Few if any of the inmates said they had access to lawyers and around a third of the prisoners had spent months on remand awaiting trial, the guards said. South Sudan still executes prisoners convicted of murder, despite concerns about the lack of defence lawyers and a shortage of trained judges. Pairs of death row inmates are routinely shackled together, using leg-irons, to prevent them from escaping.
