Sudanese Minister of Information, Faisal Saleh, revealed that ousted President Omar al-Bashir and other suspects may be sent to The Hague for trial before the International Criminal Court.
According to what I published Agency “Reuters”, the transitional government in Sudan and the Sudanese Revolutionary Front, reached an agreement regarding the appearance of Bashir and his aides before the International Criminal Court, to try them on charges of war crimes, genocide and ethnic cleansing, in the Darfur region.
Faisal affirmed that the decision to extradite Al-Bashir needs the approval of the military and civilian rulers.
He said: “One possibility is that the International Criminal Court come here and then appear before the International Criminal Court in Khartoum, or that there may be a mixed court or they may be transferred to The Hague. This will be discussed with the International Criminal Court.”
Al-Bashir faces two arrest warrants issued by the International Criminal Court in 2009 and 2011 on five counts of crimes against humanity, two counts of war crimes, and three counts of genocide, in connection with the conflict in the Darfur region.
Since his ouster last April, Bashir has been in prison in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, for corruption and murdering demonstrators, in addition to war crimes charges brought against him by the International Criminal Court.
The conflict in Darfur erupted in 2003, after mostly non-Arab rebels revolted against the Khartoum government. Government forces and a militia mobilized to quell the rebellion were accused of widespread atrocities.
The Bashir government continued to refuse to cooperate with the International Criminal Court, which the Security Council referred to the Darfur file after an international mission conducted an investigation into allegations of crimes in the region.
One of his attorneys says that the isolated Sudanese president refuses to deal with the court, describing it as a “political court”, stressing that the Sudanese judiciary is capable of dealing with any case.
