Newsline: South Sudan’s embassy in the UK closed over rent arrears

South Sudan’s consulate was forcibly closed after the premise owner called the police last week over a dispute on rental arrears of more than 4 months. When the police rushed to the scene, they have found the tenant arguing with the staff of the embassy. The Police then advised them to meet in court to settle the dispute. The court ordered the closure of the embassy and instructed the ambassador and staff to pay the rent arrears by the end of the month or risk further damage costs. The closure of the embassy of South Sudan adds to the growing list of embassies around the world who are either behind in rental payments or moved to more affordable premises to avoid closure.
