The SPLA spokesperson, Col. Philip Aguer Panyang was bitten by a foreign Chinese trained dog last Saturday at the Beijing Hotel in Juba.
Col. Aguer spoke to Gurtong over telephone from Beijing Hotel where he was attending a diplomatic meeting before the incidence occurred.
“Am now on treatment and my condition is not bad,” Aguer said.
While speaking to Gurtong today, Aguer said that the case is under investigation by the police to establish how the foreigners entered the country with their trained security dog.
Gurtong media could not reach Beijing Hotel manager to explain how the foreigners managed to let their dog into the hotel making it a threat to the customers.
Gurtong later learned that following the incident, the hotel manager was immediately taken into the custody for indirect crime held by his dog.
“A case will later be opened against the hotel manager over the indirect crime committed by his dog as legal procedures dictates,” Aguer added.
