compensated for the losses resulted from the aggression of the other country in a manner suits the volume of the damage.
He referred to the act of the government of South Sudan regarding issuance of a map in which it included Heglig and the contested areas as meaningless to the international law and Sudan just can object to it to make it illegitimate. He attributed the move to the report of the experts headed by Thomas Douglas whom he described as having no experience in the international law and border demarcation. They hide ill intention towards Sudan to deprive it of oil wealth and transfer it to the State of the South.
