   STATEMENT ON THE CURRENT SITUATION   IN THE SUDAN      FOLLOWING   THE ICC PROSECUTOR'S APPLICATION      

 

                 On July 14, 2008, the court’s prosecutor, Luis Moreno Ocampo, asked Pre-Trial

          Chamber I to issue an arrest warrant for President Omar Hassan Ahmed al-Bashir on

charges of crimes against humanity and genocide.

The ICC’s Pre-Trial Chamber will review the information in the prosecutor’s application to

 

determine whether to grant the request for a warrant. It's only after the Pre- Trial chamber

 

judges satisfaction that there are “reasonable grounds to believe”  that al-Bashir has

 

committed ICC crimes, that an arrest warrant will be necessary to issue to bring him to trial.

 

    We herewith express our support for the above mentioned legal procedures

 

Maintaining our conviction that no one person should be above the law in war crimes

 

against humanity, genocide or torture.


  Since the Sudanese government has shown no willingness to collaborate with the

 

International Community on insuring security   and stopping the war in Darfur and

 

refused to surrender the first two suspects Ahmed Haroun and Ali Kosheib for their

 

alleged leading roles in war crimes in West Darfur :

 

 It is of vital importance to end impunity in the Sudan. We hope that this current

 

development in the Sudan would be a lesson   to the Sudanese Government   to fulfill all

 

its obligations to insure justice, security and peace in the country.
