South Sudan’s army the SPLA and main armed opposition group, the SPLA-IO led by the country’s former First Vice President Dr. Riek Machar said the war-zone American journalist was caught in the fighting between the two sides.
”Since his death, there has been no meaningful push from any government or International agency for responsibility to be taken for the killing. No call for an investigation. in South Sudan, the killing continues“ said Eddie Einbeder Luks, Christoper’s uncle.
”Since my cousin was killed, the lack of action by government or media actors to seek justice has left us feeling paralyzed. Fear of offending the only parties that could possibly investigate has caused well intended letters and articles to sit unsent and unpublished time passes and interest wanes. There remains a painful need for someone to care,” he said.
