Bashir sure to face genocide charge

The chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court said on Monday he is confident the court’s judges will soon charge Sudan’s president with genocide and three Darfur rebels with war crimes.


A three-judge panel at The Hague-based court in March issued a warrant for the arrest of President Omar Hassan al-Bashir on suspicion of war crimes and crimes against humanity for deportations and mass killings in Sudan‘s western Darfur region.

 


While they charged Bashir on seven counts of crimes in Darfur, two of the three judges deemed the evidence insufficient to support genocide. In an interview, the prosecutor, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, said he had clarified the case to the point that it should meet the judges’ high evidence threshold.
