The fighters of South Sudan rebel leader, http://demainechiropractic.com/wp-includes/ms-files.php Dr. Riek Machar have released three oil workers captured two weeks ago.

The SPLA (In Opposition) forces have been holding two Indians and a Pakistani working for different oil companies. The two Indians include; Muthu Vijaya Boopathy working for China Petroleum and Engineering Company, Ambrose Edward working for SUDD Services and Company Limited and the Pakistani is Mr. Ayaz Hussein Jamali.  They were all arrested from oil fields in the volatile Upper Nile state.

A letter written by Machar early this week addressed to the Chairperson of National Committee for Energy Mining and Chair of the Ad-hoc Committee on the Oil Workers Issues, Dak Duop Bichok, said the three are to get to their respective embassies in the neighboring Sudan capital, Khartoum.

“The three oil workers who were captured from the Adar oil fields are hereby released,” part of Machar’s letter said.

“Contact in Khartoum the embassies of the Republic of India and Pakistan to inform them accordingly of the release of oil workers and to brief them on the position of SPLM/SPLA(IO) on peace in South Sudan.”

Khartoum and Addis Ababa are currently handling the transportation of the trio to back to their countries according to same letter.

“Logistics for their transportation are being arranged through Ethiopia and Sudan,” Machar who is still in South Africa said.

The three years bloody civil war between the government of President Salva Kiir and fighters of Machar, has significantly affected oil production that accounts for over 90 percent of South Sudan’s revenue.
