During his 30 years rule. Al-Bashir and other ex-government officials allegedly committed atrocity crimes against Black African Communities in Sudan. While many had hoped that the transition to a new government could bring an end to atrocity crimes in Sudan. The failure to address the root of atrocity crimes and the failure to co-operate with the ICC in Sudan encourage the widespread ethnic violence and attacks on civilian populations.
