A Busy News Day

62Several important developments related to Darfur are surfacing. Here’s the rundown –

The International Criminal Court’s arrest warrant for Sudanese president Omar Al-Bashir will most likely be issued secretly to protect victims and witnesses and strengthen the chances of apprehending additional suspects. However, Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo stated that the matter of issuance will be decided “sooner rather than later”.

A Janjaweed militiaman was killed in Western Sudan after an argument with internally displaced persons.

Fifteen human rights groups, including Human Rights Watch and Save Darfur, have challenged the Sudanese government’s claim that the humanitarian and security situation in Darfur is improving. Their report states that the “government of Sudan is lying about the reality in Darfur while conducting a charm offensive”.

    although that the leader of Sudan will probably soon face justice but there still have been a lot of problem concerning the war, famine, and death, just to name a few. But to really make progress, there has to be education where the children will have better access to learning. I believe that building a school will be small step towards a greater progress but it will really help in the long run, which in turn would exponentially grow in the future like this site: Emma Academy Project which will be building a school in Sudan in honor of Emma McCune who saved the WarChild from war. With this in mind, we can truly expect that there will be a bright future for the children that will be going to school away from harm.
