This is an urgent action from Amnesty.
Magai was trying to stop his cousin fighting with another boy in the neighbourhood. He took his dad’s gun and fired it at the ground to scare the boy away. But the bullet ricocheted and hit his cousin, who later died in hospital.
In his trial Magai was not allowed a lawyer. He told the judge he was just 15, but he was sentenced to death regardless. This is illegal by both international and South Sudan law.
If you are able to spare a moment to add your name to the petition that would be appreciated.
