Feb 01, 2015-Khartoum-SudaneseOnline-African Union (AU) has called on the International Criminal Court (ICC) to drop or suspend charges against Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir and Kenyan Deputy President William Ruto until African concerns about the court and proposals to change its founding treaty are considered
The demand came in a report on Saturday on previous decisions made by African Union leaders.
The African Union has accused the ICC of disproportionately targeting Africans. The court has indicted only Africans so far, although half of the eight cases it is prosecuting were referred to it by African governments themselves.
Ruto and radio journalist Joshua Sang have been charged with crimes against humanity for their alleged role in orchestrating Kenya's 2007-08 post-election violence. Their trial is under way at the ICC.
Kenyatta and Ruto were on opposing sides of the post-election violence but joined forces to win the presidency in the March 2013 polls.
The ICC has issued an arrest warrant for Al-Bashir for failing to respond to summons to answer to charges of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity for the violence in Darfur.
