South Sudan’s ministry of interior, immigration department has suspended the issuance of Nationality and passport documents as contractors hired to produce these documents demand unpaid arrears, police spokesman said.

Speaking to Radio Tamazuj on Tuesday, Daniel Justin said the ministry of finance last week reached an agreement with the contractors on payment. He said the operations will resume soon.

For the past few weeks, citizens have been complaining that they have not been able to obtain or renew their nationality or passports.
